Fair question, however in this comparison Markov is all-star and possibly the team's MVP. Van Ryn is a journeyman. Rage is proportional to the impact to the team.
I doubt either player intended that collision to happen as it did, but Van Ryn clearly was drawing the hit. What happened afterwards, as with a hypothetical role reversals is not really relevant.
Besides most fans play both sides of the fence rather comfortably, and can and will support either side of the same coin depending on the jersey being worn. It's not new.
