Montreal Canadiens Ranked #1 Pro Sports Brand In Canada

Habs are the best, but you already knew that.
Montreal Canadiens Ranked #1 Pro Sports Brand In Canada

There are some things that Montrealers just know. We know that drinking beer doesn't actually count as drinking, we know that poutine is most perfect dish ever created and of course, we know the Habs are the best. (even though some misguided individuals think that the Maple Leafs are Canada's team.)

Well here's a story that confirms at least one of those beliefs, because the Montreal Canadians have just been named the strongest professional sports brand in Canada.

Insightrix Research conducted by a survey of nearly 3,000 sports fans (evenly distributed among Canada's major cities). First they were asked to name the first team that comes to mind, they then were asked about team popularity, their level of respect, the loyalty of their fans and the condition of their arena or stadium.

And it comes as no surprise that the Montreal Canadiens are first on the list.

Here's how the rest of the country did.

1. Montreal Canadiens (of course)

2. Toronto Maple Leafs (oh, well)

3. Saskatchewan Roughriders (who?)

4. Toronto Blue Jays

5. Toronto Raptors

6. Winnipeg Jets

7. Vancouver Canucks

8. Calgary Flames

9. Ottawa Senators

10. Montreal Alouettes

Hockey nicknames are ubiquitous in the NHL. Pretty much everyone has one. But let's face it, most of them are just names like "Gally" — stale, unoriginal and based on the guy's last name. But sometimes, a hockey nickname comes around that's so genius and so telling of the man behind it that you just have to stand up and applaud.

Cole Caufield's nickname exists in this pantheon of genius hockey names. Apparently, the diminutive forward was dubbed "The Cock" by the one and only Shea Weber.

Here's Carey! After a very dramatic week for Montreal Canadiens fans, Carey Price decided to take to the ice for what looks like a short training session with the team. His short yet sweet appearance will certainly lift everyone's spirits and remind everyone to keep calm and Carey on.

In a video, Price is shown doing a few goalie drills without equipment on. While it's strange to see him on the ice out of his goalie gear, his swagger is unmistakable even after spending all this time away from the game.
