Here's a link to the results. Its an extensive poll covering many interesting topics. It is the source for Sean Avery being the most hated man on skates

3 votes for Jagr? He had a weak season, but that bad? Only one more than Forsberg who was injured and only two more than those other clowns??!!

Does anyone remember when we got Anson Carter a few years back at the deadline and they interviewed him and he was recapping how he was told of the trade and he said something like; 'Kevin called me up and told me about the trade and said 'you were traded to New York' and my first thought was please don't let it be the Islanders'

Hilarious. Would be amazing if someone found a link for that.

By the way, did anyone notice this?

Who is the most hated player in the NHL?
1) Sean Avery (168) 66.4%
2) Jordin Tootoo (14) 5.5%
3) Darcy Tucker (9) 3.5%
4) Jarkko Ruutu (8) 3.1%
5) Marc Savard (7) 2.7%
6) Chris Neil (6) 2.3%
7) Sidney Crosby (5) 1.9%
8) Donald Brashear and Matt Cooke (4) 1.5%
9) Matthew Barnaby, Jason Blake, Zdeno Chara, Ben Eager, Steve Ott and Brendan Shanahan (2) 0.79%
10) Derek Boogaard, Dany Heatley, Ryan Hollweg, Sean Hill, Cam Janssen, Paul Kariya, Ryan Kesler, Kirk Maltby, Dominic Moore, Michael Peca, Dion Phaneuf, Chris Pronger, Maxime Talbot, Raffi Torres, Ryan Whitney and Brandon Witt (1) 0.39%

So two votes... who do you think, Brashear and ... ?

Looks like some Canucks thought it would be funny to vote for their role player teammates. Unless those two voted for themselves.

It could be a sign that at least some players DO read these boards...

Didn't the whole Rory Fitzpatrick All-Star thing start here?

Do you guys really think Brashear and Shanny dislike each other? I mean yea they fought, but the fight was basically Shanny trying to get the team motivated and to me it didn't really seem that in the interviews after the game that Shanny had any hatred for Donald but that he wanted to fight someone and knew Brashear was a sure thing.

No, I don't really think so, but I can't imagine there are more players (2) who hate Shanahan most than Hollweg (1) and Janssen (1). Granted, this wasn't a scientific survey, but it strikes me as odd.
