Tucker was adored as a Leaf. As much as Neil as a Senator. Despite is ignominious exit, that hit and goal struck at the heart of Leaf fan pride.

I'm glad a Leafer dropped on to show some perspective. The Leafs fans I knew a the time were irrationally livid over the stick throwing joke. I thought it was great, and kind of expected Leaf fans to have a laugh as well. :shrug

Leaf fan here, and when younger, I didn't think of it as "friends" playing around with eachother, but I also never took it as a serious attack on someone. He was having some fun, I'd probably do something like that to one of my buddies just for the laughs, if you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at? Alfie is a great player, and It will be a sad day when he hangs 'em up.

I think a lot of Leafs fans use the stick incident as a excuse to hate Alfie but really, they don't need one. We understand if you hate our players. I hate Sundin for absolutely no reason.

Isn't it also a sign of respect? They were both great players an excellent captains for their respective teams.

That's what it is more than anything. Both players burned the opposing team for years and years.

Thanks for clearing that up. I never had the desire to actually ask Leaf fans in person why they booed Alfie but I knew it had to do with the Tucker hit. I think a lot of younger fans (i.e early teens) growing up now won't have a clue where the hate stems from, which is pretty sad.

When Alfie retires they will have their pick of four Swedes to boo, I doubt they ever boo their Mississauga boy Spezza.
