The development of the Canadian teams in the NHL
The development of the Canadian teams in the NHL has been a source of much debate among fans and pundits alike. With the exception of the Montreal Canadiens, who have been a powerhouse since the early days of the league, the Canadian teams have generally struggled to compete with the American and European teams.
However, there has been a recent upswing in the fortunes of the Canadian teams. The Edmonton Oilers Calgary Flames, and Ottawa Senators have all made deep runs in the playoffs in recent years and the Toronto Maple Leafs are currently one of the best teams in the league.
It remains to be seen whether this is a temporary trend or a sign of things to come, but one thing is for sure: hockey is Canada’s national sport and the country’s teams will always have a special place in the hearts of fans.

This is a marked improvement from last season, when only the Canadiens made the playoffs among Canadian teams.
It’s still early in the season, but Canadian fans are hopeful that their teams can keep up the good work and make a strong push for the playoffs. With any luck, we might even see more than one Canadian team make it to the Stanley Cup Finals!
The state of the Canadian teams in the NHL
Currently, there are seven Canadian teams in the NHL: the Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs Winnipeg Jets, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks.
Of these seven teams, the Canadiens are currently leading the way in terms of wins and points. The Senators, Maple Leafs and Jets are all currently battling it out for second place, with the Senators currently holding onto second spot.

But it’s not all good news for Canadian hockey fans The Ottawa Senators and the Vancouver Canucks are near the bottom of their respective conferences, and the Winnipeg Jets are struggling to keep up with the top teams in the West.
Still, there’s plenty of hockey left to be played, and anything can happen in the second half of the season. Here’s a look at how each Canadian team is faring so far.
Edmonton Oilers: First in the Western Conference
The Edmonton Oilers are off to a hot start this season, thanks in large part to their star players Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. With 50 points each, McDavid and Draisaitl are currently leading the league in scoring, and they show no signs of slowing down.
The Oilers have been strong on both ends of the ice this season, but their biggest weakness has been their goaltending. Goalie Cam Talbot has struggled at times, but he seems to have found his groove as of late. If Talbot can continue to play well, the Oilers should be a force to be reckoned with in the second half of the season.
Calgary Flames: Second in the Western Conference
The Calgary Flames have also been one of the NHL’s surprise teams this season. Led by young stars Matthew Tkachuk and Sean Monahan, Calgary sits just behind Edmonton in second place in the West.
Like Edmonton, Calgary has had some issues in net this year, but they seem to have found a solid solution in goaltender David Rittich. Rittich has taken over as the starter for Calgary and he has been stellar between
