Pascal Dupius because he still owes me the remote I smashed watching the playoffs last year.

Plenty of guys I haven't liked, but to this day Marty McSorley is the only Penguin I've ever booed.

I can't really say I "hate" any NHL player tbh, but ones I dislike:

Godard
Big Mac
Whitney
Melichar
christensen

Who was that forward that Fhcmt used to love / steiggy used to always claim he scored "goal scorers goals" even though he sucked? Having a brainfart but add him to this list

Here's my Top 10. Not surprising that defensemen lead the list, as their mistakes are more glaring than a forward's mistakes:

1. Ron Stackhouse
2. Duane Rupp
3. Dmitri Mironov
4. Kevin Hatcher
5. Hans Jonsson
6. Aleksey Morozov
7. Glen Murray [anyone remember Gary from the Igloo Report saying "ABM" (Anyone But Murray)?]
8. Zigmund Palffy
9. Tom Barrasso
10. Tyler Kennedy

Lot's of fringe players who could have made the list, simply because they were less talented or softer than people wanted them to be. In no particular order:
Michel Ouellet
Josef Beranek
Robert Dome
Milan Kraft
Kris Beech
Chris Wells
Dave Roche
Peter Lee

Jagr can't be included on the list, because while he was a Penguin he was almost universally loved. If someone wanted to make a list of non-Penguins most hated by Penguin fans, he'd probably be #1 on that list... followed somewhere by Adam Graves, Subban, Ovechkin, etc.

Jagr was my childhood hero. He broke my young heart, and even having gained some grey hairs part of me still hates him. Then there was #Jagrwatch... For the record I got into hockey in 94/95 so the Cups were not a factor to me when I was younger! Having gained perspective Jagr is certainly a 'unique' character, 2nd to Mario in overall importance in team history (thus far) IMO.

At a meet and greet for the Anaheim Ducks, my wife struck up a conversation with Ian that lasted close to an hour. She was sharing tips as to nice areas where to live, where his wife may like to shop, holiday events in the area, etc... Nicest guy, ever. He and Ryan Shannon made a positive impact on her. I think he only played a couple games before being shipped out.

Billy TIbbets. As a people we forgive and forget, and his time was served, but it never felt like a good move for the team I love.

I seriously will never doubt his talent but IMO Jagr is my most hated Pen.

I never liked the head case he became and the greedy money monger he is. While he is one of the NHL greats, I would not cry if I woke up tomorrow and his Penguin stats were erased.

However, I probably would have thought more of him had he really wanted to and took less to play for the Pens in his most recent comeback. Sadly, his legacy is sealed in my hockey world.

most hated for the way they played:
Kent Manderville. absolutely worthless.

most hated for other:
Jagr. I dont care what he did before he became a jag, partly because i wasnt watching hockey yet. the game after the 5OT playoff loss had me disgusted with him, and i barely knew **** about the sport. and F him for everything since.

Beech for failed expectations.

Melichar, because he is the gold-standard of Penguins whipping boys, and would make Paul Martin look like Bobby Orr.

Peter Lee and Rod Schutt. Two wasteoids acquired from the Habs for a 1st round pick. Rumor had it Pens GM Baz Bastein thought he was getting Steve Shutt.

Mathieu Garon... Always scared the **** out of me when someone took a shot on him.

Mostly because of a game against the Bruins in 2009 when he let in like 3 goals on his first 4 shots, but got lucky we won 6-5 or 7-5.

I used to hate Jonsson, but when I found out he was the last pick in the draft, I just started appreciating that he beat the odds and played in the NHL.

So more seriously... Endicott and Caron. I legit did a jig when they were released. it was also the day of the beer festival @ Sharpedge so I may have been slightly intoxicated

Petr Klima

His tenure as a Penguin was so forgettable that he was released after nine games and there's not a single pic available of him in a Pens uniform on google image search.

I'm guessing this was Madden who made this comment.
