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...
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.
