POLL: Least Favorite (active) NHL Player?

With news coming down that Chris Pronger will be out 4-6 weeks (meaning he won’t face the Kings at Staples Center on December 30), there’s been an increased amount of anti-Pronger comments today on social media sites – namely facebook and twitter.

As the Kings are off today and it’s a relatively slow news period, let’s explore the Pronger issue. Is he the most hated man in the NHL?

The league has always had it’s villains – Craig Muni, Rob Blake, Theo Fleury, Patrick Roy and Doug Gilmour are just a few of the guys Kings’ fans have loved to hate over the past few decades.

But, what about now?  There are a host of players that could have been added to the poll below – all for their own individual and varying reasons. However, the guys listed are probably the top vote getters among active players.

So, who is your least favorite player in the NHL right now? For whatever reason(s) you have, who is he?

[UPDATE: Final poll results available after the jump. Who won – Pronger, Perry, Avery?]
