I had a bet with myself over/under 2 days for face to hate on crosby. I won the bet with the under.
So by your logic, LA never won those two recent Stanley Cups?
There is hockey talent everywhere. Even in St. Louis, though you don't care to admit it. Tell me that there aren't 29 other teams in the league who'd want Tarasenko, Steen, Fabbri, Elliott, Lehtera, Shattenkirk, Boumeister, Petroangelo, and Backes on their rosters!
According to Face's "cut the map" analysis, one of those "low talent placeholder" teams won the Cup in 2004, 2006, 2007, 2012 & 2014. Since 2005 was the lock out, that means one of those placeholder teams won the Cup 45% of the time over the last 12 years! Yet Face left all the Canadian Franchise's in the insider's club and none of them have won since 1993 (Dude that is 22 years!!)...and two out of the last three times a Canadian team actually made the Finals, they lost to a Placeholder team. The NHL world has changed my friend....and this year's Champion will be another Placeholder Team!!
There are literally no redeeming qualities of that complaining, diving, cheap shot artist that would turtle at the first sign of trouble piece of $^%*!...
Third, an attack on Face's map is also is a defense of the Black Aces/Black Knights in Vegas and let's face it, being able to take in your favorite teams away game at the T Mobile Center and then hitting the tables later that night is a good thing :-)!
Who is generally the most despised/dirty player in the NHL?
Ever, or right now?
Both is fine for this discussion. Current players mentioned will be fun to watch during the Playoffs (if they are playing in them).
