Most Hated NHL Teams


The Top Ten

1 Boston Bruins Boston Bruins The Boston Bruins are a professional ice hockey team based in Boston, Massachusetts. The Bruins compete in the National Hockey League as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

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.

Dirtiest, most hypocritical team in the league. Their team consists of snakes and goons with a hypocritical coach. To hell with Lucic, Chara, Thornton and that rat Marchand. The only thing good about the Bruins is the pair of top notch goalies that play for them.

Hockey is a physical game and the Bruins Have a Great Team and have very Tough Players. The Coach may be hyper but very good. Stanley Cup Champions 2010- 2011, Eastern Conference Champions 2012-2013, Presidents Trophy Champions 2013-2014. They are just very physical but get the job done at the end of the day. - newenglander1

Go watch Lucic fight on youtube. How many of those fights are him jumping in as the third man with a guy already dancing with someone else? Watch Marchand in a scrum trying to poke guys in the eye, scratch a face, pull an ear. Chara trying to injure Pacciorety was sickening. Other teams have their issues, their cheap players; the Bruins have a culture of cheap and dirty play. In that regard, guess it pays to have your owner sitting as the chairman of the board of governors when discipline is being handed out.

Burn teddy bear wearing bruins jeresy. Bruins fans this is for you bitches.

2 Philadelphia Flyers Philadelphia Flyers

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.

Even the USSR was afraid of the bullies in the 70s

Flyers are the most dirty hockey team in the NHL. The play cheap shots and their fans are just like the players, they are nuts. Honestly, I think that Flyers should top the list and not the penguins, the penguins are hated not because they play dirty but people are jealous about them. But Flyers never won the stanely cup in the last decade, so nobody is jealous about them.

Whoever wrote about the Flyers fans being nuts, thanks. So your calling me nuts. Your probably a Pengins or Rangers fan. They suck.

3 Montreal Canadians

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

I think the main reason why the Bruins are listed as "#1 most annoying fan base" and Montreal is only #4 is because there are probably far more Canadiens fans than any other team in the league. (Kinda like Yankees fans--it's easy to side with a team that has won so many championships in the past.) So, there are more people who would vote for the Canadiens' current biggest rival as the "most annoying fan base." Every team has it's jerk fans but the bigger the fanbase = the more jerks you'll have in it

The Montreal Canadiens should be way, way higher on this list than 7th. Are you kidding me? Never mind the fact that refs ALWAYS seem to cater to their continuous whining, they also ignore the constant slashing, cross checking, holding of the stick, falling down, instigating and then refusing to answer the bell. But then you have to listen to them talk about how much class and dignity they have, and how they play the game the right way... Is that like the Ice Capades? I'd put them #1 without question.

This should be number one on the most hated list.

4 Pittsburgh Penguins Pittsburgh Penguins The Pittsburgh Penguins are an American professional ice hockey team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that competes in the National Hockey League.

After Mario LeMieux's playing career ended, this team almost left Pittsburgh. It took Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Marc-Andre Fleury to keep the team in the Steel City. Because when these players came, attendance went up because of bandwagon fans, who didn't care one bit about the team before Crybaby Crosby and his supporting cast came along.

Gary Bettman, who should have never been allowed to set foot on a hockey rink, sucks up to them. After the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals (where Detroit beat Pittsburgh), before presenting the Conn Smythe Trophy, Bettman said "Let's first congratulate the Detroit Red Wings, AND THE PITTSBURGH PENGUINS!, on great seasons, and a terrific Stanley Cup Final." The next year, when Pittsburgh beat Detroit, he never even mentioned to congratulate the Red Wings on their season, just immediately praising the Penguins.

Fan's of other teams seem to love generalizing penguins fans but there's really horrible fans for almost every fanbase I can't speak for the attendance not being from Pittsburgh and all but I did support the team before Crosby came in the picture and real fan's don't wish career ending injuries on players or call others players whiners but make every excuse in the book when their team loses a game.

They play dirty and then whine when they get checked. They try to injure other teams when they are out of a game. Crosby is the worst whiner and hypocrite in the league today and he is always taking cheap shots himself. Their fans are idiots, half of who don't know the game, the other half are married to their cousins.

The Pengens deserve to be number 2 not 4

5 Toronto Maple Leafs Toronto Maple Leafs The Toronto Maple Leafs are a Canadian professional ice hockey team based in Toronto, Ontario, that competes in the National Hockey League.

If the leafs had a competitive squad, I'm sure they would top this poll. Considering they haven't played a single playoff game in 6 years and Tucker and Domi are both long gone it's amazing people still care enough to put them in the top 4.

You idiots just hate them because they are not doing so well right know I really hate people who are like oh they are a great team I'm going for them or you guys might also be like oh I hate that team but I am going for then anyway I mean what the Frick? Don't go for the teams you hate just because they are doing fine just go for the teams you actually like

The only reason they aren't the most hated is because they've been so horrendous for so long that pity has begun to set in.

