Most Hated NHL Teamsbooklover1
The Top Ten
They've gone and accused teams like the Canucks and the Canadiens of dirty play and cheap behavior yet are guilty of so much more of it. Then you've got a number of their fans, who always seem to be able to come out with some sort of convoluted, twisted way to defend their team's goons when they're caught cheap-shotting or injuring other players. Every team has their share of objectionable conduct on the ice, but not only have the Bruins practiced an entire laundry list of it just within the past few seasons, they try to convince everyone that they play a clean, moral, respectable game. It's a shame that the talent is almost always overshadowed by some of the most hypocrisy, classlessness, and dirty play imaginable.
No doubt the dirtiest team in the NHL with intentional injury to opposing teams. Makes me wonder how much the referees are being paid off to ignore the cross checking and other penalties to the opposing teams. The Bruins should be penalized and fined heavily for their style of play.
Horrible. Dirty dirty hockey team. Shame they are allowed to get away with it. Makes for crappy hockey and teaches kids to be dirty. Should be punted from the league.
They like to play dirty. I get hockey you do hit each other but they're too extreme.V 140 Comments
There lists are stupid. The least hated teams are teams that never win and have a roster full of poons. The more your team is hated, the better they are and the more they are playing the game the way it was meant to be played.
They "fly" other players out by harming them
Their players are always out to hurt the other team. They don't play hockey. They aim to take out other players because they don't have the talent to actually play. Their just dirty.
I think it's fair to say that you all are jealous of how solid the Flyers are. Y'all are probably just some salty Pittsburgh fans or some old-time Soviets who are still sad about the Flyers destroying the Soviets back in 1976. The Flyers are a solid team. Solid checks, great goals. The Flyers revolutionized hockey in North America. Did the Flyers ever have to try and relocate? No, because they're a solid team. What about Pittsburgh? They had to sell the team after Lemieux left, because Lemieux (and one or two other players) carried the whole team, proving that they suck. And then they got really darn lucky (or unlucky, I should say. No one wants a crybaby) in the 2005 draft lottery, letting them draft the Crybaby Crosby. The Flyers are a great team. Pittsburgh should be #2, not Philly.V 53 Comments
Go listen to the Wired: Stadium Series Flyers vs. Penguins. Listen to Coach Sullivan whine through every single second of it. Realize that he is the exact perfect voice for that franchise. 52 years of listening to their incessant whining, whether they're the worst team in the league or the best, is enough to make anyone hate everything about them, and frankly it surprises me that they're not number one on this list.
Cindy Crosby... enough said.
Pittsburgh fans are there for Sid the baby
This team is the biggest joke in the league. After Mario left, this team was close to collapse, they couldn't win to save their lives, their fan base basically abandoned them, and the only thing that saved them was the band-wagoners that jumped on board after their up and coming players managed to win 2 cups. From then on forward the only thing that has kept this team afloat is the league's constant praise of the biggest joke of a hockey player ever to put on a pair of skates. You all know him, you all hate him, it's Crybaby Crosby. This guy probably holds more league wide hatred then the team itself, he is the biggest diver ever to play in the league, he takes cheap shots left and right and doesn't get called on them because "he's Crosby," and he loves to try and play the body and start drama on the ice but then crys when he gets hit. He's a joke, but all of his band wagon fans will say "oh you just hate him because he's good," but anyone can be good if you dive ...moreV 78 Comments
If you're a non-Canadiens fan and don't hate them, you need sectioning. Like seriously, it's pretty easy to just hate on a team with 24 Stanley Cups, an extremely obnoxious fanbase, self-proclaimed organisation. Playing against them infuriates me the most because they will do literally anything to just win, I swear they actually will be favoured by officials one day. Canadiens? No chance they are my team.
Honestly, I am a Leafs fan so I may be biased, but this team should be higher up in this list! Toxic players, cheaters, and they only play to win. THIS IS NOT THE NHL WE WANT!
I live and Montreal, and if you didn't hate the Canadians, you will. Imagine watching your favourite team play against the habs, and your team loses in overtime. At that very moment, the phone starts to ring. You answer. And the other end of the line, you have at least 10 guys screaming things like "loser", "worst nhl team" and "long live Carey Price". They eventually hang up without identifying themselves. Then your phone rings again. And again. And again. And you get text messages, and they leave messages because you aren't answering anymore. Just too ruin your night even more. That is hockey in Montreal. And don't try to take your revenge when your team beats them. You'll get called the French equivalent of "f*****", "a******" etc. Even by your closes friends and family members
The reason they're hated so much is because of rivalry. That's it. - TheHabsFanV 97 Comments
Worst team ever - SilentGalaxy199
Simply put: very few current supporters are long-time fans, most are bandwagon fans. Look at their attendance in the first three post-lockout years: 65%, 62%, and 82%. They were bad all three years. Then in 2008-09, Toews becomes captain, Quenneville becomes coach, suddenly they start winning, and people who never supported them before claim that they have been fans forever.
