I know, I know. When you read that you thought, “The entire team, organization, rink and everything in between,” but let’s try and be a little more specific for this.

When I started this two players came to mind instantly, Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf.

There is just something about those two that rubs me the wrong way. Whether it be the constant complaining to the refs or their knack for the timely goal against the Kings. Both were a near tie in my book, but I came to a final decision and went with Perry.

Perry is the typical agitator but unlike most has a big offensive upside. He gets under the skin of your team’s star players, giving each of them an extra unnecessary shot or jab here and there and then sits back and takes a shot as the other guy gets a retaliation penalty.

But what gets me upset more than anything is how he reacts after he takes those shots. If you’re going to give it be able to take it and don’t complain when it happens and there is no call.

    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)
