Hockey fans in Canada are very knowledgeable.
They know players' stats, histories and tendencies. They just don't know what they look like.
You may remember Matt Harvey of the New York Mets hitting the streets and asking Big Apple baseball fans about himself -- and nobody recognized him!
Bobby Ryan, who was picked up in a trade by the Ottawa Senators in the offseason, picked up a mic and hit the streets asking Sens' fans about him. And wouldn't you know it, hardly anybody diagnosed that the man asking the questions was him.
