    I live in Boston (Im a habs fan) and everyone tells me they hate canada. Funny, because the habs are mostly european or american, while the bruins are infested with canadians. The only american is Thomas.

    You forgot the coach is from Canada too. LOL Good question bud

    I've made this arguement in the past. Last year to my buddies from up north when they said they'd root for Van over the B's since they were a Canadian team. After that, I got a few to join in on rooting them on.

    Ivy, thank you for mentioning Bergeron. Been my favorite Bruin for a long time now. I hope he gets the C some day.

    Ha, I'd never think to call them that, hahahah! I love the Bruins and I love Canada, though, so call them what you want, I guess. But I agree with previous poster about Thomas and Chara being the best on the team--but I'd stick Bergie in there, too! :)

    Haha I wouldn't say poor man's. Their scoring stars are often overlooked for their gritty style of play but they're certainly a gifted team with talent that doesn't need big names on the roster.

    They are a pretty good hockey 'team'. Team Canada is made up of all-stars that may or may not always come together as a 'team' - one for all and all for one!

    I would agree with you, if their 2 best players (Chara and Thomas) were Canadian.

    Ohhhh. So that's why they're so successful.

    Really. Makes sense.

    But isn't Timmy T from the US?
