Hometown Villains
 
Just got my edition of THN and they did a hometown villain edition. They did this 7 years ago and it was really good. Very predictable this time around, lots of Canucks hated by teams.

Calgary - Maxim Lapierre
Colorado - Ryan Kesler
Edmonton - Kevin Bieksa
Minnesota - Alex Burrows (not surprising)
Chicago* - Raffi Torres

I threw Raffi in there because he was fairly well disliked when he was a Canuck. See: Carcillo's presser + hit on Seabrook.

Anyhow, despite all this Pittsburgh has more hated players than us. Crosby for Philly and Washington, Cooke for Boston + 1 other I forget, Orpik for Carolina.

Also, in case you were wondering, ours is Brad Marchand again no real surprise there.

Agree, disagree? I think Lapierre for Calgary is kind of a stretch and don't understand Orpik for Carolina. My mom was very taken-aback anyone could hate her Burrows which I found quite hilarious.

that's how cold our rivalry has gotten with Calgary, they picked a player by reputation who hasn't really done anything to them.


Edmonton hating Bieksa is weird, lol.

If anyone, you'd think a Sedin because they always seem to come to play against Calgary. Either them or Bieksa.

If only Ohlund was still in town. He was good for destroying Ales Hemsky at least once per game.

The Twins would make more sense, now, as they destroy (insert Edmonton goaltender of the game's name here) at least once per game.

maybe Raymond as well as he seemed to have good games against the Flames.

David Booth taking out Karlsson as well was pretty bad.

arsmaster 11-22-2012 06:37 PM

Marchand, Chara, Keith, Torres (as an Oiler), Dustin brown, Drew Doighty, Toews, Byfuglien, and Cody Hodgson are mine.

You're a spiteful person aren't you? :laugh:

StrictlyCommercial 11-22-2012 06:51 PM

Why Toews?

His whiney face, grovelling to officials, holier than thou attitude, his 'expose them for what they are' comment and his series against us in 2010.

Toews is thought of as this special golden child who can do no wrong because he's canadian (and I enjoyed his moments for Team Canada) while Kane gets **** on because he's American. At least with Kane what you see is what you get a cocky kid...

Keep it simple. I hate any player that wears the Blackhawks or Bruins logo. They are all the same anyway. Remember when Duncan Keith was considered likeable on this board? How did that turn out again?

Although I have a small soft spot for Patrice Bergeron and Patrick Sharp.

Broke his neck.


I believe Skinner was concussed.

Reverend Mayhem 11-22-2012 10:14 PM

^ Makes sense now.

VinnyC 11-22-2012 11:01 PM

Don't forget Torres ****ing up Hossa, either. Guy will be #1 villian in Chicago for a while, specially if Hossa's career is cut short by concussion.

DennisReynolds 11-22-2012 11:03 PM

Calgary hates Booth I think

StringerBell 11-22-2012 11:22 PM

Why does Calgary hate Booth? Also, if OP wouldn't mind, who were LA, StL, Detroit and Nashville's most hated?

Hollywood Burrows 11-22-2012 11:31 PM

Lapierre for Calgary makes zero sense except maybe albertans are a bunch of french-hating bigots? Actually not much of a stretch.

Also this stuff is like catnip to me. Let the hate flow.

Thanks. I guessed Weber pretty easily, and had my suspicions for Doan, but Thornton and Suter really surprised me. Guess Preds are the vindictive type.

Considering how weak the Northwest division has been recently, I'm not shocked at all that every other team in our division hate someone on our team.

Whats the story behind Tampa hating Cooke?
