No Canadian聽team has won a Stanley Cup since 1993 Authentic Sebastian Janikowski Jersey , and no Canadian team has appeared in the Stanley Cup Final since 2011. With the sport of hockey as big as it is in the Great White North to not have a champion from their country in 25 years it's a tough pill to swallow for any Canadian hockey fan.聽The closest Canada came this year was seeing the Winnipeg Jets reach the Western Conference Finals and going into the 2018-19 season, the way the Canadian rosters stack up, the Jets are likely still Canada's best hope for its next Stanley Cup champion.

Winnipeg has never won a Stanley Cup and with Connor聽Hellebuyck off a breakout year, their blue line intact, and their talented group of forwards getting a long playoff run under their belt Adidas Mikko Rantanen Jersey , next year could very well be聽 their year. As for the other six Canadian teams only four (Montreal, Toronto, Edmonton, and Calgary) have won the Stanley Cup before, but Vancouver and Ottawa have been to the Stanley Cup Final before with the end result not going their way.

Having both the Canucks and the Senators as a combined 0-4 record in the Stanley Cup Final (Vancouver 0-3 Marquis Haynes Color Rush Jersey , Ottawa 0-1) makes the fans of those franchises aggravated due to the fact that they have never seen a Stanley Cup being hoisted by their franchise.

Only two Canadian teams made the playoffs this year, which makes it seem like Canada will have the odds against them if they are to have the Cup return north of the border. But there are ways they could have that happen sooner rather than later.

With that being said here are one trade and one signing that each Canadian team need to do this summer in order to help their franchise have a chance to bring Lord Stanley's Cup back to the Great White North.

Former first-round Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman, who at only 30 is still younger than many of the NFL’s current starters, has retired amid a comeback attempt in Canada.

鈥淲e would like to thank Josh for his work and dedication. He was a consummate professional throughout camp,鈥?Montreal Alouettes General Manager Kavis Reed said. 鈥淲e respect his decision and we wish him the best in the future.鈥?/p>

Less than three weeks ago Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey , Freeman’s return to football provided an unexpected offseason feel-good story. The guy who once had a 4,000-yard season was giving it another go, more than two years after his last NFL action.

Someone asked me the other day, 鈥楧ude, are you out of money? Why are you playing in the CFL?鈥?鈥?Freeman told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times in early May. 鈥淚 said Joe Thornton Jersey , 鈥楤ecause I like playing football.’鈥?/p>

Freeman’s quick exit from Canada is a reminder that the CFL features great athletes and significant competition. Former CFL and NFL quarterback Doug Flutie, who arguably was the greatest CFL player of all time, recently explained during a visit to PFT Live the challenges presented by playing in Canada.

It’s important to keep this in mind at a time when many are assuming that Johnny Manziel’s ascension to the starting quarterback job with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will be simple or automatic.
