4. Toronto - Hockey Hall of Fame - Where lord stanley calls home.
5. Toronto - Where the nhl awards are held each year.
6. Toronto - Where most of the most annoying fans in hockey come from.
7. Toronto - Center of the universe. Rest of Canada considering to trade the city to the States for Seattle and Minneapolis.

Honestly though, they're all great hockey cities and they all deserve due credit for being as such. Anyone who knows anything about hockey can see the merits of all our NHL cities and of course each one has its negatives as well.

This is the best one out of all of them for sure. Why bother winning the cup since it lives in your town anyways? I knew there was a reason...

And who gets any hockey info from the Globe and Mail?

I've lived and played all over Canada and would say that imo, the best *hockey* (not-just NHL) cities are thus:
Montreal
Toronto
Edmonton
Moose Jaw
Kamloops
Halifax/Dartmouth
Winnipeg/Calgary

Vancouver is not even on the list and I live around there. Someone above said Van had the loudest fans. That very well may be, but being loud and knowing or playing hockey do not constitute the same thing. I was at the Van game last night and a lot of the fans only know when to cheer if the goal light is on or if everyone else is. And they boo when someone gets hurt!? WTF

Not gonna comment on the rest, but I must say you have weird arguments with people from Montreal. Selling ads? You make it sound like Montrealers are proud as peacocks of their team's "ad-selling ability."

Of course I am unable to verify this, but do you honestly believe that all Edmonton and Hab fans combined are far less the "Leafs Nations"?

Above you give the population of "Leaf Nation" as "10 million." I saw no footnotes there and I'm curious where you got this number (1/3 of Canada to put it in perspective). If you are looking to make a "rep" for yourself, you are well on your way judging from the response you've garnered in the Burke/Strachan thread and here.

If Kingston is gonna be on this list, it would have more to do with Doug Gilmour than Don Cherry.

You are the quintessential annoying Toronto fan. You show no respect for the game by posting such a biased, ignorant and Toronto-centric reply.

I say Montreal, but I can honestly say that I believe that Toronto is as good a hockey city as Montreal minus the cups and socio political infuence.

Edmonton has over 30 NHLers who originate from there. Only the Toronto area has produced more current players.

As expected, there are WAY too many personal insults in here to let it continue.
