Example being a Flyers fan really liking Sidney Crosby. Any other of examples of this?

I like Lucic. I wonder if any Boston fans like Subban...

Marchand and Lucic...well, I'm actually not sure if Rangers fans hate them, but I presume most do because they are in-your-face players who play on Boston. But I love them.

Hell, who am I kidding, I love pretty much all of the Bruins. And I love their jerseys. There, I said it!

I'm one of the very small percentage of Canuck fans that would take Marchand on his team any day.

I agree with you. Sidney Crosby is probably also my choice, probably going to be a few people's first choice.

When he first came into the league he gained a reputation for being childish. Complaining to the refs and retaliating with a swift kick from underneath or slash at the legs. I guess I over the years he matured a lot from those days. Occasionally you may see him complain now, but more often than not I see him just say a word to the ref and skate away.

I guess even back then I am not shocked he did any of this. From the time he emerged as the next one in his youth days, he was always playing kids 2-5 years older and he was a BIG STAR. They put a target on him at all times and over the seasons I am sure that was his way in protecting himself (retaliating).

And all players complain when calls dont go there way, at least hes really matured from it.

I think many people still live by his old habits.
Me? I realize how much work he puts into his game every day. Its insane and I love it. I am inspired by it

I like Karlsson and Eller, sometimes Subban too, and maybe Price when he's on his game.

I hate PK, but would want him as a Bruin. Does that mean I actually like him?

Lupul and Reimer. Lupul is just amazing. Reimer is an awesome goalie as well. In fact, i don't really hate the leafs as much as other sens fans do.
