HFB Least Favorite Player Tournament Rd. 1 (S. Doan vs B. Marchand)

Rules: Vote for which player you dislike most. Please keep it civil so that we can keep these going

Polls will be open for 1 day, I will try to do two a day

This is the bracket for anyone interested, the seeding was completely random (I did move a couple players to fix stacked matchups IE: Tootoo vs Marchand in the first round)

Shane Doan





VS



Brad Marchand

Will probably be a blow out.. but I love Marchand

I didn't realize what a dirty player Doan was until I was looking for a Youtube clip for the thread.. He kind of flies under the radar in that department

I'd still love him on my team

I like 'em both. Voted Doan because I like Marchand more for obvious reasons.

I would have voted for both these players for a long time a little bummed they face off in the first round. Probably the toughest matchup for me when looking at the brackets. I think I vote Doan basically because I think he is a dirtbag that gets a pass on it somehow. At least most people dislike Marchand outside of Boston. How Doan has accomplished the free pass by a lot of people other than just loyalty to an organization is beyond me.

seriously I will be the first to admit Marchand dives and it is embarrassing but he isn't close to number one

he is kind of like Kesler in that he REALLY steps his (diving) game up for the playoffs haha

its not even really an issue at all in the regular season with him

Before this thread I thought Doan was pretty widely liked or at least respected (not Iginla or Sakic level, but still a pretty well-liked guy). Guess I was wrong


Edit: looking at the bracket, I also didn't know Staal, Alzner or Brodeur were widely disliked (Brodeur perhaps for the adultery thing, but I thought that actually went over pretty smoothly all things considered)

I had looked through other threads for hated players and Staal was in quite a bit, Brodeur way more than I expected. I can sort of see it since he whines a lot to the refs

I just personally dont like Alzner for the Lucic crybaby thing. If someone came up with a better suggestion I would switch him out

I hate Doan, but most of the reason why is because he is severely overrated. Fringe second liner but treated like a star because of "intangibles", despite being pretty bad defensively and often taking bad penalties.

No you definitely came up with a very inclusive and well-thought out list; way better than I could've come up with.

I'd replace Alzner with Emery or Redden personally. Maybe JMFJ as well? He seems to get a lot of hate around here whenever he is brought up

Johnson and Emery are actually pretty good ones

Ill swap them in somewhere

I feel like Redden is just to irrelevant to matter now haha

I like him but, David Backes maybe?

Also not a big fan of his teammate Chris Stewart but that is more of just a Detroit thing, don't know if the rest of the league doesn't like him. Kind of like I hate Bryan Allen with a passion for hurting Zetterberg twice. But I am pretty sure Backes gets under peoples skin.

Jack Johnson would move the needle with Carolina people or some of the comments he has made about Canada.

Semin is another surprising ommission as a guy that is pretty polarizing. I like him but plenty don't.

Andy Sutton and Matt Carkner also come to mind.

Avery isn't playing anymore he is retired, seeing as he will probably go far he should come down off the list in my opinion.

I like the list thanks for putting in the time, just thought if you were looking for a couple maybe those apply. I actually like a few those guys, but could see some debate on them.
