I kind of liked a lot of unpopular names:

Paul Mara
Nik Zherdev
Nigel Dawes
Colton Orr
Derek Morris
Dmitri Kalinin

Not sure how unpopular he was, but I was also in love with Fedor Tyutin. Mancrush status.

Drury - Not his fault Sather is a dolt.

Fleury - Actually hated him before we got him, loved him once he was here.

Zherdev - He was exactly what I expected, so I wasn't disappointed. He is what he is, and that's still better than most of what we have.

Nedved & Hlavac - Liked both, never cared as much for Dvorak.

Morris - Always wanted him on this team. He, not Antropov, was the biggest reason we made the playoffs down the stretch. Underrated player.

Nieminen - Didn't even care how he played. His television appearances were gold.

Lundmark - Still think the Rangers ruined his career, even if he was never going to reach the lofty expectations set for him.

Russ Courtnall - Wish he woulda stuck around more.

Daniel Goneau - He had some nice games during a couple of call-ups.

Vladimir Vorobiev - Ditto.

This might be the most disturbing post in the thread. How could you possibly like either of those guys? Not counting enforcers or goons, these are two of the dumbest players I've ever seen in the NHL. They were like turnovers/bad penalties/goals against just waiting to happen. Never has the phrase "zero hockey sense" been so true as in either of their cases.

Kinda curious as to how people are defining "unpopular." Seems like some are going with "disliked," whereas others are going with "wasn't all that recognized."

The fan faves I disliked are/were Avery and Purinton. And if there any geniuses who think I just don't appreciate the tough guys or brawlers, I loved Domi, liked Langdon, and liked Kocur, just to name a few.

Edit: After reading some of the responses, I'm struck by some claiming that Purinton was ever unpopular with the crowd at MSG. Never heard a complaint about him while I was there, only mad cheering for when he fought.

Ryan Hollweg.

For all of his shortcomings, he busted his ass every single shift as a Ranger.

Hated the stupid boarding penalty's he took. Hated his lack of understanding of the game. He isn't a good hockey player.

But I feel like he did my team proud with his efforts.

Loved Lindros, liked Brashear until it was clear he mailed it in, and Kovalev was one of my favs every time he came back. I like Hlavac and always thought Malholtra just needed another chance.

I actually didn't mind Cullen either, aside from the contract.

Cullen was a solid player just used wrong. i never liked Brasher and i always liked Lindros and Kovalev. I liked Malhotra especially after kicking the crap out of one of the Devils

This is an excellent question. Unfortunately most of the answers don't fit into the category.

I'm really having trouble thinking of someone and I've been a die-hard Ranger fan since the late 60's.

I hated Nedved before anyone else did.
I wrote to Sather to tell him NOT to get Lindros.
I would have liked Hollweg better if he knew how to fight.

Maybe Paul Mara, although he wasn't that unpopular. And going back a little more Stéphane Quintal because the one year he played with the Rangers they had no tough guys at all and he fought in place of the tough guy. I liked Purinton until he became so dirty that he was an embarrassment. I liked Grossek only because he knocked Matt Johnson goofy. And I stuck with Prucha longer than most.

But generally when it comes hating bad Rangers I lead the way.

I can't say I like or dislike Jessiman. I just like Brown, Getzlaf, Parise, Richards, Perry, etc much much more.

This is unfathomable. Kalinin was just total fail in his time as a Ranger.

Man Pavel Bure Eric Lindros and Theo Fluery. These were star players in the NHL, not unpopular players people.

Thought it was Tomas Kloucek that knocked Matty Johnson senseless. Big collision at Center ice right?
