As far as I know, Roots doesn't even produce merchandise for any other NHL team but the Leafs. Ottawa's too small a market for them to make such products when sport branded clothing is not a huge part of their business (outside of the Olympics at times). Unlike the Red Sox/Yankees example, there is a huge Leafs fanbase in Ottawa due to the short history of the modern day Sens, and any shop manager with a brain would and should cater to all available markets, which in Ottawa's case includes a lot of tourists visiting the nation's capital. To get upset about one of the country's most iconic teams being marketed in the capital region is ridiculous.
