No Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup since the Montreal Canadiens managed to get past the Los Angeles Kings in 1993. Since then several teams have made it back to the Cup Final, most recently the Vancouver Canucks in 2011, but no team from north of the border has sipped from the Cup in nearly 25 years.
But, with the Canadian teams finally turning the corner in terms of development, Lord Stanley could make his long awaited return to the Great White North before too long. The Ottawa Senators made it to within a goal of reaching the Final this past spring, while the Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs turned heads during the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Calgary Flames and b also figure to be strong threats in 2017-18, while the Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets have a lot to prove after disappointing campaigns.
So, who do you think has the best shot at winning the Stanley Cup amongst the Canadian teams in 2017-18?
