Contact breeds contempt, and with contempt comes violence.
Hockey is the breeding ground for troublemakers who wish to take advantage of the ability to use their body as a weapon.
Some players thrive on infuriating other players and making life difficult for the opposition. They make it their business to get in people’s faces and force them to lose their cool.

The following list is my top 20 most hated players and why I hate them. Or love them. Either way, they pissed a ton of people off and smiled all the way to the bank.
Please enjoy and let me know what you think!
