The Saskatoon Wheaties

My favorite stats nerd has a thorough analysis why Canadian teams can’t win the Stanley cup. He’s absolutely right – Canadian teams have fans who will turn up no matter the quality.

To improve this situation, there need to be more Canadian teams – he says up to eight more. His figures say that Saskatoon isn’t a viable franchise based on 150,000 hockey fans – he doesn’t know that the only other professional sports team in the province (the Riders) draws on the entire province.
