Love thine enemy.

Which player(s) do you hate the team of but find yourself actually liking. If "like" is too friendly a word, replace it with "respect the play of"

Toronto: Lupul

Think he's a dedicated player and I'd love to have him.

To be honest I'm a Canucks fan and there's no one I hate on the Bruins, not even Marchand, I respect him in a way. He does whatever it takes to win for his team, even crossing the line sometimes. Thought during games, he's a ***hole

I don't hate or strongly dislike many players, even on rival teams, though I do take joy in seeing such players get knocked silly, have slumps, get bested by my team, etc.

But for rival players that I do have somewhat of a liking for, as a Pens fan I'd say Hartnell, Pronger (I've loved to "hate" that guy forever though), and if you count the Wings as a rival Datsyuk and a few other Wings since I'm local to Detroit. As a Bruins fan, the only Canadien I can bring myself to like at all is Hal Gill and that's only because he's played for my black & gold teams.

Hawks: Toews, Hossa, Sharp in that order. Bolland is awesome too.

Blues: Pietrangelo, Backes, Halak.

Nashville: Weber, Klein, Rinne

Avs, if they still count: Landy, ROR, Varlamov.

The Caps fan in me likes Malkin, Crosby, Neal in that orded.

Lots of stars/borderline stars. Don't know why

The Oilers kids, except Paajarvi because I hate his face. Hopkins in particular because of the way he sees the game when he's playing.

I grew to respect a lot of the Rangers after watching 24/7. I especially like Callahan. Dude's a warrior.

Nucks: Schneider. Bobby LOUUUUUUUU is growing on me though. He handled his trade talks pretty well all things considered

Wings: Datsyuk obviously. He's my favorite player in the world actually.

*Dont get why and are a "rivalry". One playoff series and one abortion of a regular season game. They play eachother once a season lol.

The only real Washington rival right now is Pittsburgh, so Brooks Orpik.

Sometimes that's all it takes to build a rivalry, is something that's intense, but short, and makes you look forward to the next meeting.

I like Couturier from the Flyers. I had my eye on him when I knew the Devils would be drafting early that year.
