I find amusing how Vancouver media and fans seem to think that Canada (and North America for that matter) hate them so much simply because they are a top team in the West.
I love watching Boston, Philly and St. Louis. Being a Leafs fan I dont hate those teams because they are better than mine, its because I enjoy watching them play and HOW they play.
I bought a Vancouver Todd Bertuzzi
jersey a year before the Steve Moore
incident and I was proud to wear it. A good Canadian team with respectable players.
That jersey has been in the back of my closet for the past 4 years collecting dust.
