Kings fans hate him for his ripping the C off his jersey before the 00-01 season after He was offered as much as Pronger, badmouthing the Kings after He left, coming back and loafing it and refusing 2 trades in his second tenure.

I don't think Lombardi realized the disdain that Kings fans have for Blake when He signed him. I am sure Lombardi also shares in that disdain.

Above and beyond that, I hate him personally because I've met the guy in person a few times.
Not to mention refusing to waive a few years back, only to sign with SJ the following offseason.

Kings Fan's hate for Blake is not unfounded (although at this point it should be apathy).
