Something Fun to Lighten the Mood: Worst 'Canes Player of All Time

So whaddya think, Caniacs? Time for The Captain to start getting under some folks' skin? I don't have Rosie to wail on right now (although he appears in the jump) so I thought I'd start soliciting feedback on our all-time worst professional hockey players to wear the sightless eye. I guess there's no real limitations in terms of how long ago we should go, or why we don't like them, etc., but we all have our favorite goats. Here's some to get us started...

Tomas "The Big Mistake" Kaberle - someone in another fanpost reminded me that we actually went out and got this guy in a very hyped "solution" to our power play problems. Of recent memory, Kabs -- who made his brother look like a speed skater -- disgraced the RBC moreso than any player I can remember over the past few years.

Anton "Clueless" Babchuk - I don't think I can ever remember a player who was out of position so regularly as this guy. He had a helluva shot on the power play, but aside from that I cringed watching him run around in his own end.

Sergai "SHOOT!" Samsonov - many a Caniac went hoarse screaming at this little chucklehead skating, skating, skating with the puck and never shooting. He had talent, but so under-utlized it that he basically took up a roster spot.

Chad "Babyface" LaRose - Rosie is a personal punching bag of mine, and here's why. He can't effectively forecheck; passes when he should shoot; shoots when he should pass; shoots ALWAYS straight into the goalie's logo; is extremely weak on the puck; and takes untimely penalties. That said, he's a fan favorite because of his backstory and hustle. Go figure.

Sandis "Uh-Oh" Ozolinsh - this guy was a disaster all the way around. He was so over-hyped coming here it was ridiculous.

Anyways, that's enough to get us all started. And please note, I have left out Aaron Ward 2.0 and Cory Stillman 2.0 out of respect for their earlier contributions to the franchise.
