Does East Coast bias exist? Maybe. For some, staying up until after midnight to catch Western Conference hockey is tough to do for those with kids and/or early morning jobs.
So you can forgive the people of Ottawa for not knowing who Bobby Ryan is. As part of getting to know his new city after coming to the Senators in a July trade, the former Anaheim Duck took to the streets of Canada's capital to get some fans' thoughts on the coming season and their new star forward.
He does have the face of angel, sir. And he'd make a damn fine ice model.
This bit is similar to the one New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey did for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in July. Many of those New Yorkers didn't know who the latest Mets pitching hope was during a stellar start to his season.
Hopefully Ryan's season doesn't end like Harvey's did.
