Living on New York, and seeing primarily Eastern Conference games, I thought the Devils were by far the team that cried the most. Yet, another contender has emerged.

The Detroit Red Wings put up quite a challenge to the Devils for the title.

Every time I see one of the Wings players hit the ice, he's looking around for the officials and crying for a call; especially Tomas Holmstrom. This guy gets in everyone's face around the net, gets his gloves in the faces of other players, slashes in front of the net, and he's crying.

Zetterberg and Franzen come in a close second. Third place would have to go Pavel Datsyuk. 

These guys have definitely learned something from their coach Mike Babcock. It's just funny how the dirtier the team, the more crying they do.

This team gets away with throwing picks and interfering with opposing players. Kronwall constantly leaves his feet when throwing hits.

Hossa dives left and right. Yet, the Wings are the first ones to cry when a call doesn't go their way.

Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay would be ashamed to play with these guys.

Between the Devils and the Red Wings, who are both supposedly tough teams, I really don't know who is worse, but it is a very close race.
