POLL: Patriots Still Seen As Likeliest Next World Champs

Very early voting in our latest FenwayNation Poll shows that—despite yesterday's heartbreaking loss in Super Bowl LII—the Patriots are still seen as the Boston team closest to another world championship (34%). As the chart shows, however, the Celtics are very close behind in the race for the next ring—with fully 31% of our readers opting for The Green. This is not too surprising, given the play of Kyrie Irving this year—and the near-term prospect of Gordon Hayward in the 2018-19 season (not to mention a bevy of young talent to go with them). Just under one-quarter of our readers (24%) think the Red Sox will be the next team to hoist hardware—which is a bit odd, considering that this is a Red Sox fan site. Finally, only one in ten readers (10%) believe that the Bruins will be the first to add a banner to the rafters—despite their impressive showing so far in the NHL season.
