San Jose is a rival? I don't think the Kings have a true rivalry with any one team. That hopefully changes soon though.

I kind of like watching the Sharks. But, obviously, I want the Kings to win any chance they can get against them.

I don't care for the Flyers though. SHOCKER. I can't stand Pronger or Bryzgalov. (he can be kind of funny though) But, the team I hate the most is probably the Canucks. I would love to see them get to game 7 of the SCF only to lose in OT. Ducks too. (I would rather them just not make the playoffs but draft in the later round)

I want them swept by Chicago. That would be more satisfying.

I'm sad that no one gets my topic I commit internet hara-kiri.

The point of the topic is what NON-RIVAL teams you're rooting against THIS YEAR so that when they tank, they might trade us a particular player....

If we just name who we hate, it will all be rivals like San Jose and Vancouver...

"Vancouver. Hate their fans, hate their team. Any group of players/fans/management that whines as much as they do doesn't deserve success."

Haha. Egg Sac Lee. Oh and of course Detroit and the Rags.

Yeah, but look at the bright side, we turned it into something much more entertaining.

Also hate Vancouver for their goal song.


What team still plays Holiday by Green Day? The ****?


Just another reason not to like them.

Speaking of which, the Ducks have a horrible goal song also.

On a complete and utter off topic side note. Who had the awesome idea at Staples to play those ****ing videos during our goal celebrations?

Hilarious. Kickboxer dance scene to our goal song is amazing.

Try wearing *anything* L.A. Kings around Vancouver.

Ignorant fans seem to run completely amuck in the entire town.

Take away the people and B.C. is a pretty great place in my experience.

Not all of them but allot of them.

Right? My sister and her husband went up there as the first leg of an alaskan cruise, and her husband was wearing a Kings hat and she was saying how when they went to downtown Van they got some pretty snide remarks from a few people. Not a lot but a few.

I was like really?

They are pretty arrogant for having the same amount of Stanley Cups as us.....

I am pretty much a lurker but reading this thread brings up lots of negative feelings about both the Sharks and Cantnucks. I have lived within a 45 minute drive of both cities so have lots of interaction with both teams fans and follow both a bit more than other non-kings teams. The thing is we have been eliminated from the playoffs by both of those teams in recent years. I have met some really cool Sharks fans, my ex-wife and a few freinds for example, and some real dbags. That is no different than any other fanbase though. I also don't particularly hate any of their players.

Nucks on the other hand is a totally different story. The best word that describes how their fans come off to me is entitled. Of course these are my experiences and I am generalizing from that. The fans feel like they deserve to have won the cup every year for the last little while because the team has done well during the regular season. They are flat out irrational when they talk about the team. Huge homers. I understand that fans are biased in favor of the team they follow but being able to respect what other teams have going for them. I also despise Burrows and feel like there is more embelishment on that team than others.

As far as the original topic of the thread.

Islanaders: Can we please have Moulson back and while we're at it can you throw in Okposo.

The Toronto Maple Leafs because they are not the centre of the friggin universe even though the Canadian media tries to make them into that for some damn reason. I love it when they miss the playoffs because we get to watch a team other than the Leafs in the playoffs.

A very far away second is the Rangers. Any team that has Avery and Tortorella on it I don't like but I have never really liked the Rangers. Likely a spill over from the late 90's early 2000's when they were spending gobs of money of UFA after UFA each year. they still do that, but not as bad.

And yes, like virtually everyone here, I do not like the Canucks or the Ducks. The Ducks I just hate, and having Corey Perry makes it even worse. The Nucks, I think it's more their fans. I have never seen a fanbase feel so entitled to be considered one of the best in the league while having done absolutely nothing outside of three cup appearances than Nucklehead fans. Well, outside of Leafs fans I guess.

There are a few other teams I don't like, but I can stomach them winning, like the Devils and Islanders.

Agreed. And it's not just LA Kings gear. Try a Blackhawks jersey or Detroit. Or any team they've had even the remotest form of a rivalry with in the past 30 years. Those fans hold onto a grudge like it's gold nugget.
