Ken Hodge. He cost the Rangers ~ 400 goals and 900 assists.

I'm not a Rangers fan (though I like interacting w/you guys: you're very good fans), but I'll take a guess:

Any Rangers goalies after Richter and before King Henrik.

I can tell you why I hated him... Espo dealt Terry Carkner to get him. Absolutely loved Carkner for some reason (beating Kocur and Gillies in his rookie season perhaps!)

My all-time least favorite was Rich Pilon. I hated his face and his stupid number.

It's funny how many peoples perceptions of a player change much later on.

Sandy McCarthy won the Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award 2 years in a row (granted in the lean years). But fans did turn on him immediately when he refused to fight anymore.

Seeing Chris Simon on the list of one is strange to me. He did have a few "mini-moments" which I guess were precursers to what happened a few years later, but I couldn't imagine a single Ranger fan having any problems w/ Chris when he was here. The guy had real hockey hands and destroyed so many of the heavyweights in fights.

Rumun "Nigerian Nightmare" Ndur isn't fitting for anymore to hate. His 31 games are just a trivia answer to a random question regarding that 7 year death march.

I almost feel like digging through the archives to show the real opinions of Dale Purinton. If anything, prior to the eye gouging, Dale received a lot of the Girardi treatment. He was almost the only thing homegrown and developed in Hartford on the entire roster. As a result, Purinton defenders were a dime a dozen.

Dunham and Poti are deserving in my book because of their temperament. Dunham stood on him head after the trade and delivered a solid October/November prior to getting injured. But like Poti, they both had the skill, but came off in interviews as complete asshats. While the Rangers were losing, interviewers would push them and even criticizing their play. Instead of recognizing that the end result was a loss, they saw no problems in how they performed. I personally believe Chris Drury is seem too highly in everyone's eyes, but if he scored 5 goals and the Rangers lost 6-5, he would still be disappointed with himself and the end result. Mike Dunham and Tom Poti were not these type of figures.

Bernie Nichols. Blah.

If I remember correctly he was so shocked to be traded for Messier and spoke of himself in un-touchable status.

He was way to high on himself.

Sorry, but Ndur was horrible.
McCarthy was equally bad... I don't even wanna get into my most hated current Rangers...

*cough* Dawes... *cough* Strudwick...

Ulanov, didn't he help us bag Bure though? I guess that is sort of redeeming.

God, even Strudwick. He's not a good player but he's probably the best teammate the Rangers have had in the past decade.

Carkner never beat Gillies. Sorry you might have the wrong guy he was fighting but it never took place Beck jumped in and nothing was thrown

When he played he was one of the only bright spots for us. He made it worth watching. And that's worth something.

Thinking about it, I hate Jamie Lundmark for being such a total disappointment.

I hate no-one on the ice more than Billy Tibbetts, though. It was a shame when he was on the Rangers, defacing the team.

Oliwa was a Ranger...........totally forgot that one

and i would say i dont hate many but Hollweg takes the cake right now.....sick of the dumb penalties that cost games....................What I hate is all the stupid deals they made for old players

Seriously Marchant, Norstrom, Weight, Amonte, Zidliky, the list goes on over the years..................keep the freaking youth Einsteins
