More hated team in Canada, Toronto or Vancouver?

I read a lot of jokes about the Leafs here like, when someone asks, "How does a player become overrated?" Then someone would answer, "When he plays for the Leafs." So that makes me think no one outside of Toronto likes the Maple Leafs. But then I always hear that everyone outside of BC hates the Canucks.

I hate Toronto a lot, and actually don't mind Vancouver.

So, Toronto.

Toronto has been pretty irrelevant the last few years so its def Vancouver.

Vancouver cause they have just as big an annoying fan base except they can actually win games.

Living in Ontario it's Toronto without a doubt. I have no reason to hate on Vancouver.

People hate the Toronto Maple Leafs organization. People don't really hate the players or the team. (at least this group)

People hate this iteration of the Vancouver Canucks, but I'm not sure if they really hate the organization.

I don't really like Vancouver.

I feel like the last five years has purged a lot of stupidity from the Toronto fanbase. A lot of their fans have developed a philosophical intelligent attitude since then.

So Vancouver. For now...

Haha tough choice!

Toronto I have to hate because it's annoying to hear about them all the time. But they've been so unsuccessful that it hasn't been as much fun lately.

Have to pick Vancouver. I honestly had a good time cheering against them in their run in 2011. Even sports reporters in Edmonton started to hate them. I watched a lot of those playoffs and it's the first time i've actually cheered, got out of my seat, etc. Cheering for a team that wasn't my own.

May have been because I forgot what playoff hockey is like with my own team.

True aside from Kessel no one else really gets much hate, but on the Canucks you've got, the Sedins, Bieksa, and an HF favorite Roberto Choke-ongo

Mostly this, especially in Oct-Nov when all their fans come out and claim they'll be in the playoffs that year.

If the Leafs were any good it would be them. How can you hate a team that never makes the playoffs?

I never really hated the Leafs.
I hate their fans, but not the team.

For Vancouver, I hate both.

Do people really hate on Bieksa? I was under the impression he was one of the more respected Canucks, like Hamhuis or Higgins.