The "fans" are arrogant, the NHL sucks up to the team, Toews is a cocky captain, Kane is selfish and a terrible role model, Crawford is a drunk, and I could go on.
Eww Blackhawks - ArcticWolf
Their Fans are annoying and they are rude - ArcticWolfV 41 Comments
The Flyers used to be #1 for me because they would do many dirty things and get away with it per game (Carsillo, Hartnell, and Sestito were the worst offenders), but since they've softened up over the years? It's gotta be the Leafs.
It's not even the players themselves. I love players like Marner, Matthews, and Tavares. The media is brutal over there and will do anything to get people's attention. They ran Phil Kessel out of town by blaming him for all of their troubles and making fun of his appearance, for instance. Or how about when the Toronto media wrote several articles about a save that their backup goalie made during practice? It's like they're trying to parody themselves. Just a couple of examples. I cannot even begin to dive into the rabbit hole that is their horrid media.
The franchise is arrogant enough to charge the highest ticket prices in all the NHL despite not winning a cup for an entire generation. They constantly make it seem like they're going to win ...more
Its more the fans and city than the team itself. Toronto thinks it's the center of the universe and everything it does is gold. Their fans are terrible and mocked survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing by making t-shirts that said "Toronto Stronger" (to counter "Boston Strong" in support of the survivors. And most recently, their fans started chanting in Vancouver during a MOMENT OF SILENCE for Ted Lindsay, who had just passed away.
This team is very cocky and I'm glad that the bruins beat them. I'm a fan of the sharks by the way
This crappy team is loaded with high profile elite players but they ruteinly gets beaten by dumpster fire non playoff teams. One of the most overrated team in the league. I hate them all.V 38 Comments
LA is too hot for hockey
Absolute scum...these guys are dirty and and cheap, plain and simple
La sucks toranto is the best
I can't believe no one's voted for these guys yet. I really wanted to vote for Boston, but they're already near the top, so I'll just sum it up with -- Dustin Brown. He plays like a prick, and he looks like one too.V 23 Comments
Ovechkin is possibly the dirtiest player in the league wilson need to be kicked out of nhl. This whole team is filled with filthy unethical goons.
Ovechkin is possibly the dirtiest player in the league... stoopid
They pretty much just suck
Dirty cheap shot their opponents then run & act like "what? " & their cheap shots VERY OFTEN put the guy out for a long time or for good - that's the only way they can win...CHEAP DIRTY TEAMV 21 Comments
Is there a bigger bunch of whiners anywhere in pro sports? They lose to Chicago, so they hate them. They lose to LA, so they hate them. They lose to Boston, so they hate them.
They can never man up and admit the better team won. Their fans are just as bad, and seem to have a sense of self-righteousness. If they lose, it's the leagues fault.
They're from Vancouver, and people from Vancouver are known for being obnoxiously nationalist and miserably hateful. The team that plays there is no different. They're ridiculously prideful and haven't done a thing.
Loser team like the fickle whiney fans
There is no other team I love to see lose like Vancouver. They are a bunch of winey babiesV 50 Comments
This team is my least favorite, I hope they don't play my favorite team in the playoffs again after what happened in 2017 game 5!
Someone annoys me with those buttholes - ArcticWolf
This my least favorite nhl team after they kept giving negative memories of when they vs my favorite nhl team since the 2017 playoffs round 1 and round 2 game 5
Purely a team just for money, all thanks to Disney, of course. No love for the sport and the fans are the worst. Orange County fans know nothing about hockey and yet display Ducks crap all over.V 16 Comments
Ugh I hate them
100 years and only 4 cups... How can you get behind a franchise that horrible. They're whiners when things don't go their way; and when their on top they still complain to the refs, yet they have bred a culture of cheap shot artists. But the main point I wanna make is NASH IS A BABY!
I hate this team, their arrogant fans and their homer announcers. This organization is pathetic, 4 championships in the 100 years they've been around. Now they're trying to sign every big name to buy championships. Lundqvist is definitely the most overrated goalie in the league. The guy is huge in that net, he is most likely wearing twice as many pads as any other goalie to take away shooting areas. I can't stand it.V 28 Comments
I hate the panthers I hate the lightning I hate the ducks I hate the bruins and am not a big fan of the san jose sharks either at all there are quite a few teams I hate but I love all the canadian teams and always cheer for just the canadian one because it has been since 1993 since the cup has been to Canada and I really hate the panthers because the PANTHERS SUCK! and SO DO THE BRUINS! I hate the bruins just a Slightly bit more then I hate Florida and tampa the reason why I hate bruins panthers lightning is because the panthers and lightning there in Florida I mean Seriously in Florida if some one wanted to go skating they would have to spend all day in a dome and I hate the bruins is because they look like bumble bees chara is an idiot and everyone hates them and that is why I am posting this is because the panthers and lightning suck
I hope this team gets kicked and banished forever from the nhl. Who cares about bad sportsmanship tell me how many people even care about hockey down there.
