Canadian fans do cheer for Canadian teams.
The Canucks cup run was one of the most mind-numbingly annoying things I've ever had to be a part of. Logging onto Twitter/Facebook/anything and seeing a bunch of people who don't even watch hockey and bandwaggoning the Canucks because they're Canadian was the most awful thing ever. Most of these people who were supporting the team had no clue of the team minus the fact they were Canadian. People looked at me like I'm not a Canadian citizen for the sheer fact that I cheered for Boston.
Fact is, hockey (sports in general actually) make people into xenophobic, overly-patriotic monsters. Skim the comment section on the TSN website for great examples of this. Gotta love psychotic fans cheering when kids get injured on the ice and calling all non-Canadian players p*ssy's because they can't handle the "TOUGH BRUISING CANADIAN STYLE".
