The Stanley Cup Finals really showed fans that it was possible to hate a team, player or entire fanbase more than anything else in the world.
The Canucks took so much heat for their on-ice antics and off-ice "arrogance" during the final. It was really humorous to read and listen to some of the things that people were saying.
As a Vancouver-ite myself, I can't help but support the hometown boys when the team is in the Finals. Though a Los Angeles Kings fan at heart, there is always room to support the team that calls Vancouver home. Was a lot of the hate born out of jealousy? For sure. Did people want their beloved NHL franchise to be in the Canucks' position? Absolutely.
In honour of the massive amount of hatred sent towards the Vancouver Canucks, their fans and the city in general, I will take a look at the 12 most hated players currently playing in the National Hockey League.