The cup has been to florida before. To the lightning. So florida has won a cup. They are the same thing different team that's all.
The panthers are just silly just look at the shoulders of there Jerseys they Feature a sun a palm tree and a hockey stick it is just so stupid and silly is someone wanted to skate around or whatever or just p,ay a game of hockey they would have to spend all day in a air Condition domeV 18 Comments
Look to the 2019 playoff, the ultimate goon team!
I hate the blues because they play a very annoyingly physical game and because they have very unsportsmanlike players that take out their anger on the other players. Its not safe for the players and its just not fun to watch. Although, I must admit they have a really good penalty kill.
Annoying asf fans sing stupid stuff. Ugly city. Tarashenko is a commie.
Just because they have not won a cup does not mean you have to hate them I really dislike people because of that too not that I am a blues fan or anything like that but stillV 7 Comments
Their fans love to talk trash on social media.
How do you hate them now? These fans are actual fans, that know a thing or two about hockey, unlike fans in Los Angeles. Also, if you're a sabres fan, you have every right to be pissed off. The 1999 cup finals was a joke. The stars won by a controversial goal that should've been disallowed.
No this team is awesome shut the upV 7 Comments
Act like Whalers fans should embrace them after they essentially replaced the team. No thanks.
The city is too hot, no one supports them, there jerseys suck, there logo is disgraceful, and they just are HORRIBLE!
My new Least Favorite - ArcticWolf
Ugliest players on the team
Dallas has a hockey team?
Hate Cowboys and starsV 7 Comments
How does this team piss you off dude? They are both florida. So since the lightning won the cup against the flames in 04 and that tampa and florida are the same you could say that the florida panthers have won the stanley cup before.
The teams in the southern states I do not know what the fans think do they think it sucks to be the players because they live in Canada and the northern states and they think Canada is -100 when really it is not. Florida more like plus 100.
Idiot fans, have to give away free beer to get people into the building for the playoffs.
I'm a panthers fan so this team pisses me off so muchV 8 Comments
This is my 2nd least favorite team, after the flames 2019 playoffs, they had to tie it late in the 3rd and win in overtime twice in game 2 and 4, and disappoint me in the regular season twice with oilers and once with golden knights
Stolen from Quebec, that simple
Shut up, we have cups in our history unlike St. Louis *cough cough*
They are trashV 5 Comments
What is this team doing so low? They're the most boring active team. All they do is "the trap". Sure, it marginally works but it sure makes for one dull, slow game. Hockey is meant to be entertaining. The trap is not entertaining to watch. Defensive hockey is boring hockey. - BKAllmighty
In my opinion, the game itself is not a "trap" it is indeed entertaining, and if you have a problem with this team, and think its boring, I bet the Rangers would like to hear that. You don't know anything about hockey dumbass.
This team is not annoyig like most teams. Most teams that are worse play dirty, or are arrogant, and even just do so consistently well that they just start to annoy you. But this team is none of those things, they are just so boring to watch. The game seems to drag on forever.
The only reason they did any good in the past was because of Scott Stevens and Martin Brodeur. Missing the playoffs seems to be the status quo for New Jersey.V 3 Comments
Pretty hardcore fans on the island! Always looking to pick a fight with an opposing fan
Wow, you really are stupid.
I hate all New York teams n matter how good clean or bad New York sucks
SuckV 1 Comment
Definitely top five for dirtiest team in the league, they like to hit men while they're down and let the refs give them the go ahead. Almost like they pay off the refs to jerk each other off while the game is going. Take a cheap hit whenever they can get away with it.
Oh shut up about hating the senators
You do not know anything about this team then
Why you hate ottawa senators?V 6 Comments
So many excuses from the fans. Just admit your team has less than it needs to win the cup. Always has. A little humility is what your fan base needs.
Shameless POS team that probably bribed the refs in the playoffs because they couldn't beat the knights in clean, honest game. Trash coach, trash fans, trash players. This clowns were 9 minutes away from being shutout and be eliminated from first round. This disgusting organizations need to change their name to san jose cheaters.
No talent evander kane gotta be the dirtiest player in the league. No self control, no self discipline. I love seeing sad jose shrimps get destroyed by vegas golden knights.
Nothing but Thugs for 28 years and I hope they never win a cup.V 17 Comments
Not because they suck; I have personal reasons for this.
