Toronto Maple Leafs

I have a soft spot for the Jets, but their best chance was from a few seasons ago. I'd say the Oilers are currently the biggest disappointments along with the Leafs.
 
Out of 32 teams, only 7 are Canadian so that really dilutes their chances of winning. People forget that way back when the Leafs frequently won the SC that there were only 6 teams...

All other things being equal, 7 Canadian Teams out of 32 should win the cup 21.87% of the time or slightly more than once every 5 years.

Each individual team in the league, should win the cup, on average 3.1% of the time or about once every 32 years.

If we start the clock in the 94-95 season (after Montreal won the cup, the last Canadian team to have done so) that's 29 years w/o a Canadian team winning.

There were fewer than 32 teams though much of that period.....but ignoring that, statistically, we should have had at least 4 (5 if you round up) Canadian cup winners.

So we just have shitty below average teams then! ;)

From several days ago but Ryan O'Reilly scored a pair for his new Nashville Preds team to beat the Leafs:


An earlier article as he discusses his time with the Leafs and leaving in the summer:

The Leafs are ranked as Europe's "favourite" NHL team:

I imagine that the amount of people in Europe who give even the slightest shit about hockey (and even less so the NHL) is tiny. Maybe slightly more in a handful of specific countries - Czechia, Slovakia, Sweden and Finland.
