I don't know, man, I think it's a little more complicated than that. A lot of us (including me) switched from Montreal or Toronto when Ottawa came along and the former Montreal fans (including me) retain some goodwill towards the franchise of their youth. Also, most of us have no beef with teams on the other side of the country. I know I cheer for Vancouver, Calgary, or Edmonton when they're not going up against the Sens. And pretty much all Canadians are happy to see Winnipeg back. On the other hand, everyone hates the Leafs and delights in their perpetual suckage.
