Scott Niedermeyer. I always thought he was an intelligent player but his incident at
the 2004 World Championships in Prague proved me wrong. After the end of the 2nd
period, he jumped on Jágr from behind, started beating him (together with a few
other Canadian players). Jágr was just skating off the ice, heading to the locker room, so he couldn't expect anything. I can't understand this guy has ever won
a Lady Byng Trophy.

Pronger, for leaving Edmonton. I thought I;d follow him to the Ducks but just haven't been able to get into them yet. Feels like it'll never be the same.

Roy and Kovalev.

Started out loving Roy, as every Habs fan did, then his ego (and idiot management) sent him packing. I actually started liking him again, so much so that I was cheering him on during his second Cup run with the Avs. But since he's retired it seems he frequently makes headlines for acting like an idiot.

Kovalev... He just pisses me off now.

I'll add in a second vote for Briere. I hadn't paid much attention to him early in his career (me and a bunch of GMs), but when I took notice I enjoyed his style of play. But lately his behavior on ice has started to turn me off.

Roloson. At some point during his move from the Wild to the Oilers he broke all his gear and hired an acting coach.

Shocked no one's said Theo yet...

Anyway, for me, I'd say Jan Bulis. I loved him as a 3rd liner with the Habs... and then he started talking... now I'm happy he's doing horribly.

Keith Primeau...
I really liked him when he was with Detroit. He played a physical, checking center role and he is really good in that facet.

When he came to carolina (hartford at the time) the organization groomed him to be a #1 center and he (and/or his agent) started getting BIG-HEADED about it.

The way he left the Canes is just a crock - he's turned out to be a big baby and he was one of the most overrated players in the league. I wish he was still playing so that all Flyers fans could see what a fluke his 04 playoff success was (a la Pisani...Druce and those one run performers before him).

Bertuzzi. He has an incredibly lazy work ethic and being a "professional" he should bounce back from adversity instead of wallowing in it.

Sundin.

Til a couple of years ago, never noticed how many punches to the backs of peoples heads he throws per game.
Started noticing then, and man... Totally changed my opinion about him as stand up guy.

Michael Peca- I respected him as our (BUF) captain but then he just abandoned the team, held out and became a major whiner.

The first few times I saw Mike Ribeiro play I thought he had a bunch of skill and would get better as he got older. Then I found out how much of a girl and a homo he is.

The 9 games he played last season he had 8 points.

Bobby Holik, I was excited to see him come to the Rangers,when he got to MSG I felt like he didnt do enough to deserve his paycheck. Plus he just seems like an arrogant jerk

I agree, on top of that I hate how a lot of people use what he says as a guideline to be right over wrong. Just because he's the great one doesn't mean he's the smartest hockey guy around.
