Johnny Shotgun Posted April 26, 2015 Share Posted April 26, 2015 Face it since Bettman has become commissioner no Canadian team has won a Stanley Cup. The last Canadian winners were the '93 Canadiens. After the first round scramble and the real contenders surface the officiating becomes totally slanted towards the American clubs vs their Canadian counterparts. The NHL with NBC blessing initially tried to promote hockey in the southern regions Carolina, Tampa Bay which didn't produce the interest in the deep south they hoped for. Calgary actually beat Tampa in game 6 but the winning goal was waived off. So after that failed promotion NBC went back to ordering the league to promote the teams in the largest television markets. For this year will it be New York's turn to hoist the cup or send it back to California in Anaheim. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
