Actually, as it turns out, America's friendly neighbor to the north is apparently going to be the winner, no matter how the last few games are sliced. Both teams are comprised of a majority of Canadians.
In fact, Vancouver's team actually has more Americans than Boston's team.
And even at that, out of 31 players for Vancouver, the number of American players, which already outnumbers those on America's Boston team? A whopping six.
So how many (or how few) of the 33 players on Boston's team are actually from the United States?
Four Americans, and TWENTY-TWO Canadians on America's Boston team. Rah rah, go America?
And yet there are fewer still homeland players on Canada's Vancouver team: only 16 Canadians there. O, Canada...
How do you even decide who to root for then?
My housemate and I play hockey but don't follow the professional league – stuff like this is probably why. But when we saw we could get the series on satellite even across the world in Malaysia and that it was an American team versus a Canadian team, we decided to get up at 8am to watch and have some fun rooting on our fellow Americans.
So I guess... “Go Canucks!!” ???
