Five Canadian Teams Could Win The Cup

from the Toronto Star,
It's time for the Cup to come home. And Canada has just the teams — yes, more than one — to make it happen. This, of course, will come as some surprise to those legions of hockey fans in the United States intending to watch the NHL in its comeback season on either NBC or, ahem, the Outdoor Life Network. Check the schedules. Neither outlet has the slightest intention of showing any Canadian content if it can help it, regardless of the quality of the six squads north of the border. Well, U.S. fans from Tallahassee to Albuquerque are going to be mighty surprised when Lord Stanley's tournament gets down to the nitty-gritty next May and June. The new NHL, it appears likely, will feature more Canadian power than at any time since the late 1980s, partly because of the faded brilliance of the three U.S. clubs who have dominated the league for a decade.
