Same with Ryan "Brittany" Whitney circa 2009.

I never understood the "Brittany" nickname. His last name was already a girl's name.

I really don't hate many penguin players, but I strongly dislike having Macintyre on the roster. Unless it's a fight off the face off, he can't even catch anyone in the nhl to fight them.

I hated Ruutu before he got here and never liked him.

Rico Fata.

Might have been one of the fastest players in the NHL during his time with the Penguins but he was so frustrating to watch. I heard "Offsides Fata" so much during the 2005-06 season that I thought he might have changed his name during the lockout, then I realized he was offsides....again.

I remember not particularly caring for Ian Moran. Hatcher is a good one, too

Yes. Him and his defense partner Chris Joseph were equally brutal. Pens blue line was a joke during those years...horrible...

Konstantin Koltsov. The guy had blazing speed and hands of stone, actually probably lead.

Does anyone know what really went on with that? What was his reason at the time? He was a PPG player when he decided to leave...

He claimed he had to retire due to shoulder problems, which apparently disappeared once he got to Europe.

Good one! I remember when they signed him to a 3 year $3mill contract to "protect" the team....what a waste. Another enforcer that goes to the Burgh and goes soffffff....

He also got married, IIRC.

Mango Salsa.

MO couldnt hit the net on the shootout.. used to frustrate me so much... and well I didn't care for him much to begin with.

But he's second place to Paul Martin for me... Ive never grown so upset during a game.

Surprised by the hate for some players like Moran, he did everything asked from the Pens. Tibbits I can understand. Jagr? Without him the Pens may have never won those 2 cups....the way he left is a good reason I guess.
