Carcillo doesn't bring his linemates down. Some guys can utterly destroy a line they are on but he isn't so bad as to do that. You are still playing 5v5 with Carcillo as opposed to 4v5.

Avery is good offensively and even better in the make-you-hate-me category. The off-ice stuff is meh. You don't like him as a person, but he is still a fine hockey player. He has good career stats for his role. Just think how pissed a team must be when Avery scores. He could have been a fulltime NHLer without his antics - which is more than you can say for a lot of guys. Even Burrows broke into the league by being a pest but he is slowly moving away from it as poeple realize the Sedin twins are good at bouncing pucks off his stick into the goal (I kid).

Oh yeah - add Bertuzzi to my list.

See, I consider that a basic requirement, not a source of redemption.

I don't care about his ability as a hockey player. He's a jackass through and through, and therefore I don't want him.

I wasn't around for the bulk of Claude Lemieux's career, but nothing I've read about him makes him look reasonable in my eyes either, playoff record and Stanley Cups be damned. I like the fact that, with rare exceptions, most NHL players are decent folk. Beats having to see thugball players charging into the stands, or watching the Cincinnati Arrest Of The Week.

I cant stand Cody Franson, but there are people on here that love him for his great positioning (aka him being so slow hes always in the back and gets lucky) they also say he has a great shot (no he doesnt please stop trying to make him a younger weber its not going to happen) He sucks and is not worth the money we are paying
him. Atleast Ellis who is half his size can block a shot and use his body and plays like a true offensive Dman should!

We aren't exactly paying the kid much. I'm honestly not sure how that can be an issue with anyone. His one way status I can see being a point of contention, but not after a single preseason game.

im also going off of all last season when he was here. He played last night like he already has a spot. Almost all the rookies last night played better than he did any last year.

Wow, a complement to Ellis, saving for proof next time you decide you hate him.

While I agree with you on his skating and his defensive play in general, Franson does have a great shot.

God loves the gingers and so should you.

I don't hate Franson but he did look bad last night. I think the idea was to throw the "rookies" (Parent and Franson aren't technically rookies, I know) into the water and see if they would sink or swim and also to see which ones stepped up and took hold of the situation. Parent was that person for me.

I will say i was impressed by Ellis last night, he had great positioning last night and even when hes a little out of place he knows how to use his stick to get in the way. Cody just seems to play dumb.

Sounds like the folks in Montreal that only follow the HABS when they win and destroy things when they do not.

Since there are no Jackets on this list (just a few references to the team), I'll list the Jackets players I hated, even though they were on my team.

Jan "Have another hook" Hrdina
Nikolia "We talkin about practice" Zherdev
Adam "What airplane" Foote
Jason "Stone Hands" Chimera
Mike "The Human Pylon" Commodore
Jared "Oops, missed another check" Boll

Non-Jackets:

Chris Pronger
Chris Pronger's Elbows
Alex Burrows (diving? really?)
Jordan Tootoo


Retired:

Todd Marchment...until the day I die.
Claude "The Turtle" Lemieux

May have at some point had skates on and a stick in his hand, thus making him a "player":

Gary Bettman

Love it Bettman gets my vote just simply because he is associated with the NHL lol.

Mike Ribiero

He was another one I hated lost all respect for him after he hit the ice like he was shot in the playoffs against Boston that was horrible.

Burrows, Seabrook, and Jackman. Consistently dirty hits. Loathe them. Also loathe the Canucks and Sharks. Don't give me the better faster bigger argument. They're just dirty. That's my 7 cents.

Pronger
Burrows
Avery

Columbus Blue Jackets (anyone associated with them - players, coaches, fans)

Basically any player that's not a Nashville Predators player

NHL fan here. Matt Cooke is a giant piece of reeking ****.

I hope he gets what he gave Savard, but I hope Cooke never walks again afterward. Jeez, Savard suffering from: dizziness, nausea, headaches, fatigue and depression, and he's unable to play. All because of a cheap, gutless, maggot named Matt Cooke and his dirty blind sided head hunting.

I hate Matt Cooke.

You're entitled to your opinion, but wishing a guy will never walk again is a bit extreme.

I had no idea you guys hated us so much.

I guess having guys like Burrows and Kesler on your team does that, though.
