Theo Fleury...Basically spent mid to late teens idolizing the guy, due to his tiny size, and then magnificent play. After he was traded, I still liked him, then he started behaving, to put it mildly, like a complete idiot.
Sean Avery....liked him because he was the chippy little guy on the Red Wings. After he left the Wings, without the vetran Wings like Stevie and Nik to keep him in place, boy did he get mouthy
Wayne Gretzky....Hated him as an Oiler, briefly started liking him as a King, then started hating him again. (Shut up, I was just a kid, okay?)Still don' t really care for him now
Sergei Fedorov.....loved him, then he left the Wings, and boy was I angry. Have now gotten over it, realized that was something that actually turned out not all that badly in retrospect, and don't really mind him, in fact would welcome him back at right price.Heck, would take him on the Caps(my other favorite team) as well....they ould use a good passing center, and have cap space.
Messier. I initially thought he was a great, tough leader. I liked him more than Yzerman. Then I realized half of the Messier personality is a show. His attempted coup of the Rangers GM position confirmed his decline for me.
Jagr - i used to completely admire the guy, he played for the pens for 11 season, and for most of those he was a happy intense player, won art ross trophy's year in and year out, a couple of harts, and took us to the playoffs......then his big head got to him and all he thought about was money, he just left this city on the wrong note, and i cant seem to like him anymore because of that.
Briere at the end of last season saying how he wanted to keep the core of the team together to have another stab at the cup, then asks for $5m at arbitration, turning down multi-year $4.5m deals...Luckily hes earning his paycheck. At the time I was fairly mad.
Sean Avery. Back when there was a ton of Numminen to Detroit talkes, I hoped Avery would be part of the return to Phoenix. If I recall correctly, I was hoping for either Zetterberg or Datsyuk, or Avery + Kopecky + picks.
This poster should not be taken seriously under any circumstances.
Hasek, he was my favorite player, loved he was on the Sens, then his pesky groin started acting up. I don't hate him... I just don't look at him the same way anymore even though I don't doubt he was injured during the playoffs... In fact I hate he's not on the team still and we got Gerber... COME BACK TO ME HASEK!!!
Sidney Crosby, was excited to see a talent like him play in the league. But once he started getting the gretzky treatment from the refs, ya know where they start calling 2 minutes for being near Sidney Crosby when he falls.
I never really liked Brodeur but watching him own the flyers for the past decade makes me wish he would go play goalie on the turnpike.
