Nice paper OP. Speaking of the military / NHL ties (one can also use the Winnipeg Jets / RCAF thing as an example), I believe that is because the NHL has strong historic ties to working class Scottish Canadians, who do tend to have a robust patriotism and military appreciation within their community.
