    How many Canadian teams made the "75-team" NHL playoffs. Sydney Crosby is great and it would be nice if he could play a whole season.

    The team that Won It All this year was 41% Canadian. The US has ten times as many people.

    But surely not ten times as many people who play ice hockey.

    Almost certainly not. But at least 100 times as many people who live on Big Macs and Coca Cola. :-)
