50-75? It was apparent there were hundreds. I'm not sure how it wouldn't bother an American player.

Sure, they will play.. and put on a nice smile. However.. when it comes to resigning a player, these incidients could come back in a decision making process.

It would be naive to think otherwise. Don't tell me you wouldn't reflect on the booing on your national anthem, if you were a player in a different city.

That being said, it does not compare to the Islander fans burning the Canadian flag outside the rink last post season.
