Which team hates us the most
Posted: Tue Aug 24, 2004 11:23 am
I know that Colorado has the most current hate on for us, but which franchise hates us the deepest, and why?

Well Colorado maybe, but lets be honest it's very rare for anyone to really hate each other anymore. GMs all talk regulairly and the players don't take the rivalry off the ice.

I am going with St. Louis .... yes the Moore thing was a big issue but I think both teams would probably like to forget about it. Colorado IMO would be considered a large rivalry, not necessarily the team that hates the 'Nucks the most .... generally when those two teams play against each other it is a good hard hitting up and down game. Even Sakic said that both teams enjoy playing that type of game.
The St. Louis games always seems dirty and chippy ... lots of cheap shots and alot of big ego's as well ie. Tkachuks, Weights, Pronger etc. Where is Mellanbyequalsgrit .... ??

I'm going with Minny.
Even with the Moore thing, Colorado has their deepest rivalry with the Red Wings.
We as a club are still reaching to the level where Colorado is (multiple division chmapionships, dangerous in the playoffs more often than not, usually among the faves for the Cup)
Minny on the other hand, is reaching to be where we are. Always a lock for the playoffs, consistently pretty good team. They all hate Matt Cooke, they all hate Ruutu, htey all hate Bertuzzi.
I think Minny focuses on us more that Colorado does.

Not for you, not for me, but for beer.

Gotta go with Colarado on this one. The whole Steve Moore thing is too fresh in people's minds. If the Moore thing never happened, I'd go with Minny.

i said minnesota. i think the colorado players have forgotten about "the incident". or at least put it past them. but minny hates us with a passion. it just cant be described.
its like us with detroit after they beat us in the playoffs. do you remember how everyone would boo when chelios touched the puck?
now think back to how much minny boos when bert has the puck....
no other team does that

Minnesota. I still remember what Bertuzzi said I believe going into game 6 something like "You Minnesota fans my as well just go home because you are wasting your time coming and watching your team go home". I don't know exactly, but I am sure someone on here does. That was a classic.

I remember him saying "don't both buying tickets for game six" I believe.

I'd go with Colorado because of Mr. Broken Neck. After all, Bertuzzi could have killed him.... if more of his teammates dogpiled on top of him.

Lol, thanks man. Yeah, that's what he said. Like I said, I wasn't sure of what he had said, but thanks for correcting me.
That was classic. It definitely got under the fans' skin and pissed 'em off. That's why I still believe that Minnesota is the team that hates the 'Nucks the most!
