I'd be willing to bet that the Flames wouldn't lose a single fan if Iginla became a Canuck and/or won a Cup as a Canuck. I've been reading such ridiculous comments on the message board for over a decade and it's always the same - "if **** happens I'll stop being a *** fan" and when it does, all you hear are excuses and defenses of that same player that people were ready to burn at the stake! Bertuzzi went from being a thug who should be in jail to a player who was trying to right the wrongs he committed and is a better person for that.

I'll easily take that bet.
