The worst for these two between their questionable antics is that both can score on you to get you even more pissed.
Exactly. That's exactly what I'm looking for. I know as a Wings' fan the thing that drove me nuts about Claude Lemieux was always that not only was he a chippy, dirty player who tried to kill poor Chris Draper but he was a threat to score constantly.
Everyone knows the goons, it's the guys who can beat you in the box or in the blue ice that drive you mental.
Kadri is an interesting choice, multiple Leafs fans I talked to suggested him. I'd have thought it would be Colton Orr because his job is to intimidate people but I'll totally look into Kadri because he keeps coming up from Leafs fans.
orr is fairly useless as a player. You're going to laugh at him more than hate him.
after a few playoff rounds against some of the NE teams i hope to answer this.
as far as fans go i actually like boston and ottawa fans. leafs fans are alright but we (rangers and leafs) tend to argue a bit when it comes to who will sign the big UFA and unfortunately we usually win . i hate everything about the habs. tampa and florida are cool. i am indifferent towards the sabres.
players is a whole different story.
sens-neil is classy but a piece of **** on the ice and one of the worst pests to play against.
sabres-kaletta is a total piece of crap
leafs-phaneuf. seems like he is always charging when he hits.
habs-subban and pacioretty
boston-i hate lucic but i respect players like him. marchand is a *****. i cant stand that rat. krug...kid destroyed us it was embarrassing.
tampa-lecavalier but hes gone, the rest of the team is alright. stamkos is my favorite almost ranger.
florida-i like them a lot. huberdeau is a stud and markstrom is going to be good.
So, as a Wings fan, my team is heading to the Northeast + Florida division of the eastern conference and while I follow the NHL as a whole I have to admit I know a lot more about teams in the old Central division than I do here.
So figured I'd do a little research and maybe write an article for my blog about "the players in our division we as Wings fans are going to grow to hate the most". Hate can be for a lot of reasons, ideally the guy is both very skilled and agitating but really I'm open to suggestions.
Who should I watch out for/research up on? So far I have PK Subban from Montreal and Brad Marchand from Boston.
LoL... you would take Subban or Marchand in your team without hesitating! Stnaley Cup >>>>> Respect
Oh, no question fwiw: that's exactly the kind of player I'm looking for in this discussion and you guys seem to have a bunch.
This division could get REALLY nasty. And for sure I'd snap take 2/3 of the guys on this list for the Wings. We haven't had a real jerk with us since DMac; Tuzz just doesn't count, he's toothless since he almost killed that Moore kid.
Edit: also, that .gif is awesome NyQuil. Smith appears to be enjoying himself, look at that smile! (nice Sneakers reference too).

Reason: Because I can't tell Chris Neil and Zack Smith Apart
Subban for obvious reasons
Pacs for diving and always complaining, plays like a PWF but wont answer the bell.. ever
Phaneuf for his charging and constant *****ing
Kadri because hes good and physical
Kaleta is a POS
Emelin because hes a POS and hides behind his broken face
