I really can't get to deeply involved in this thread. You can't change hate and it's a waste of time to try..
what does learning the NA game have to do with a players demeanor on the ice? In Ovechkin's one plus year in the NHL, he's already playing a more N-S game than Jagr has and will.

It's not hate...you see the love for Tyutin, Prucha, Lundqvist. It's something about correlating those types of players who play a more western type of game with a greater amount of passion. Regardless of points, Prucha is more liked than Hossa because of this. Prucha hits, takes hits, goes N-S, and hustles his *** off.
