What 8 teams would you not accept a trade to?

Just for a bit of fun, if you had a NMC that allowed you to supply a list of 8 teams that you would not accept a trade to, which 8 would you pick and why? For this assume you are on the Sabres.
Mine are:

1. Carolina- because I hate them
2. Nashville- screw country music
3. Columbus- no way I'm living in Ohio
4. New Jersey- cause then I'd have to drive in New Jersey
5. Philadelphia- I could not in good conscience play for the Flyers
6. Boston- cause if I played for Boston I'd hate myself
7. Dallas- no way I'm living in Texas
8. Winnipeg- cause I can't think of a better #8

(if fans of other teams see this, it's all in good fun! I'm sure you all would have Buffalo #1 anyways)

If I was Pominville I know teams like Colorado, Calgary, and florida werent asking for me so I wouldnt list them on my no trade to list.

I would look at the top 12 teams out there and of those are there teams that I would not want to go to given who is on the team, coaches, system. and other factors.

Pominville would not block a deal to the Islanders or tampa Bay because he likely gets paired with their top line center and thus he will get points which then will increase is contract value when he is a free agent.

If I'm Pominville...

1. Florida
2. Phoenix
3. Calgary

I'd go anywhere else.

No order...

Montreal - the French factor
Ottawa - more boring than Buffalo
Boston - I'd kill somebody
Winnipeg - isolated
Edmonton - very isolated
Calgary - I'm not a cowboy
Phoenix - hot, dry, border related crime
Columbus - more boring than Ottawa

1. Boston because the city and everything about it sucks especially their sports teams
2. Philthy pretty much the same reason as #1, just not as bad
3. Pittsburgh hate rust towns
4. Buffalo taxes, lack of nightlife etc
5. Winnipeg hate blue balls and my nether regions would freeze and drop off there
6. Edmonton see #5
7. NJ thought of being defined by my exit number would suck
8. NYR taxes, taxes, taxes
9. NYI see #8
10. Cakalacky NASCAR and basketball are the be all end all and their BBQ pales in comparison to Texas

I couldn't stop at just 8...I could of did 9 with tossing the two NY teams together

1. Carolina - Same as above.
2. Phoenix - Uncertain future
3. Dallas - No desire to live in Texas and screw Brett Hull.
4. Boston - Love the town, hate the team.
6. NY Islanders - Terrible ownership
7. Calgary - They're a mess.
8. Montreal - I don't speak French. Drama.

Montreal - no hablo French

I would list whatever 8 teams didn't want a 42 year old out of shape pest type winger/dman with a weak shot currently sidelined with a concussion after getting wiped out by an 11year old girl. Although I'm guessing the list would be longer than 8

I've always loved doing things the hard way. Making a winner is 100x more fun/exciting than being traded to one

1) Pittsburgh -- I'd rather try my luck playing against the best than with the best
2) New York Rangers -- Hate the team, hate the city
3) Boston Bruins -- See above
4) Detroit -- Easymode
5) Vancouver -- I can't stand the roster and they've been good for too long
6) Philadelphia -- I lived in Philly once and have no desire to ever do it again

Phoenix-They suck, and I can't take that weather
Philly-Just no.
Pittsburgh-Same as Philly.
Columbus-They suck, and I go to school in Ohio. Terrible weather, limited job opportunities. No thanks.
Winnipeg-Too cold. Good hockey atmosphere though.
NYR-Too crazy of a lifestyle
Toronto-Media and they generally haven't been good lately.
Florida-Same as Phoenix

NYI was tops on my list, but now that they'll be in Brooklyn, they rocketed to the other end.

Phoenix
Florida
Dallas
Calgary
Denver


Honestly I don't have anything against the rest

Remember nyi will in Brooklyn at Barclays center. That mixed with the young talent they wouldn't be in my list even if it had to be 15 teams.
