Actually it's from people who haven't kept up on recent events.

Bert used to be booed during the Minny/Vancouver rivalry because of the s*** he and Mitchell (Bert of the 'nucks, Mitchell of the Wild) used to start, as well as the constant rivalry that had formed over years of hotly contested regular season matches and playoff series'.

Of course, basically none of the Canucks that were there for the old rivalry are there now, and ironically Mitchell isn't even on the Wild anymore. So that leaves bitterness for a guy who is now on the Wings, which is a team almost universally hated across the league for it's success.

Think of it like people who would boo the Avalanche today because of Claude Lemieux or Patrick Roy.

Actually Bertuzzi gets booed here for a different reason:

During the 2003 playoffs and the Canucks being up 3-1 in the series against the Wild, Bert said the following in an interview after game 4 in St. Paul to the Wild fans: "Don't bother buying tickets for game 6, Vancouver will finish the series at home".

We all know that the Wild came back and eliminated the Canucks 4-3 that year. Since then Bertuzzi has been booed.

So for even less hes booed. If it wasn't bad enough he looked like an idiot and the Wild coming back and eliminating him, they have to boo him for what he said 8 years ago ?

Columbus, Ohio -- Seems Vancouver's Alex Burrows isn't a big fan of the city of Detroit -- or the Red Wings.

When asked by AOL FanHouse about playing Detroit in the playoffs, Burrows said, "We don't mind facing anyone, but as far as Detroit, the only thing I dislike is having to fly there and having to stay there, to have to spend a couple of days in that city."

Boo that man!!!

I think he also told the Wild players to get their golf clubs ready during one of the games.

Actually Bert was booed before that. He was booed earlier in the same series in a game following some end-game fisticuffs where Canuck fans wound up throwing s*** on the ice either on Wild players or their coach. Bert just got caught up in the rivalry that had been forming already.
