I dislike Toronto and Montreal pretty evenly so...
Toronto - Matthews
Montreal - Weber
Philadelphia - Gritty
Washington - Orlov
I dislike Toronto massively so...
Toronto - Patty
Detroit - Witkowski
Montreal - Domi (for now with the way I know how he plays I'll probably end up hating him in 2-3 games)
Boston - McAvoy
**** the Isles but I love Pulock and can respect Barzal, last year wasn’t a fluke
As an islanders fan I always secretly loved Callahan and McD on the Rags.
Haven’t seen much of him but the few times I have I think Chytil is going to be a tremendous player. That’s about it for me.
I dislike all other teams, pretty equally... but I guess Philly holds a slight edge in the "least favourite" department. So in that case, I have a lot of respect for Simmonds' game. He's the guy on their team, that I'd like to see in Black and Yellow.
League-wide and in general though... it's Ovechkin, by far. I've always loved his game and his abilities, and I had an interest in him before he was drafted, since I half-expected him to end up on the Penguins.
Giordano is a really good player
Rangers - McDonagh's gone so nobody.
Flyers - Giroux. Couturier too. Overall I have a lot of respect for this Flyers squad.
Maple Leafs - Marleau because he's a Shark chasing a cup, not a Leaf.
Mark Giordano. Hard to hate such a character guy who makes everyone he plays with better. The rest of them can rot for all I care.
How can you not like Bergeron for the Bruins? Plays the right way.
Same goes for Giordano for the Flames.
Detest Toronto but don't mind Tavares. He's only been a Leaf for a short time so.....
Huge Habs Fan here who hates the Bruins with a passion but.....
I think Chara is the best captain in the game. Plays hard, defends his teammates and carries himself with class. Same as Bergeron.
How they can play with that piece of garbage Marchand is beyond me.
Chicago - Kane
Dallas - Benn
Colorado - Girard/Nate Mack
Winnipeg - Buff/Connor
Nashville - I really don't like any of them
Minnesota - Yawn...Luke Kunin by default
Big fan of how Patric Hornqvist plays.
San Jose: Karlsson...it really kills me that that's where he ended up. I would've been fine with him going anywhere but San Jose and LA.
Los Angeles: Kopitar. Much as I hate how often he's victimized Anaheim in the past I have to respect his game. I still feel the debate of Getzlaf v Kopi is closer than many think but that's another matter. In any case, I think all that praise and worship Toews was getting should have been going to Kopitar.
I also have great respect for Doughty as a hockey player. I have very little in regards to him as a person.
Nashville: Subban. I enjoy his personality and though he's not a guy I'd say is a truly elite defenseman, he's very talented.
Flyers fan and I'm choking back feelings of vomiting just thinking about liking a Pens player, but I can begrudgingly admit that I've always respected and admired the way that Phil Kessel goes about his business. He's a hard guy to hate unless you're in Toronto apparently. I've liked him since he was drafted last in the ASG and had an IDGAF attitude.
Canadiens - Price.
Penguins - Crosby.*
*I don’t really “like” him... I just hate him a lot less than the other guys.
Penguins: Kessel, since he always got too much heat for dumb reasons.
Rangers: Lundqvist, since he deserves so much better.
Islanders: Uh, I guess Sbisa since he's.... entertaining on the ice.
Bergeron for sure.
