There are only two Canadian teams left in the NHL playoffs, the Edmonton Oilers and the Ottawa Senators.
The nice and logical thing to do is cheer for both, because yay Canada, etc.
You know, after forgetting about the Leafs.
But, apparently, that's not how this works. We must choose which one will be Canada's Team.
Until one of them is knocked out, that is.
Ottawa and Edmonton's respective newspapers are fighting.
(Yes, this counts as a fight in Canada.)
Even the idea of "Canada's team" itself has become a fight.
Everyone's getting in on it.
It also doesn't help that Ottawa and Edmonton aren't exactly treated as Canada's ~darlings~.
So tell us...
