I don't hate Kunitz or Niskanen or MAF or Martin.
That's because they are a much, much, much lesser part of the Penguins identity. Crosby is probably 95% of their identity, Malkin included. He is their face, he is their captain and cornerstone, he symbolizes how the Penguins **** the bed for years in order to get good. When you think of Crosby, all of these things are naturally intertwined with your impression of him, and they're pretty much impossible to separate from your perception of him.

I'm not saying you don't hate Crosby for his behavior and antics; obviously you would know that more than I do. I'm just saying you would hate him a lot less if he weren't a Penguin, and you would adore him if he were a Flyer.

EDIT: And how can you not hate Kunitz? God, he's such a little piece of ****, too
