Players You Like on Teams You Hate

Saw Schopp's tweet celebrating the Marchand injury and got me thinking and talking with some Bruins fans about players on each others' teams that we actually like.

My big two are Chara, because I find it amusing that he's articulate and intelligent, and Thornton because I respect him as a fighter. Unlike most I don't have much of an opinion on Marchand.

I don't really hate either team (guess I'm supposed to), but I'll go with Giroux and even though it will rile everyone up, Lucic.
Giroux is my favorite player in the league and there's just no one else in the league right now that has the combination of size, skills, and toughness that Lucic has.

Both are nice stories too.
Giroux came from a small town in the middle of nowhere and played A and AA hockey for his whole life, was passed up in the OHL Draft because of his size, then ended up a first round pick in the NHL two years removed from Minor Midget AA.
He tore up the Q, won the President's Trophy and was playoff MVP with a ridiculous 51 points in 19 games that year, and fell just short of winning the Memorial Cup.
Lucic of course had his back condition that caused him to be passed on in the Bantam Draft and to almost give up hockey altogether.
He also played with the Vancouver Spirit for most of his life, which is not a top flight MHA (usually between Tier 2 and 3, which British Columbia uses instead of letter designations).
He was listed by the Vancouver Giants and played Junior A and B before spending two seasons in the WHL, winning the league once and appearing in the Memorial Cup twice (won once and was MVP of the tournament).
He then made the NHL at 19.

Edit: Also forgot Seguin.
We have a lot in common, since we share the exact same birthday and we're both **********.
Must have been something in the water that day.

Giroux and Simmonds are my two favorite players in the NHL. I also like Seguin and Malkin.

Alfie. Pure class.

Max Pax. Always seems dangerous.

Kimmo Timonen. Such a smooth game.

Bergeron. Prototype hockey player.

I hate too many teams so I'll try to keep it division specific...

Theres a ton like: McQuaid (who im certain is bat **** crazy and isnt scared of a thing), krejci, bergeron, greening, JVR, Smith, Max pax, Price

HOWEVER

None compare to my man crush I have on (Y)Emelin. I'd likely give away a 1st round pick and then some to get him on this team. The only thing keeping my love from boiling into a full blown bromance is the fact he throws huge hits but will never ever fight again....but seriously i see what a breath of fresh air Weber has been these past few and then I imagine Emelin on our blueline and I get giddy lol

1. Why follow Schopp?
2. Just when you think he can't be any more of a waste, he celebrates an injury? What a *******.

Bergeron - seems like a good leader, and I just like the way he plays the game
Hartnell - hate playing against him, but I can't help but like him
Alfredsson - gotta respect a class act like him

Patrick Kane. I probably wouldn't like him if he wasn't from Buffalo, but he is, so I do. I'm still hanging onto that dream for 2015-2016.

Stamkos is without a doubt my favorite player in the NHL, I like alot of players around the league, really only dislike a handful but would love if they played for Buffalo.

I'd love Rask to be on our roster. Enroth is not good enough to cover the mistakes our defense makes.
