Canada's Team

In this year's playoffs Canada's team is.....the Los Angeles Kings!

As most of us know, the majority of people outside BC hate the Canucks far more than they like the Ottawa Senators. The other teams all have their smaller pockets of fans and opponents but the one team that truly brings this country together to cheer in unison is the LA Kings.

At the start of the season, I believed the Kings were one of the best teams in the West and, after more than a half season of underachieving they are starting to play like their talent level should dictate. Nice to see Penner playing well too.

Do Canada proud, LA.

I'm cheering for Philly, but I'd love to see the Kings go all the way in the west!

Nobody is Canada's Team.

Team Canada is Canada's Team.

Los Angeles is Los Angeles's Team and Vancouver Canucks is Vancouver's Team.

If the Kings beat the Canucks, I'm gonna cheer for them to go all the way, that's how much I "HATE" the Canucks.

I always hated LA because they got Gretzky from us. Another poster was right no team is Canada's team but the Canadian national team.

Having said that the default team seems to indicate Vancouver or Ottawa so if I had to make a choice I choose Ottawa.

I agree and disagree with this. While I don't like calling anyone "Canada's team" except Team Canada itself, you can't ignore the fact the tremendous support for the Kings to defeat Vancouver from cities outside BC.

I recognize the sentiment of the thread, but this can be discussed in the playoff gdt thread at this point.
