VAN - Don't like much of their team and they have one of the worst fanbases I know of.

PHI - A stupidly-run organization, historically and to-date. And they also have a horrible fanbase.
Besides Boston and Detroit, isn't Philly the best American franchise of the last 40 years?

Umm no...not even close.

Off the top of my head.

New Jersey, Colorado, NY Islanders, New York Rangers, and Pittsburgh all have more impressive resume's over the past 40 years.

That's a shocker.
I don't hate them myself, but they are a polarizing organization, so I can see a little hate. While they may be tied for 4th on the list, they really aren't close to the "big 3."

By what measure? Certainly not by Stanley Cups. They are amidst a 36-year drought. They're usually in the playoffs, and often do well, but Clarke could never quite get it done, and I think that was largely due to a number of poor decisions on his part and failing to find the proper chemistry/balance/whatever you want to call it for his roster. He was ultimately a failure as a GM. And I'm not sure Holmgren doesn't have much of the same philosophy.

Montreal, they have booed the USA national anthem too much, really distasteful in my opinion

The Leafs are still our number 1 rival in my opinion I remember when I first started watching hockey in the 80's and I still hate them above all other teams.

Dallas Stars, I realize they are the lone star state but I hate that the NHL didn't protect the North Stars name and jersey which is one of my favorites.

Contrary to many here I like the Habs, but I can understand the hate regarding the fans.

Anyway, my picks are Leafs, Sharks, Pens, Caps and Bruins.

And yet, none really come close to my hate of the Hawks...

very interesting to see vancouver so high there. we havent played them very much in the playoffs, so it got me wondering what the main factor behind our dislike would be.

is it the sisters or the riots? both?

The sisters. Two girls: no cup.

Just goes to show what huge ********** Kesler and Burrows are. Bieksa is a turd too but you can at least say he's tough. I find Lapierre comical, but lots of people seem to dislike him.

And then their fans are annoying as **** too.

Don't know why anyone would dislike them due to the Sedins though. They don't play like punks, and are probably still tougher than a good number of our forwards as utterly embarrassing as that is...

Vancouver - Too many gutless players
SJ - I used to like the Sharks, but I've never liked Thornton much and Setoguchi's diving really bugged me
Phx - Relocate, would ya?
Dallas - Used to hate these guys when they were top notch. Same with Colorado. But something about the intense hatred for Colorado turned into something resembling nostalgic admiration. Dallas? Nope. I just don't like this team.
LA Kings - Haven't liked them since they abandoned to old purple and gold

On the Fence:
Pittsburgh - Can't stand Crosby, but the Penguins were one of my favorites for years.

Dallas was awful back in the late 90's.

Ludwig, Hatcher, Skrudland, Marshall, Carbonneau, Keane, Reid, Verbeek, Belfour.....so many *******s

Still can't believe Keczmer didn't get his ass beat that night he cheap-shotted Yzerman.
