Players You Like on Teams You Hate

I come in peace from Buffalo! Well, Washington state actually, but anyway...

Was reading a tweet from one of our idiot radio guys and talking with a Bruins fan on Twitter about players we like from each others teams. Seemed an interesting topic for discussion on both boards given the recent history, and feel free to have at that guy because most reasonable Buffalo fans hate him.

I get a lot of flak for this, but I like Zdeno Chara a lot. It amuses me quite a bit that he looks like a total caveman, and yet is probably one of the most intelligent and articulate players in the league.

Likewise, I respect Shawn Thornton as a decent fighter and a not awful hockey player. (Certainly better than many enforcers.)

As for Marchand, I'm probably the only guy from Buffalo that doesn't have much of an opinion on him. Sucks to be hurt though.

Teams I hate:

Toronto
Montreal
Vancouver
Carolina
Pittsburgh
Philadelphia
Dallas (the Avery, Ott, Burrish Dallas Stars)


Players I like from those teams:

Eriksson
Ryder
Whitney
Benn
Morrow
Lehtonen
Couturier
Simmonds

Jagr when he was known as Jagorim Jarg.


That's it.



Edit: Forgot I actually like Price. For some reason, I just can't bring myself to hate the guy. I think it was his reverence for Thomas and incredible play in the 2011 playoff series that did it for me.

I find Price strangely entertaining. I refuse to acknowledge what team he plays for though.

Price on the Habs. Solid in net, and seems like a good guy with a great sense of humor. Never a whine from him, unlike the goalies of some of our other rivals. Plus, he's got aboriginal roots and his mom was chief of the Ulkatcho First Nation in British Columbia, which is just...super-cool, in my book.

I also enjoyed the awkward little dance he and Thomas did at mid-ice in that nutty game with the gazillion fights and penalties a couple of seasons ago. It was like, "what are we doing here? I ain't even mad" "Yeah well now that we're here we better show them something" "Allright **** it" (followed by a half-hearted takedown).

Not on them anymore but I always liked Saku Koivu when he was with the Habs.

Jochen Hecht on the Sabres.

I loved it when Price was getting lit up and replaced by Halak but truth be told as a Canadian I can't wait to see him in a Canada Jersey again with gold around his neck.

Pens - Criesby, Derek Engelland
Caps - AO, Brooks Laich
Bolts - MSL (huge fan, most underrated player ever, immense hockey IQ), Stamkos
Flyers - Giroux, Hartnell (be a great Bruin, as a flyer I'd like to see Chara inflict crush related injuries)
Devils - Kovaljerk, Broduer
Sens - Eric Karlsson
Sharks - Clowe, Couture, Murray, Boyle

About it for teams I genuinely hate. I generally dislike anyone who plays the Bruins, so..

Jets - Evander Kane, Bygfluiguyhen
Blues - Backes, Bergland, TJ Oshie (wrecking machine), SOB
Wings - Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall.... Franzen

I could go on forever. Hard not to root for Edmonton, fun watching young talent develop.

Nah. He's an easy guy to hate, it's also just as easy to recognize he's a competitor. Looking like Ronald McDonald on crystal meth doesn't help him. However, huge props for telling Malkin he's the ugliest guy in the NHL.

Use to feel this way but Hartnell's pretty solid piece in my eyes.

For me, this one's pretty easy though, right now it's Gally

You don't know what you're talking about. Halak was on the team first, then he shared half the games with Price.
