In my opinion you see this mentality a lot on message boards and among die-hards. I would say a lot of people try to separate themselves from the peons and bandwagoners who follow the team, so they latch onto other players as their favorite. I mean there's a reason I'm not getting an Ovechkin jersey when I get one, and it's because everyone else has one...It makes you look and feel like a better fan.

Just because Ovechkin+Backstrom is doing better than Ovechkin-Backstrom. Doesn't mean Backstrom is suddenly more important than Ovechkin. He's a great player, but this isn't a Malkin/Crosby style debate...
