I figured I would start a little bit different topic, give everyone a place to talk about players who they do not like. I am not talking about Crosby if you are a Flyer fan or Claude Freaking Lemieux as a Wings fan, not the obvious neccesarilly but just who do you dislike, either current or retired.
MY STARTING LINEUP:
RYAN CLOWE I once saw him score a goal and chirp the ref for something that happened earlier in the play. He always wore a scowl and took every opportun
Kris Letang. He constantly tries to turn Hockey into soccer with his flamboyant diving.
Evander Kane. Cheapens the game by his on and off ice activities.
All time most hated would go to the ultimate cheap shot artists Tie Domi and Darius Kasparitus. At least Domi would occasionally fight so he finishes behind the only guy in Hockey who turned "turtling" into an Olympic sport.
My 2018-19 starting lineup of players who for this season I just cannot stand
Goalie As always Mike Smith. Biggest flopper in the game at any position, when the other team is applying too much pressure he feigns injury to get a whistle. No use whatsoever for him.
Defense pairing Dougie Hamilton mostly because I think after a certain age, somewhere around seven you should stop going by Dougie and go by Doug. His defense partner for this year I will go with Jacob Trouba
Alex Killorn, he's like Malkin-lite or Diet Corey Perry. He's a sneaky good player but also a sneaky douche. He's been a killer vs my favorite team so that doesn't help. Whenever there's some douche-baggery going on after the whistle he's often "around".
Good call on Phil Kessel @WordsOfWisdom he's overrated by everyone but the Cinnabon vendor, wears out his welcome at an increased pace at each new stop. His sister is better than him.
My nominee is Ulf Samuelson.
I've told this story on this site before.
It was a Rangers pre-season practice game the first season after Ulfie got traded to New York.
Shane Willis was a young kid trying to land a gig. He made a play, and had his face to the glass. Ulfie saw he was defenseless and ran him. At full tilt, rammed his elbow into the kid's head and watched the teeth and blood spew onto the ice. Cost Willis some nights in the hospital and a few
