Hockey is full of players that are fan favorites amongst fans of their respective teams. These players are very much the face of the franchise, you see countless people wearing the player’s jersey and number at home games and they are the one with the longest lines at fan focused events.

Then there are those players that everyone loves, no matter where they are in the NHL. Players like Pavel Datsyuk, Luc Robitaille and Martin Brodeur, no matter the sweater they you can’t help but like them. They are great hockey players and all around class acts.

But outside of those two groups of players are the players you love to hate. The players that could get christened by the pope, adopt a dog from a shelter, hell, even by you dinner and you would still have no choice but to hate them.

So lets take a look at the Kings’ division and decide which player on each team hockey fans just can’t help but hate.

    This article is poop. With the exception of the flames you just picked really good star players. You just personally hate them because they play well and play against your team often. I like how you omit the fact that the yakupov goal was to tie the game with 4.6 seconds left in the game, he’s in his rookie season and he just scored a huge goal. He’s allowed to be a bit too exuberant

    Why do you call the article “Most hated PLAYERS” and then go on to name teams?

    Burrows? Really? Over Kesler? Wow, methinks you’ve missed most of the recent LA Vancouver matchups. Other than the odd bite, Burr plays with a boatload of integrity. And Mason Raymond? The guy has never dove or cheap shotted once in his career; take it easy on the li’l guy, he’s just light on his skates is all. Too bad Lapierre’s gone or you would have had an instant shoo in, but it’s really gotta be Kesler now, no? (also, Bieksa is a king among men, and should have been invited to the Olympic camp)
