Biggest Villain in the NHL?

Obviously some of the choices are like comparing apples and oranges but should still be an interesting subject to debate.

The Anaheim Ducks? Did I miss something there?

I voted other because the one person I've grown to really hate is Steve Ott. I give him credit because he can actually score and put up points which is rare for the pests/goons in the league (only other one I can think of is Avery) but the thing I can't stand about Ott is he won't fight after his late/cheap hits. I don't know if I'm just biased from seeing the Dallas/Boston game this season but he seemed like the biggest ***** on the ice that I've seen all season.

Well, me being an Ott apologist, I'll defend him by saying he couldn't fight last season because of his hand injury (wore a brace), plus, like you pointed out, he was producing for his team which was riddled with injuries.

Come on, how couldn't you love a face like this

Avery





















Hard to say he isn't the villain of the NHL.

Baldsilly can't even get in the NHL...shouldn't he be excluded? He aspires to be the NHL's biggest villian.

Once Pronger spurns Philly like he did Edmonton, he'll climb the rankings.

But at 6'6'' it's hard to imagine that he's not already the biggest villian.

Crosby

I've heard that in his spare time he's a satanist and very very evil. There are rumors that he sold his soul to Lucifer in exchange for his hockey skills at a very young age.

Definitely Bettman. Nobody gets booed like him in every arena.

How can it be anyone but Bettman? Any time anyone doesn't like something about hockey, they blame it on him.

Bettman should be the easy choice here. Mildly surprised Sam Worthington (new Terminator) look-alike Avery is polling so well. Also thought Crosby would have more votes next to his name...
