I used to be always amazed when Americans can relate to us Canadians. When it comes to hockey we have common ground which is great. I imagine most border cities know about Canadian culture and see shows on CBC and other Canadian networks so there is a kind of kinship. I see Seattle (which I think should have an NHL team), the Twin Cities, Detroit, Buffalo as major cities with people that at least have better knowledge about Canada than most. Can anyone give me other major cities in that vein? I can think of Portland OR and ME, Cleveland? New YOrk (becuse it is cosmopolitan), but after that I draw a blank.