Will you idiots stop hating teams because they are not doing so good I bet if they even where they would not even be on this list because you guys are so stupid I mean just because any one that was used to be an oilers fan and are not anymore because they are not doing so good then you are nothing but a trader so leave the oilers out of this you guys need to stop hating teams because they are not doing so good.
The Edmonton Oilers suck! The Calgary Flames are better! Go Flames Go!
Beacus they just suck, the worst thing is they used to be great everyone loved them now they just suck they don't play very good the only Oilers game I like to watch is Flames vs Oilers.V 30 Comments
Will never get how this isn’t in the top five.

Thanks for my first career hat trick Martin jones. San jose sharks are truly a subpar garbage hockey team. - Mark stone
Classless whiners with a sense of entitlement after being handed one of the best expansion rosters in history.
No class, toxic fans ruin this otherwise great expansion team.
Team became an instant winner thanks to a sweetheart deal in the expansion draft.V 5 Comments
They hang banners of regular season accomplishments because they have nothing else to celebrate. Too many of their fans know absolutely nothing about the game and they have to print basic rules on the back of a "Go Preds! " sign. They toss trash onto the ice when they lose. PK Subban dives more blatantly than a soccer player (and that's saying something). They are the epitome of a team that deserves every ounce of mockery and hate they get.
Horrible team and rude fans. Players have no class
The preds are great I agree about the fans and chants being rude like the u suck thing but otherwise they are a awesome hockey team
Those guys suckV 6 Comments
Oilers are better
They are like the washington crapitals in the pacific division. A bunch of talentless goons with god awful inconsistent goaltending is the reason why they haven't won a cup in 30 yrs.
It is because that jerk named Brett Hull played for them. Brett Hull turned on his own country and I hope Brett Hull dies. Weather he dies from getting shot by an angry Canadian or dies from getting into a car crash.V 7 Comments
They Play dirty then pay off the NHL refs to look the other way at their penalties
I don't understand it at all. These are real hockey fans, there are NO BAND WAGONNERS.
I hate them so much. - JustinR889219
They are okV 2 Comments
Those guys suck
Why are they even in the legue
They are in the league because there are not many canadian teams you idiots. not shut up.
They suck and brad marchang is my boy
Les Goons. Even legendary coach Scotty Bowman called them a goon-hockey team. Growing up in the Buffalo area, hands-down, one of the dirtiest teams I ever saw play in the early- to mid-1980s. Hunter, Marois, Gillis, Kimble, Kumpel, Eagles, Donnelly, Zemlak, Picard---not only did the other Adams Division teams hate them, they were just disliked around the NHL, period. You know you've made an infamous name for yourself when Flyers fans hate you, and the Flyers and Nordiques rarely played each other. The Stastnys were no choirboys, either---Peter used to swing his stick like a machete behind the play, or after the ref blew the whistle. I hated the Nerd-Geeks with a passion, and that team STILL leaves a bad taste in my mouth to this day. And their jerseys were butt-ugly, too. I even disliked them after they went to Denver, and I always found myself automatically cheering for Detroit during the Red Wings/Avs rivalry of the 1990s. I want the Nords to come back to Quebec City, just so I can ...more
Do not exist anymore
There not bad, they might start this year I know this is Qucbec's second NHL Team but I know the Nordiques are not bad there starting next year
When the 12 year sucky team moves out and finally does good in WPG. Kinda like the rams moving to la
They don't even exist anymore
Do not exist anymore
Every time they played Buffalo there were always fisticuffs and full-on brawls. I never liked them; however, I respected them (unlike, say, Quebec). They were a scrappy bunch. I always expected an intense physical game whenever the two teams met. But that's how the old Adams Division was back then.
The Whalers probably had the sweetest fanbase. They did not deserve to move - DoroExploro13

Wate Philadelphia dos not have two teams
The Pittsburgh Pirates were an American professional ice hockey team in the National Hockey League (NHL), based in Pittsburgh from 1925–26 to 1929–30. The nickname comes from the baseball team also based in the city. - Wiki
NOW, they did move their team to Philadelphia to the Philadelphia Quakers.
i'm just adding them for historical reasons. You can go online to https://www.hockey-reference.com/boxscores/ and look up their game from their time period.
There already is a Quakers vote listed hear, but I just wanted to add this anyway for more info.
They played alright during their time period, but they never won a cup. They never even won a single Conference or Division round.
Draper's face is too soft.
Pretty much the only thing Blackhawks fans and Blues fans will agree on
Do I need to go on? Why do people even respect this team? They disrespect their captain, have a terrible stadium, in a terrible city to fit with the 90's Utah Jazz like of a team.
Well at least they are near canada and won a cup in 2007. I swear it's like a 10 minute drive from windsor to detroit.V 14 Comments
My favorite team but they got left out and want to see why people hate them.
Honestly, who could hate the Jackets? They're the league's lovable idiots.
Also my favorite team.
