Just as bad. Koivu was booed for 1 period. Jeter has been booed after winning 3 World Series for the Yankees and has been booed for the last three games.

Partial list of players I have personally heard being booed at the Old Forum : Guy Lafleur, Larry Robinson, Guy Lafleur, Ken Dryden, Serge Savard, Guy Carbonneau, Pete Mahovlich, Terry Harper (ok, ok), and did I mention Guy Lafleur?

Don't diss the Harp. Bill, do you remember the Harper story when he was being booed in a playoff series against Chicago ? For the younger posters, Harper was the original stay at home type D man. He was awkward,slow, but effective at what he did. He had virtually no offensive ability, and was often the fans whipping boy at the time. He would also drop the gloves frequently but probably never won a foight. He took some terrible beatings but never gave up. The game in question, he got the puck behind his net and the booing started. He came out towards the blueline because everyone was covered and he wasn't being challenged. The booing got louder. He crossed the Chicago blueline, the booing continued. He stayed wide, went behind the net, made a nifty pass in front, Danny Gallivan shouts 'He shoots He scores'. The booing stopped abruptly. I don't think I've ever seen a player do anything like that before or since.

I remember reading about that play later on. One of Harper's teammates called "The greatest ******* you goal in the history of hockey". Kinda funny. We often forget that players like that are essential to a hockey team. Not everyone is a superstar and the guys that have a lot of heart but less skill are just as important. I think a guy like Ward fits into that category. Of course, when you have the skill and the heart, that's the whole package.
