Love that with the NHL back, I can revert to hating all of those teams. Sergio Momesso, Esa Tikhanen, Jamie Macoun are just a few on the most hated list. Add Doug Gilmour and Claude Lemieux for some Eastern Canada flavor.
Side story...lived in Calgary for almost 10 years (came back to the Peg in 2007). Was shopping in Coop one day, and saw Jamie Macoun standing in the dairy section. Blood got boiling, and seriously thought about backing up the aisle and taking a run at him...sanity took over and chickened out. Old guys will know why I was angry
