comes down to devotion and all the emotional over-reacting that comes with insane degrees of that. Grudges are held for years, little plays are blown way out of proportion, other (Canadian) fanbases are attacked and retaliate with the same vitriol and it ends up a simmering hurricane of dislike in the calm times that turns into outright hatred during turbulent times such as games against and when one team has success (and their fans relentlessly remind everyone) and others don't (and constantly hear about it). There are fans that devoted and who get that worked up for every NHL team but they don't exist in hordes in the US.
