I agree that the topic is vague. Hated by his players? Hated by other teams? Hated by fans? But I'll throw out three names that haven't been mentioned yet:

Joe Crozier: In the WHA, he ordered one of his goons to attack Marc Tardif (this was far more violent than the Clarke-Kharlamov incident). Don Cherry said that instructing his players to intentionally injure an opponent's star player was something Crozier did a few other times in the AHL.

Bill Laforge: He was absolutely hated by the players in Vancouver during his brief tenure there. Had a lot of odd ideas when it came to practices.

Graham James: His vileness puts him in a category all by himself.
