    Pretty much...

    Marchand if you're a fan of an Eastern Conference Team;

    Marchand or Tkachuk if you're a fan of an Western Conference Team (excluding Vancouver);

    Marchand if you're fan of Vancouver (cause you aint over 2011 yet); and

    Crosby if you're fan of Boston.

    McDavid. I guess I'd let him fill in at 2C until Kadri can get his shit together.

    I've never hated a player and wanted them. I hate them. I want them to broke, in the gutter, life in shambles ect.

    Tom Wilson for me I just hate Marchand too much to even want him on my team.

    Hate is a strong word, but a player that rubs me the wrong way: Pat Maroon

    I have an irrational hate for Panarin. Now he's on my team, yes?

    Brad Marchand would definitely make this biggest impact on winning of any of these dirty players. He is by a wide margin biggest rat in the NHL, with a career full of dirty cheap plays but he is also by far the most talented of the rats.

    If he were to join the Leafs... I think I would actually be a a tad more ambivalent about the team. However if they lost again, well at least I could watch Marchand lose. And to be honest, if somehow the Leafs were to win the Cup and break over a half centutry of failure, seeing Brad Marchand hoist the Cup would be only a small damper on the moment.

    But he won't join the Leafs. He will continue to be on the team that tortures the Leafs the more then any other franchise by far. In the city that tortures Toronto across sports (Celtics knocking out the Raptors in 7 last season, the Red Sox- along with the Yankees- flexing their massive payroll for decades to pilfer talent from the MLB and block the Jays from the playoffs), and he will continue to be a dirty rat of a hockey player.

    That seems a bit much... There are some players I really don't like to watch, particularly guys who do some extremely dangerous things on the ice that are intended, not to make a hockey play but to actually seriously injure an opponent, but even for guys like that (eg. Brad Marchand), It seems wrong to wish that their lives off the ice are utterly ruined. These are people after all who are playing a sport and none of them (even Marchand) have done anything nearly terrible enough on the ice to warrant that kind of retribution.

    For Toronto sports fans you can pretty much list all the good players on all the Boston sports teams; they have all tortured a team that played in the city (heck Toronto even hosted the Bills on and off for several seasons to complete the quadfecta of pain). But yes, especially Marchand.

    The only guy that really stirs a hate in me is Wilson, and I don't want him on my team.

    So Marchand, I guess.

    Tom Wilson maybe? Big RHS with a scoring touch. Actually, he's exactly what we needed for the past 5 years.

    Sorry OP but would love to have a line of both kachucks centered by Marchand.

    would be like watching the Hanson brothers

    just imagine all the chirping going on at the face off dots.

    Let's talk about the 3 Bruins players I've learned to hate with passion.

    1- Chara. I still haven't forgiven his dirty hit on Pacioretty, but I think he's a decent human being. I respect him and his accomplishments and could cheer for him.

    2- Lucic. I think he used to be a jerk and a bully. His antics during the handshakes after being eliminated by Montreal in 2014 were so unsportsmanlike. But I think he's more mature now. And his scoring woes have probably brought him back to earth. I could see him playing in Montreal (except he's pretty useless now).

    3- Marchand. NO WAY. Of course he's super talented, but I would throw up seeing him in a Habs uniform. He's my most hated individual in the NHL, along with referee Chris Lee. And they both happen to have the same rat face. It can't be a coincidence.

    Maybe it's a cultural thing but where I'm from, you don't both hate a player and want them in your team.

    I for one hate Gabriel Landeskog and would rather see my team torn down and move locations before I want that Rat on my team.

    I think the point is the Penguins have some excellent centre’s on their team so Giroux would be their 4th best. It’s also a low blow to their rival Flyers fans insinuating that their best centre would be the Pens worst centre. But cmon man give them some credit. Giroux would be on the third line in Pittsburgh.

    I don’t hate any player who’s not on my team.

    Remember when we signed Brad May back then? I haven't forgiven that signing until today.

    I love your take and feel your pain. I think a great thread would be what player do you wish your team never traded/ picked up. I still regret that the Jets had to trade Teemu Selanne away and it was probably the first time I had to concede this is really just a business despite adults playing a kids game.
