Default Was 2007 Canada's best hockey year ever?

Everywhere you look, Canada is winning another hockey prize.

Canada won gold at the Men's World Championship, the Women's World Championship and the World Junior Championship.

In the Stanley Cup Final, the American team won as the Anaheim Ducks topped the Ottawa Senators. But the Ducks are American only by geography. The Ducks had more Canadian-born players than any team in the NHL.

Canadians are bringing home the hardware for individual achievement, too. Scott Niedermayer just won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the NHL playoffs. Sidney Crosby led the regular season in points to claim the Art Ross Trophy, and Vincent Lecavalier earned the Rockey Richard Trophy by leading the league in goal scoring.

Twenty-five players were nominated for a year-end NHL award, and 17 of them were Canadians - including all three up for the Hart Trophy as league MVP; Crosby, Martin Brodeur, and Roberto Luongo.

Young Canadians are stepping up to the challenge, following Crosby's example.

Ryan Getzlaf led the Stanley Cup champion Ducks in playoff scoring. Jonathan Toews won gold at the World Juniors and the World Championship.

The Hamilton Bulldogs won the Calder Cup with Carey Price leading the way as AHL playoff MVP.

The Memorial Cup featured two American teams and two Canadian clubs. Medicine Hat and Vancouver reached the final, with the Giants prevailing thanks to a roster made up mostly of Canadian players.

Ya it just may have been the best year for Canada, I mean we've had 2004 with worlds/world cup but we didn't have the world juniors. So ya I agree, best year ever for Canada in international hockey.
