I don't think of him that way either, but TBH that strikes me as just being a fan. I think of virtually every NHL player in terms of where they played, not where they lived. Different for the HOF voters who actually know them on a personal level.

In other words, I'd perceive it as Toronto-centric if Sundin beat Shanahan on an HFBoards poll. As an induction into the Hall, I'm not so sure that their team affiliation played such a big role.
