Anonymous response: Yes, some people do feel superior for being an original six team, but for others it’s just a symbol of hockey history that they are proud of. Does it mean anything? Not really, no. It just gives people something to respect and be proud of. It gives them something to be a part of, and who wouldn’t want to be a part of hockey history?
Confessor’s note: I’m not against a sense of pride. But when teams say “My team is original 6 so we deserve to score/win/get better players/etc.” That’s what I mean.

    It’s called having a sense of pride. There’s nothing wrong with being proud that your team is one of the original teams....
