I'll name all the players I don't hate on my most hated teams...
Rangers: Marc Staal, Henrik Lundqvist.
Penguins: James Neal
Bruins: Milan Lucic (used to hate him until his I read his quite level headed comments towards the lockout and how it affects the fans)
Canadiens: Max Paccioretty
I'd have to say that my favorite of all those would probably be Lundqvist. He seems like a really good guy, and though I hate him when he plays the flyers, I respect him a lot and I think he's the best goaltender in the world.
Jesus, this thread reads like a group therapy for hockey fans traumatized by the lockout and hockey withdrawal.
Next thing you know, we will all be hugging...
Bruins: Lucic. I hate his guts when he plays against us, but you cannot fault him for not doing his job, and being the very best in the NHL at it: skill hockey player who doubles as an intimidator.
Philadelphia: Giroux. FFS, I started to LIKE the Flyers when he became their centrepiece. Giroux is to me the paragon of what a hockey players should aim to achieve in term of attitude, ethics and behaviour. Hardly a chipper, but he won't hesitate to stand up to players 4 inches taller than him if they start ****.
Favourite team is the Oilers ill just do one for each divisional team.
Canucks - Hamhuis and Edler. I hate Burrows lapierre bieksa etc way to much to be able to say anything else lol
Flames - Iginla for sure, have to respect a guy like him he's accomplished a lot. The hockey fan in me almost wishes he won the cup in 04 but then the Oilers fan in me realizes that should never happen :p
Wild - Parise (old favourite player) Suter, Koivu, Gilbert, Brodziak tbh I really do like your guys team and I love the prospects you guys have as well, hopefully we can get a good rivalry going in the coming seasons!
