Which players in our division will I hate most?

So, as a Wings fan, my team is heading to the Northeast + Florida division of the eastern conference and while I follow the NHL as a whole I have to admit I know a lot more about teams in the old Central division than I do here.

So figured I'd do a little research and maybe write an article for my blog about "the players in our division we as Wings fans are going to grow to hate the most". Hate can be for a lot of reasons, ideally the guy is both very skilled and agitating but really I'm open to suggestions.

Who should I watch out for/research up on? So far I have PK Subban from Montreal and Brad Marchand from Boston.

Thanks

Kaleta seems like kind of a punk That's cool. I know Neil because Wings fans have coveted him for our team off and on the past couple of years. Thanks!

Here's one from each Northeast team.

Marchand
Kaleta
Gallagher
Kadri
Smith

Not too sure about the Florida teams, maybe Crombeen and Gudbranson? Nobody on those teams sticks out as particularly hate-worthy.

Thanks, that's a perfect place to start

Dustin Brown, Ryan Kesler and I got a feeling Baertschi is gonna piss off a lot of Oilers fans

You're going to be dealing with Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Boston. Prepare to hate the fans more than anything.

You will likely come to hate Kadri, especially if his production continues.

Kadri is an interesting choice, multiple Leafs fans I talked to suggested him. I'd have thought it would be Colton Orr because his job is to intimidate people but I'll totally look into Kadri because he keeps coming up from Leafs fans.

Geez... 11 posts and no sign of subban yet?...

Wake up

On a side note, Bergeron and his faceoff skills!

To be fair, I did list Subban in the first post as one of the auto includes; along with Brad Marchand. They're probably not mentioning him because I already know about those two Subban LOVES to taunt people, that alone is gonna make Wings fans hate him lol

Hahah, that was basically my list as well. Think of it as me still tying to fill out the bottom six lines So far I have:

Buffalo - Ott
Leafs - Kadri/Orr
Ottawa - Chris Neil

I'm a little mystified on both of the Florida teams just because I barely ever see them play as a Wings fan.

The Northeast has many characters that are easy to hate:

Marchand
Lucic
Subban
Gallagher
Ott
Kaleta
Neil (even though I kinda like Neil)

Alexei Emelin is gonna piss off alot of Wings players when he gets back from injury. If the Habs sign Maxim Lapierre, you're gonna hate him too if you don't already.

What are you talking about? The players you are mentioning are on teams in the western conference. You do know that detroit is moving to the eastern conference don't you?

The worst for these two between their questionable antics is that both can score on you to get you even more pissed.
