Speaking of Canada's team, we just won the u-18 world championship 3-2 against the US. Something we can all cheer and agree upon.

The term Canada's team is meaningless to me. There are 30 teams, the Habs are mine.

It's so tiresome to try to want to be Canada's team, and honestly quite pathetic. I think that's what gets Canuck and Leaf fans a lot of hate - their claim that they represent Canada (obviously having achieved different things in the last decade - i.e. SCF vs nothing). Leafs WANT to be Canada's team so badly, just like Toronto wants to be the center of Canada and for us to fawn all over them. I know that there are lots of Habs fans and that's really all that matters.

But interesting breakdown, OP.

If anyone took the time to read this Leaf-o-ganda, the headline does not match the story. Demers doesn't refer to the Leafs as Canada's team, only they are "positioned to become".

Leafs is CBC's team. Not Canada's team.

Next favourite CBC's team: the Boston Bruins.

Why ? The clown with the funny suits and ties.

Maritimes are loaded with habs fans, leafs fans too, but since they haven't made the playoffs in forever, they are becoming a little harder to find

my whole family are leafs fans. theres definitely too many of them here. Canada's team won 3-2 today in the world u18 vs USA. it was nice to see cause the USA have been pretty dominant in this tourney in the past decade.
