You know the Will &Kate hoopla?

Well, Mats Sundin had toronto media analyzing his personal life. One occasion they snapped a shot of his girlfriend walking a dog. Saku Koivu had media break into his hospital room and take a picture of him when he had that stick in the eye injury. Particularly in Toronto and Montreal, media are all over these guys, and I guarantee most of the better players are probably recognized and approached regularly by the general populace, whereas most US stars can pretty much go incognito in the cities they live in(unless we are talking Ovechkin or Crosby)
