I know there have been threads about which team people hate the most but I don't remember seeing a poll...I want to see the results....Which team in the NHL do you despise with every fiber of your being...the team that makes you cringe with displeasure when they win even if it has no bearing on the Habs' situation, you just want them to lose, always!
Right at the moment, purely for the players they put on the ice each night, I hate Ottawa the most too.
But of course the traditional hatreds for Toronto and Boston run much deeper overall. Boston seems kinda plain and harmless these last couple years, so the hate there is at a bit of a low ebb. Toronto has lost Belfour and Domi and it's just not quite the same there either.
Maybe the guys on the ice that I hate most of all these days are the refs?
1-Ottawa: Always hated them since they became good. They always have succes against us.
2-Boston: I've hated them for years!
3-Carolina: We have seen them a few times in the playoffs recently. They stopped our run to the cup last year. I HATE THEM
Carolina surprisingly low as well...I guess Toronto really takes the cake for most of us habs fans ...... Is it just the team or the CBC announcers and fans as well?
For me it's the fans that make me hate the Leafs. Truthfully, when I was younger (I would say til about 1990), I didn't hate the Leafs at all. I didn't like them, but I didn't hate them. I hated Boston, I hated Quebec, but not Toronto.
Then once Toronto got even a little bit successful (remember the Leafs still haven't made a finals appearance since '67, so you can't say they were hugely successful or anything), alot of bandwagon jumpin habs fans came out of the woodwork in Thunder Bay. L.A. King fans became Leaf fans. Edmonton Oiler fans became Leaf fans, Flyers, Islanders, Penguin fans....all became Leaf fans. And, in Thunder Bay, anyways, they for the most part were the most ignorant, stupid fans in town (with a few expections).
This made me a Leaf hater.
Hey look, it's Duffman; the guy in a costume that creates awareness of Duff!
1. Toronto - ALthough they are pretty sucky these days.
2. Carolina - I still laugh when I think of the Carolina players saying how brave Justin Williams was too give Koivu a phone call. WOW what a saint
3. Tampa - Have always wanted to punch LEcavalier in the face. NOt sure why but it would be fun.
