Players that you hate-but would take on your team in a heartbeat.

the thread on Players that you hate got me thonking about this topic. Who are 3 players that you hate but if they came to your team would be favorites.

Todd Bertuzzi- I think he is a spot picking POS at times but if he was wearing the Blues sweater that would quickly change he is a very effective player.

Ed Belfour- I can remember raining chants of "Belfour' down on him as well as things two obsene to write here when he plyed for the Hawks, Stars and to a lesser exstent the Leafs. I dont think however there are two many Blues fans who wouldnt do an about face if he tended goal for us.

Chris Chelios-Another Player who when he wore the Hawks and Wings Jersey the mere site of him in warmups would get the blood up. That being said he is a Great D-man who I think any Blues fan would take.

Hon Mention to Jeremy Roenick and Al Secord who felt plenty of heat from Blues fans but I would take on any team.

I'd take Darcy Tucker on my team. An agitator that can score 20 goals.

I would take Tucker as well, Sticking with role players I would take Tie Domi, Darren McCarty or Bryan Marchment.

Leetch-nyi killer.has come up with so many big goals against the isles.

Tkachuk???-blew off the isles when they wanted to trade for him.

Bertuzzi-under a lot of pressure by the nyi+fans.He didn't reach his potential until he'd left LI.

I agree with 2 out of your three 100%. I would throw Scott Stevens in there.

There's really only a handful of players that I dislike, and generally it's for off-ice stuff (holdouts) rather than playing dirty. But of the players I've never particularly cheered for:

- Eric Lindros - Even though he seems a shadow of his former self, I'd love to have him on the team.

- John LeClair - Devils have been missing a PP horse 5-10 feet from the net since Arnott/Holik departed. Although not worth 9 mil a year.....

- Alexei Kovalev - Uber talented, but I'd be weary of tossing long term big bucks his way. Elias-Gomez-Kovalev? Can we say delicious?

- Chris Drury - Only because ESPN subjected me to 2+ years of those "he pitched in the Little League World Series" clips....and because he killed the Devils and Kings (my local team) in the playoffs.

- Bryan McCabe - I think I dislike the jersey he's currently wearing more than I dislike the player.

- Jamie Langenbrunner / Joe Nieuwendyk - Oh wait, Lou already did that.

Habs already had him and I wouldn't want him back.

Ian Laperriere would be one guy I'd like. Matthew Barnaby is another. Mind you these are guys I just dislike.

I really don't hate anyone in the league for playing tough or being an agitator. My hatred is reserved for floaters and guys who make lazy plays because they aren't willing to take two extra strides, guys who stickcheck instead of skating or who won't take a hit to make a play. As a result there isn't a single one of them I'd want on my team.

As much as it pains me to say this, I'd go with Darcy Tucker.
Such a crybaby, but unlike alot of other agitators, he produces.

I think I'd also take Ville Neimenin (I know I spelled his last name wrong)

It is still hard for me to look at Chelios in a Wings sweater, despite how he has helped the team. I think that the players that get under my skin the most, are also ones that I associate strongly with one team. Someone already named Foote, who is a terrific defenseman, but he's an Avalanche! It just wouldn't right for him to wear the Winged Wheel (plus, we've been screwed by acquiring an Avs defenseman before). Therefore, I don't think that I can really name any player that I strongly dislike that I would take on my team.

Definitely Joe Thornton. I drool at the prospect of him and Koivu playing 1st and 2nd line.

Wouldn't anyone here want Kasparaitis on their team? To watch him slam some opponents cranium into the glass?
