Jagr.

Now he is just an overrated prima donna.

Also Brad Stuart. Liked him alot until he forced his way out of Boston, giving the B's a solid -22 in the process. Ass.

Well, "hated" is a little strong, but...

When Alex Oveckin came into the league, I had a terrific opinion of him and was amazed at his talent and spectacular goals like everybody else.

But ever since his dirty hit-from-behind on a defenseless Danny Briere, I've lost a lot of respect for Ovechkin, and now have a more negative opinion of him.

Behavior on the ice? Such as . . .?

All the guy does is score big goals. He doesn't really play dirty, he rarely dives (regardless of what NESN has told Boston fans to believe). He complains to the refs sometimes, but he's the captain - the captain is supposed to be the team's spokesman to the refs.

Curtis Joseph, loved him as a leaf, but never forgave him for leaving (although I am happy he did). We offered him more money than the wings, and he still left.

Alexei Yashin , one word - jerk

Bryan McCabe
, liked him, now not as much since he makes way too much friggen money.

Roloson. He used to be the underdog who seemed to pull through. Now he's just a whining and diving SOB.

Alex Tanguay. When Colorado traded him I wanted to remain a fan of his and follow his career, but ... Everytime the Avs play against the Flames, a new article emerges in the Denver newspapers about how devastated AT was at being traded 'cuz nobody wanted him, nobody wubbed him :'( :'(

- Dion Phaneuf. I liked him as a Rebel, and immediately started to hate him after the Flames drafted him.

- Chris Pronger of course.

- Mike Comrie, but I didn't really like him even when he was an Oiler.

Chris Chelios. Dude swore he'd never be a Red Wing. Ever.

Curtis Joseph. My favorite goalie as a youngun. All of my favorites end up Wings though.

Kyle Calder. Was my favorite Blackhawk, until he refuses to negotiate a long-term deal with the club and wanted out. Can't blame him, but I'd have prefered it if he stayed.

chara, he said last year that all he wanted to do was win a cup and that he doesnt care about the money, but of course that was before he accepted a 7 million dollar deal with a team no one expects to make the playoffs. cant stand when players do that
