1. Players are called streaky because they do hot for say five or so games, then completely disappear the next. What you said though, does make everyone streaky, but I think the term streaky player is more of a player that does good, then disappears for a while. The top stars like Sedins, Giroux, Crosby, Malkin etc don't usually disappear for five or more games. Streaky is someone like David Booth, for a hometown example.
2. A bag skate is where the coach has every player skate lines (goal line, blue line, red line, blue line, goal line). When I played hockey and when we did a bag skate, we started on the goal line, skated to the blue line (stop), skate back to the goal line (stop), skate to the red line back to goal line and keeping do this until you've gone goal line to goal line. I'm sure NHL coaches have different variations though.
3. People usually hate a player (or all, in Canucks' cases) so they hate the team. They either hate the system you play, or how you play it. Usually rivalries come into play as well. For example, I hate Chicago and Boston, for obvious reasons.
4. Hockey is only interesting to certain nations. All I can say to this last question.
