Golden Knights Pressuring Canada? – It’s been 24 years since a Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup! In fact it’s a perfect trivia question…oh and the answer is the 1993 Montreal Canadiens who took the final in 5 games over the LA. Kings. To give you an idea how long ago that was…Gretzky was captain of the Kings and Patrick Roy was named the series MVP.
SO….are Canadian teams under the gun to win the cup before the expansion Vegas Golden Knights? Yes and no. Canadian teams and players have felt that pressure 5 years after not winning Lord Stanley’s mug. In fact…not making the playoffs was causing some major concerns. But if we’re to be honest…there are some American squads that need to win the Stanley Cup before the Knights…looking at you San Jose, Washington and Buffalo!