The leafs are getting there. 1st overall draft pick Auston Matthews 4 goals in his first game. Kadri, Marner, Komarov Frederik Andersen
there coming YO all leaf fans wear u at?

6 Vancouver Canucks Vancouver Canucks The Vancouver Canucks are an ice hockey team based in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

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.

There is no other team I love to see lose like Vancouver. They are a bunch of winey babies

Clueless cannots bragging about mediocrity

7 New York Rangers New York Rangers

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.

Easy I like the flyers and the Rangers beat the flyers so Flyers roll Rangers droll

The FANS are so arrogant. They think lundqvist is God! Even though he has never one a stanley cup. They can't admit that the Rangers have flaws. The Rangers are the most overrated team in the league!

You guys are the worst team in the NHL

8 Washington Capitals Washington Capitals

All of the comments are thumbs-downed because the caps are TOO GOOD! - GrapeJuiceK

The only reason they are good is because of Ovechkin, and there goalies are okay.

Washington and hockey really?

I hate them

9 Chicago Blackhawks Chicago Blackhawks

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.

Arrogant, bandwagon fans, most of whom don't know much of anything about this team prior to 2007. They think just because they're a strong team now, that their team has always been like this, and use their current streak to belittle all of the teams actually worthy of being in the NHL. Dirty team, nasty hits, and has paid off the officiates so much, that they are all practically blind to the illegal hits and plays this team makes. Chicago doesn't deserve a team.

Just a terrible abomination going into my mind! No other team I can think of has so many losses in a season! I think in 1945-46 they went 5-42-3! Only 13 points - eh? This is just a terrible abomination! Even a 36-game losing streak?

I love the blackhawks😍

10 Florida Panthers Florida Panthers The Florida Panthers are an American professional ice hockey team based in the Miami metropolitan area.

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.

I hate this team more than the bruins now. But I guess my oppinion does not matter so I will just shutup now.

The Contenders

11 St. Louis Blues St. Louis Blues The St. Louis Blues are a professional ice hockey team in St. Louis, Missouri. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

I mainly hate the Blues because of their fans. Not just any fans, their KID fans. They are obnoxious kids who scream at the top of their lungs, and Louie is a rip off of the Care Bears. Seriously, can't these kids just shut of for once?

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 still

A team with no Cups I don't hate them but they suck never won a cup. As a Hawks fan I hate Detroit because they are WORTHY RIVALS. The Blues are wanna be rivals. I think the Wild will have won a cup before this team. And Wild started in 2001. I don't hate them but I'm just saying they are trying to be rivals with Chicago. Go Hawks

Team totally sucks! It's anger-generating how you have outrageous fans of a team that hasn't even won the Stanley Cup, is located in a baseball city (hint- the Cardinals), ENOUGH SAID! The Blues fans are giving themselves the "blues", let's put 'em out of their misery- Dear NHL, relocate the ' team!

12 Los Angeles Kings Los Angeles Kings The Los Angeles Kings are a professional ice hockey team based in Los Angeles, California. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

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.

A boring no offense playing team that relies heavily on a stifling defense and goalie. Also, cheap tactics from players like Dustin Brown, Jordan Nolan, Kyle Clifford have made this team a loathsome one.

Cheap shots, sucker punches, flops and excessive whining make the over-rated LA Kings the most loathsome team in the NHL

I love la kings

13 Detroit Red Wings Detroit Red Wings The Detroit Red Wings are a professional ice hockey team based in Detroit, Michigan. They are members of the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League and are one of the Original Six teams of the league.

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.

14 Buffalo Sabers

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 up

Who spelled their name wrong?

This team sucks

17 Edmonton Oilers Edmonton Oilers The Edmonton Oilers are a professional ice hockey team based in Edmonton, Alberta. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

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.

They play dirty, have sucked since Gretzky, won so many lottery drafts, yet still can't win, they also probably get the lottery draft wins by banging the front office.

I'm a Capitals fan, but I want the oilers to become GOOD again! - GrapeJuiceK

Oilers suck!
They don't just suck they really SUCK!
I've got a joke:what do Edmonton oilers and grizzly bears have alike?

ANSWER: They both hibernate in the winter...HA HA HA! Lol

18 Tampa Bay Lightning Tampa Bay Lightning

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 hate this team. I hope they get kicked out and banished forever out of the nhl. I mean I know it's bad sportsmanship to say that but for 1 the lightning and panthers are both in florida. For two florida does not get hockey weather. They should focuse way more on football and baseball than hockey. And Steven Stamkos is probably there only Canadian player. All the others are russians slovakians americans and czlslovakians.

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.

I don't care about this team. However I hate every sunbelt team. And also DIE BETTMAN DIE!
