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.
