Like the least:
Commodore (after last season - liked his eccentric attitude the year before)
Methot (don't mind his play, but meh)
Blunden (as others say, he just seems to take up space)
Pahlsson (need more bang for the buck)
Mike Priest

I take it this is for current CBJ players? If so...
Like:
1. Umberger
2. Voracek
3. Nash
4. Brassard
5. Huselius (I dunno, just like the guy)

Honorable mention: Kana (hope he can prove to be NHL worthy) Commodore (bad season but just like the guy) and Garon (most under-appreciated player on the roster)

Dislike:
No one on the current roster I just don't like, but if I had to say...
1. Methot (supposed attitude)
2. Dorsett (supposed attitude)
3. Mason (the attitude he showed early last season, hopefully past that now)
4. Murray (nothing against the guy, just think if we were a good team he wouldn't make the roster)
5. Clark (hasn't proven anything yet)

The like list is a lot easier than the dislike list.

Top 5 Favorites:
1) RJ Umberger. Was a favorite of mine before ever we traded for him, and he's only gotten better in my eyes since.
2) Antoine Vermette. Ditto on the "favorite before trade". I'm quite pleased with how he took on the #1 center role and did a bangup job with what skills he has.
3) Kris Russell. Lil' Shake just keeps getting better and better and better and I love watching him do it.
4) Rick Nash. He seems to get an unusual bum rap around here, and so I tend to warm to him and his actions more than usual.
5) Matthieu Garon. What can I say? I have this obsession with backup goaltenders.
Honorable Mentions: Hejda, Voracek, Commodore, Klesla.


Least Favorite:
1) Kristian Huselius. I appreciate him for what he does much more than some here, I think, but yeah, that streakiness drives me mad also.
2) Mike Blunden. Why the hell are we keeping this guy around?
3) Maksim Mayorov. I don't know why. I can't really explain it. I just think the guy is doomed.

No fourth or fifth, but Methot has a tendency to waver back and forth. The only CBJ player I've ever truly hated recently had a "C" on his jersey.

Likes:
Nash (he takes a lot of ***** but he's the face of this franchise, and I like him)
Umberger (OSU! Plus he's competitive as hell and fiery)
Vermette (met him personally, really nice guy and a really good center)
Hejda (no-nonsense shutdown D-man)
Russell (speedy as hell, needs a little more O and D and he'll be a really good one)
Voracek (big, tough, great passer, always looks like he's having fun)


Dislikes:
Mason (the douchey necklace and the bad attitude, he really needs to mature)
Boll (can't pass, can't shoot, can't fight, draws some penalties I suppose)
Methot (can't put my finger on it, but just don't like his game at all)
Blunden (useless)

So is this just for the last season, or all of them?

If just this past season, my favorites:

1. Nash- People say he is lazy etc, but he is still our best player
2. Voracek- I like him... The more experience he gains, the more dominant he will become
3. Brassard- He definitely regressed this past season, but watching highlights, you see that his skill is still there. I think he will have a good season in 10-11.
4. Filatov- He gets lots of heat for acting like a spoiled *****, but I wonder how much was because of what his "advisers" were telling him, and how much is just his personality. This season, we will find out. Either way, even if you don't like him, you must know that he is one of the most talented players to ever be associated with this team. I hope he sticks around and does great things for Columbus.

When I met him, he seemed genuinely nice. He was just super arrogant about his game (he had just gotten back from Las Vegas and winning the Calder). But yeah, that necklace bothers me for some reason. Fleury has the same thing going on.

What was wrong with the way I answered the question. My top 5 CBJ players all wear that jersey. My least favorite CBJ players don't. it's that simple.

Hell I'd go as far to say that on a night to night basis, my top 20 all wear that jersey.

Those that are my least favorite wear other jerseys, like...




and some used to wear this jersey



Even though the players that wear them are the least of my favorites, they are still favorites, and I prefer them to a lot of other players, especially ones that wear these jerseys.

Is that Jan "Cap'n Hook" Hrdina? I.e. the #1 center we'd been looking for??

LOL... Weighty & Blunder showed some offensive skill in the last few games last year. If they could do that all the time, there'd be no question why they're around.

Current/Ex Favs:
#1 TORRES (a complete menace/trainwreck on skates)
#2 LeClaire (just a happy/goofy guy)
#3 Hejda (see #2 - the picture in last years program makes me smile)
#4 Garron (See #2 & #3)

Current/Ex Dislikes:
I'll go with Backman, although he had the original "scared of Hitch" thing going on before everyone else made it cool.

And Commodore. Not living up to the hype at all.

Skraut, in honor of you, I'm getting this jersey next year.



Just gotta find a seamstress to put on the bottom nameplate.

Why yes, yes it is.

(I still think that team could have beaten last year's team)

why the hate for huselius when nash gets a free pass?

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=804396

Looking at this thread you'd thought huselius killed someones dog. Yet he is only 4 points back of Nash and also second on the team in PPG (0.85 vs 0.88) last season.

the big difference is Nash salary cap hit which is 7.8 compared to Juice 4.7

if Nash is such an amazing player with crosby like salary, shouldn't he score more than paltry 67 points?
