The all Canadian 1909 NHA predates the NHL; Canadian players make up 60% of the NHL talent; Canada's best hockey players all play for American clubs (save Luongo and Iginla); 18 years and counting since a Canadien team brought home Lord Stanley's Cup to Canada; with the arrival of Winnipeg Jets there are now 7 hockey clubs in Canada - include Quebec[Hamilton] and that would make 8, the same number of teams in the CFL; if Canada had its own league the quality of hockey would greatly improve since all the players would be Canadian (the Americans could always create their own league and trophy); Canada could play in the Olympics and any other tournaments without have to consult the NHL in New York; we could go back to the old rules with the old Conferences Prince of Wales/Campbell and take back "all" our trophies; and best of all "NO GARY BETTMAN"!!!
Should Canada create its own professional hockey league with at least one team in every Province/Territory with support from the Federal Government and tax revenues going to the Province/Territory?
