Of those, Tootoo.

He is dirty and brings very little positive it seems. Ott not far behind.

Kaleta is one of those kind of guys I'd love on my team, Avery obviously works really well for his team no matter how big of a dick he is, I love Ruutu for what he did for the Penguins, and Cooke is practically a pacifist compared to what fans in the Western Conference seem to paint him as...he certainly isn't the same player he was with the Canucks.

Ribeiro pisses me off for all the acting he's done, but I'd take him on my team in a millisecond without thinking.

although he does pull hair.. which is on the same level as a player who rag-dolls or dives..

Ott, he is a pretty good player and doesn't really need to play as dirty as he does. One of the funniest things I have seen in the past couple of years was when Boston just flat out destroyed Dallas with Ott and Avery pulling their antics last year. It backfired on them and it really was a thing of beauty.

matt cooke isn't much of a player to hate ... annoying? yes, perhaps, but he's not dirtier than mike richards or the average nhl guy

I voted for Ribeiro to point out the lunacy of having his name mentioned with those other guys. that really grinds my gears

Burrows does some garbage things too. Exhibit A:

Kaleta, Ruutu and Ribeiro are gutless pukes. Avery is just pathetic.

The last three all deserve my vote. But I could only go for one, and that was Ruutu.

No, he just picks fights with players that never otherwise fight. I mean, come on, Brian Rolston and Pierre-Marc Bouchard? Burrows has as many gutless tendencies as Ruutu.

Don't say that to Wild fans. His slash-and-run on Matt Johnson in the 2003 playoffs will never be forgotten.

Jarkko Ruutu for sure. As much as guys like Avery, Ott, Kaleta, Cooke, etc. might be annoying, they clearly have NHL ability and talent. Ruutu seems 100% focused on simply starting **** instead of helping his team win.
