Bryan Berard- Steroids. Back problems. Snipped Columbus after leaving when they were the only org. that would give him a 2 year deal.
Anson Carter - Should not be on the list. He contributed the greatest Holiday Music Album of all time and was better than Zherdev.
Jan Hrdina- Hooking.
Mike Todd must be added. His presence as arena host solidifies the amateur hour impression of our arena entertainment.

No high def super scoreboard can compensate for his no-talent yuckin' it up delivery night in and night out. Seriously, is that rube the best CBus has to offer?

Thanks for lobbing one to me, Matthew.

Jeff Carter wins this race in a photo finish, appropriate seeing his friend Kevin Harvick won the Daytona 500 in a photo finish. He was traded from Philadelphia (admittedly, where he wanted to be), but pouted the whole time he was in Columbus and really didn't give a crap. Instead of pissing and moaning, try to one-up the Flyers by making your new team (Columbus) better.

Adam Foote's Ocean's Eleven-style exodus gets him a very close second. Ship equipment to Calgary to be received by the Avs, charter a private jet to get you there ASAP, but try to haggle just a little while longer for that $500k that would convince you to stick around and tell the media how sad you are to be traded when it's over to the only team of 29 others you'll waive your NTC for. I was tickled to see his last season result in a 15th place finish in the West.

I'm legitimately torn on Rick Nash. He's got the skill and probably deserves a shot at winning, which the front office failed at helping him with miserably, but it does leave a bit of "quitter" image tarnishment since he'd wanted out for months. His "I think I should be traded if it helps the team get better" was an attempt to be nice, but came across as the only way a notably shy, reserved millionaire could imitate Denis Lemieux in "Slap Shot" saying "TRADE ME RIGHT F-ING NOW".

Didn't it later come out that Roloson was snubbed by MacLean, who didn't think he was NHL-ready?

Let's make a top 5 most hated CBJ people in CBJ history. Post here to add more candidates. This will close tomorrow at 2 PM EST and the first poll will open then.

Candidates so far that will go to the polls:

Jeff Carter
Adam Foote
Doug Maclean
Nikita Filatov
Nikolai Zherdev
Krzsystof Oliwa
Jan Hrdina
Bryan Berard
Rick Nash (I had to include this for fun)
Christian Backman
Anson Carter
Aaron Johnson
Stefan Legin
Alex Svitov
Scott Howson
Mike Priest
Boomer
Jeff Rimer
Bill Davidage
1. Oliwa--there are certain things outside of hockey that make this so.
2. Foote--yes, we'll never know the full story, but his actions even after his plane ride justify this.
3. Carter--guy was a total jerk to fans. I get he wasn't happy here, but that wasn't any of our problems.

Can I join in on the Carter hate?! lol. Dude was a ******, and dogged it in [hilly too. Its a damn shame he got to ride to a cup in LA, especially since his useless ass missed that open net in game 6. Then he **** all over the Jackets. Wasnt cool. Further proved my point that hes an ass.

1. Ole Kristian Tollefsen - he brought the scourge named Wolfy to this board.
2. Hitchcock - oh Lord, he brought Willien/ Hashmarks here.

...whoever is in charge of concession stand productivity / speed. If people are waiting in line to give me money, I am finding a faster way to take it.

...whoever is in charge of the hot water heater setting in the men's bathroom behind 119 120.

...whoever it is that will not tell wiz and dubinsky to do something other than what they do with their hair during pregame warmups

...the person in charge of the timing of the cannon firing and the timing of the boom compared to the firing (or lack thereof)

My pleasure. Maybe we can start a group and launch a protest to get him fired.

It may take a few months to get Todd fired, but what we really need is a lot of press in the house when we launch. The new GM press conference seems ideal, a perfect arena to voice our position. Gotta get our message out, after all. Plenty of press/major hockey media in attendance for an announcement that big, we can just piggyback our unrelated cause to all the hubbub.

How about getting tees printed "F.O.C.H." Fire Our Corny Host?

I like the sound of this...

Me either....

As for the general fan base Jeff Carter would win the prize.. Foote second... they got the most Dispatch time for being ****** bags; Zherdev and Filatov would be on the media inspired list too.

I'm thinking there needs to be three candidates: Jeff Carter, Adam Foote, and F.A.N.S..

At any rate, still laughing out loud at that one

Priest. No one, other than MacLean, has done more harm to this franchise.

Why hate?

Carter was blindsided by his lying GM.

Howson asked Foote to take a pay cut at the trade deadline, then fired Ken Hitchcock.

I could go on.
