Claude Lemieux wins on pure definition of "pest", but Ulf was much more hatable because of the rampant cheapshots.

Tikkanen was good too, I read some funny stories about him inciting brawls, like kissing one of the other players in the middle of a scrum with the sole intention of starting a fight.

Bryan "Bugsy" Watson was the only player to get Bobby Hull to WANT to fight him!

"The Rat" was a weiner, too! HATED the guy!

Barnaby was a great pest, but i don't know if one of the best of all time, but i know if i'm fighting someone and they're laughing and screaming like a maniac it'd annoy the hell out of me atleast

Kirk Maltby has to be one of the most hated player in the league at the moment and all-time he's gotta be right up there. The fact that he never drops his gloves has to be even more frustrating for opponents.

Steve Kasper was a really good defensive forward in his Bruins' days.

"Tik, always with a stupid expression on his face, is constantly stirring up the pot."

"The size of the opponent is of no concern: he will hurl his body at the biggest guy on the ice. Tikkanen is in your face -- and also in your armpit or crawling up your back. He is as annoying as a mosquito and almost impossible to swat, since he is a master at the hit and run."

"One of the funniest sights in hockey is Tikkanen's wounded-victim look after he has goaded an opponent into taking a bad penalty. He often starts a war that one of his teammates ends up fighting. Tikkanen yaps constantly, which really drives his opponents nuts because he speaks some otherworldly gibberish, known as 'Tikkanese' that not even other Finns can translate."

Tikkanen Quotes

'On playing in Anaheim: "I hate those freaking horns that sound like ducks. Its so aggravating to hear duck-sounds everytime we get the puck... I hate ducks."

On Joe Louis Arena in Detroit: "You have to take long showers after the games to get rid of that smell of octopus. It smells everywhere in the Joe Louis Arena, and it's definetely not a nice smell. Otherwise you might stink the whole week..."

On being traded from New Jersey:
"I was happy to get out from New Jersey. Who wants to play on swamp?"

"How many Cups you've got?"
- Tik's favorite question

"I've never seen him shut up. He can't speak Finnish, Swedish or English, but where-ever he goes he makes himself clear and is popular everywhere. Esa is king, everywhere." - Jere Lehtinen, Dallas Stars '

Doug Risebrough did that job for those great Canadien teams. Both him and Lambert made a habit of getting under the opposition's skin.

Esa Tikkanen
Kirk Maltby
Claude Lemeiux

Ulf Samulesson and Darius Kasparitis were known more for cheap shots. But they were great to have on your team

Theo Fleury although highly skilled was still a pest in my book.
Holmstrom can be quite pest like but nothing like Lemieux or Linesman.
Future pests include Avery (as big a loud mouth as Barnaby) and Tootoo.
