Any time any other Canadian team has become Canada's Team for the remainder of the Stanley Cup playoffs, there's been a national focus, which goes beyond CBC's Hockey Night In Canada, for several years now. It's becoming a famous number. Like 1942. For years fans chanted "Nineteen forty two!" to the New York Rangers before the finally won the Stanley Cup 52 years later. Like 1967.

Terry Jones showcases the rigorous fact-checking standards that give Sun Media its unmatched reputation. For those that may not know: 1942 - Leafs come back from 3-0 deficit against Detroit to win the Stanley Cup 1940 - The Rangers win their last Stanley Cup before 1994. Chants of "19-40" hurt while those of "19-42" only come from the media gondola. And no, Vancouver will never be Canada's team. You have to have fans outside of your city for that to happen.
