So, out of 30 teams, Canucks are the one and only team that doesn't have any prospect in the World Juniors.
Out of all the Canadian teams,no other Canadian team have positioned themselves as well in the regular season and thus,the playoffs.
I am not going to make the effort for your rant but I would bet money on the overwhelming majority of these WJ players being draft picks.
So,enjoy the World Juniors.It is not the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Canadian teams that have made the Stanley Cup playoffs:
VANCOUVER 1st in the West and 1st in the NHL.
Ottawa-eight and last in the East.
VANCOUVER-1st in the West and 1st in the NHL
No other Canadian teams in the East or West made the playoffs.
Vancouver were the NW Divisional Champions and finished 3rd in the Western Conference.
Montreal finished last in the Eastern Conference.
Again,VANCOUVER were the NW Divisional Champions and finished 3rd in the Western Conference.
Again ,Montreal finished last in the Eastern Conference.
I hope Mr. Reputable reads the pathetic part that follows:
It’s truly pathetic. Two Canadian teams finished in the bottom five, out of 30, three years in a row. The worst indignity – the Montreal Canadiens, Les Glorieux,
ended this season in third-last place.
No Canadian-based team has won the Stanley Cup since Montreal won in 1993.
Then there are the Toronto Maple Leafs – the only team in the NHL not to make the playoffs even once since the lockout of 2004-05. Every season a lost season.
