Giroux is winning either way, but I'll throw a vote to Tavares.

Congo Jack 05-23-2012 10:29 PM

I hate Detroit!

Adama0905 05-23-2012 10:29 PM

Hating Detroit is like hating the guy that you used to battle it out in high school with to get better grades (not that I ever did that), but turned out to be much more successful than you when they graduated high school (edit - almost forgot the most important part) AND they don't even remember that you exist. There's not a rivalry going on at all anymore, so why care.

And I would much rather Datsyuk win than JT. Not that I hate JT or anything, but Datsyuk is awesome and JT has a stupid face.

Crymson 05-23-2012 10:31 PM

I think the rivalry is over. And I don't think anyone anywhere could possibly have a reason to dislike Pavel Datsyuk. The guy is a hardworking, team-oriented, classy guy who is thrilling to watch on the ice and is funny and kind off the ice.

Not really a fan of Datsyuk but I don't hate him. Henrik on the other hand a legit man crush.:D

Still hate Lidstrom,Howard.Holmstrom and indifferent about Bertuzzi. The rest I don't mind.

BrickAHL 05-23-2012 11:16 PM

John Tavares is awesome so I will vote for him but Datsyuk is pretty cool too but it sucks that he plays for those ********. Any team that has Quincey and Bertuzzi on it makes me hate them.

Didn't you guys boo Duchene at your draft party when he got drafted? This might make me refrain from voting. Plus there is no way I choose JT over Lundqvist and especially Rinne if he does make it to the next round.

Pretty much meh on him. Yeah, he didn't have nice things to say about the avs but IMO it was blown out of proportion.

billybobjoe1881 05-24-2012 12:52 AM

Detroit, Vancouver and New Jersey. My three most hated teams.

Why would anybody hate Lidstrom? As Bob Cole has said, there may not be a finer gentleman in the league.

I absolutely despise Pavel Datsyuk for playing for the Red Wings despite being so damn likeable and amazing. The rivalry may be dead, but my hatred of the Detroit Red Wings was a significant part of growing up for me, and so will never fully go away, even if it's not shared by the players or organizations anymore.

He's the last player from the rivalry era, just because he's good guy doesn't mean I can't hate him. I'm sure you and many wings fans despise Forsberg but would love it if he was on your team. Cole is senile now so...:laugh:

What do you think?

I hate any team that has this POS on their roster.

I literally can not understand how any Avs fan can feel indifferent about that piece of human garbage.

Helton4Hall 05-24-2012 07:13 AM

I have a reason to hate Datsyuk, he plays for the red wings.

Bubba Thudd 05-24-2012 07:45 AM

I still hate the Redwings.
But I hate the Canucks even more.

Cynthesis 05-24-2012 09:30 AM

Those of us that were actually old enough to appreciate the rivalry while it was happening, will hate the Dead Wings for the rest of our life. Everyone I know here in Denver who is a die hard Avs fan feels the same way.

+1


I think Zetterberg is the only guy I can ever forgive for being a Red Wing (I'm part Swede). The rest of them I'll always hate.

And signing Bertuzzi and keeping that POS in the league is like frosting on the spoiled cake.

I'd vote, but nhl.com has decided that you need a password less than 6 characters to log in to the site and a password greater than 6 characters to do anything else.

Also, Adama's argument is terrible. Grades in no way secure higher income potential.

Also x2, Bertuzzi is a POS, therefore Detroit is.

iAvs 05-24-2012 11:52 AM

I still hate the Wings. But yea, the rivalry isn't close to what it used to be & chalk that up to the Avs going into rebuild mode and not being a powerhouse in the West anymore. The Avs vs Wings games today are more for the fans rather than the players IMO. No more hate on the ice.

Exactly!

I was in high school when the rivalry was at it's height and hated ANYTHING to do with the Wings. Uwe Krupp... I disowned him when he went to Detroit, lol

Deep down I will always hate them. I think the players on both teams respect the rivalry for what happened in the past, but there's no way it goes back to what it was in the late 90's. Those type of rivalries are rare and will be remembered in sports history.
