A few years ago this was an easy answer: anyone on the Penguins. Now after two consecutive playoff losses to a dirtbag Sharks team, the answer might have changed. So I'm going to keep this fair for everyone and pick the player(s) from each team most likely to garner hatred. I will try to keep it at one player per team, but there will be a couple exceptions. I will also list every player on each team and raisins why they're included on this list.
In Alphabetagammacal order:
Anaheim: One of the easiest choices to make, the Ducks have plenty of players that deserve to be scorned but Corey Perry easily takes the cake as the worst of them by far. If you don't know why Perry is on this list then there's no helping you.
Boston: Our first multi-representative team, the Bruins force you to choose between postseason shitbag Brad Marchand and Professional Ryan Miller Steamroller Milan Lucic. Both equally good choices for their actions but it might be hard for them to gather votes seeing as how the Wings weren't involved in either case.
Calgary: After some careful deliberation I decided to go with the most deserving Flame here, Olli Jokinen. Seriously what kind of giant asshole steals his teammates hat trick?
Carolina: The Canes are a terrible team we rarely ever play and don't really do anything at all to even warrant conversation about. So I said fuck it and put down Tuomo Ruutu.
Chicago: Finally another team with multiple options to hate. Marian Hossa deserves to be hated for completely disappearing in the 09 postseason then bolting to a hated division rival the next year. Patrick Kane is a whiny little shit who make millions a year and beats up cab drivers over spare change. Dan Carcillo is Dan Carcillo. Any of them make a fine choice.
Colorado: If this was a list back in the late 90's, it would be nothing but Colorado players. Nowadays the team is a running joke and a shell of its former self with none of its cup winners remaining. However, they do employ Shane O' Brien and that's who we're going with.
Columbus: The joke team that's dragging the Central down with it's unyielding shittiness, the Jackets players don't do anything to win games nor warrant any emotion from opposing fans. That said, I'm picking Steve Mason for having his only decent game of the season (and the rest of his career hahaha) against the Wings to get the Jackets their first win. What a dick.
Dallas: This one was almost as easy as Anaheim. Steve Ott, Steve Ott, Steve Ott, Steve Ott. Next!
Detroit: Well to keep things fair, here's the sole Wings rep Todd Bertuzzi! While the Steve Moore incident was long ago, other teams fans refuse to shut up about it which I suppose is enough to earn him this spot over fan favorite Jonathon "Shitbox" Ericsson.
Edmonton: Following in the footsteps of the Canes and Jackets, the Oilers are a terrible team filled with extremely talented young rookies it would be impossible to hate. But hey, Ben Eager is on the team!
Florida: Almost solely for Jeff, here's former Wing Mikael Samuelsson!
Minnesota: Thankfully the Wild spent the offseason trading for Sharks players, giving us someone Wings fans can easily hate. The choice between Dany Heatly and Diving Shitoguccimane was an easy one to make.
Montreal: Whilst not doing anything against the Wings yet, PK Subban is enough of a shit for everyone outside of Montreal to hate his guts.
Nashville: Not only is he a giant asshat, but his stupid fucking last name gives the hick fans raisin to bring those fucking train whistles to games. Fuck you and your stupid fucking name Jordin Tootoo.
New Jersey: Another tough choice. You can't really hate Fatty because he took down Patrick Roy's records which earns him an eternal free pass from Wings fans. So I guess David Clarkson gets the nomination.
New York Rangers: If Sean Avery wasn't being pulled up and down the NHL and AHL like a yo-yo this would be an easy choice. So I'm going to go the controversial route and pick Ruslan Fedetenko because he has a stupid babby face that makes me want to punch him.
Ottawa: I guess Chris Neal is the biggest dirtbag out of a team filled with them so that's who I'll go with.
Philadelphia: The easiest choice of them all, by far. Chris Pronger. No matter what team he played for, it would always be Chris Pronger as the #1 pick. Fuck Chris Pronger.
Phoenix: Shane Doan gets the vote for his dangerous (oftentimes illegal) hits against the Wings. Hitting someone without the puck from behind on an icing? Fuck you Doan.
Pittsburgh: Another clusterfuck of players. Sidney Christ for his diving and whining, plus the fact that even when he's injured the league will not shut the fuck up about him, Evgeni Malkin for dirtbagging it up against Z back in the 09 finals (and his stupid caveman face), and of course the "reformed" Matt Cooke who prematurely ended Marc Savard's career then still required a whole nother season of suspensions before realizing he should change his game.
San Jose: Any respect one would have for Joe Thorton or the Sharks is long gone after their performances in the last two postseason meetings between our teams. Thorton gets on this list solely for his epic dive (which has been made into countless gifs), but let's not forget professional dumbshit Ryane Clowe who decided to talk shit about Kronner's hitting leading to him getting destroyed in return (who could've seen that coming?). And the endless snow showers on Howard. Grow the fuck up assholes.
St. Louis: David Backes is the giant doosh captain of a team of giant dooshes, so that means he'll represent the Blues. Barret Jackman doesn't want to feel left out so he whines about elbows and cross-checks his way past his teammates onto the ballet.
Tampa Bay: Really, the only choice here is Steve Downie.
Toronto: Dion Phaneuf has a stupid name and is a jackass so there.
Vancouver: Nudeler is from Michigan, and doesn't bite people, so Alexander Burrows gets the nod instead.
Washington: I decided to go with Roman Hammerlick just because his name is stupid. Hammerlick? Really?
Winnipeg: Couldn't be anyone other than Drunken Boating Fatty now could it?
So there you have it, a representative(s) from every team. Now to lay down a few ground rules:
1. For someone not on the list, write his name down in comments and I'll add them to the poll.
2. Please only vote once. The last thing I want is someone and his sockpuppets voting for Sidney Chirst a million billion times.
3. I'll make this easy: Brian Elliot sucked, sucks, & will always suck. There, I've now laid the groundwork for people to derail the shit out of this thread. Bring it trolls.
Update!: I figure it'd be a good way for candidates to get more votes by posting new videos of them being dirtbags (all videos will be in games that happened after this post was made). With that in mind, here's no-votes Subban slew-footing fan favorite Khris Cunitz:
So with both Cronger and Prosby out for the season, this is a great opportunity for players (cough Thorton cough) to get the deciding votes they need!
