Who is our whipping boy?

I think this thread could spark some interesting discussion. All of the people on this board (some more than others) use people as scapegoats. But who is this team's whipping boy?

I honestly have to say it is a tie between Michael Frolik and Marcus Kruger. Some people have Frolik love, some people have Kruger love. (Nudge, nudge, Bubba.) Both of these players have bright spots and I think we undervalue them.

Why can't we all just hate on DiDomenico and go home?

Until July 1st, it's easily Johnny Oduya.

It depends, seems like a what have you done for me lately kinda board.

Most likely Hammer, Oduya, Kruger, Frolik. I think the only one that deserves it out of that group is Fro.
We really need more from Keith, Seabs, and Kane. I'm a little worried about Sharp living up to his new contract.

Edit: Also Bolland- this is the year he better step it up or he's got to go, shame though it would be.

Agree with Kitchen being the consensus...but for me it's probably Corey Crawford.

It's Kruger without a doubt.

Bolland was one of the only bright spots in the post season this year. Frolik also.

You want Bolland to step up, tell Q to use him as the second line center. Skill aside, 40+ point seasons are what you get from a third line center in a shut down role.

Hjammer, Frolik, Keith and Kane as HM

I know in the OP you mentioned Frolik and Kruger, but I think there's far more Crawford hate that has been going around lately. That and Kane hate. If you didn't say "player", then I would say most of the hate is at Q, Kitchen, and Bowman.

Management = Bowman
Coaching staff = Kitchen
Players = Kruger at forward, Keith on defense and Crawford in net

There's all the whipping boys.

My early vote, drunken alcoholic party boy who tried to step it up a notch last year but the only thing he catches is the flu every year because he doesnt get enough rest during the seasons b/c he'd rather be drinking and partying.

Even Hossa has gotten a little heat though this year for "disappearing" from some people, and no that's not a reference to his injury.

I think the only person who is not a whipping boy is Toews. Everyone else gets **** on way too much on here.

I never said he didn't disappear, I'm just saying that comment has been made, just to prove that pretty much all players have been used as the whipping boy, except Toews.
