Least Talented Fan Favorite

It's a given that most of the big name players are fan favorites. Who are some of the lesser known fan favorites in the league? You know, the ones that fans of other teams may not be aware of being so popular. Finally, why are they so loved at home?

Homer pick; Artyukhin (Tampa)
Not too talented due to his hands of stone, but the potential is there.
Fan favorite because of his size and how he uses it.

I see your Boogard and raise you a Matt Bradley. Yeah, he's wicked in shootouts () but at least Boogard can win fights consistently.

Since when is Nylander a fan favorite? Or Clark, for that matter, since he's been bad?

I couldn't think of anybody else on the Caps. I think Clark is a "fan favorite" though. All of our guys who are so-called fan favorites have earned it and deserved it imo.

Clark hasn't been what you'd call a fan favorite these past two years. I already listed Matt Bradley, anyways, and he fits this perfectly.

Yea he is. When he got his first goal the place went nuts. Hometown enforcer on a team not winning much is a recipe for instant fan favorite.

it was a f-ing joke hearing the crowd at JLA chant "ozzie" after osgood made 2 saves in the last colorado game. he had already allowed 4 goals, most of them bad.

he allowed another bad goal soon after.

and then lost in the shootout.
