Watching the Pittsburgh Penguins continuing to win in the playoffs is torture for Philadelphia Flyers fans, especially when it’s these individual guys.
This postseason has been tough. I did not have very high hopes for the Philadelphia Flyers, so losing in the first round wasn’t so bad.
The bad part is watching the tornado the Pittsburgh Penguins have become. The team looked like shambles earlier this season, but a coaching change has had miraculous results. They have been fantastic since January, and continue to steamroll teams in the playoffs.
There are a number of reasons of why every Flyers fans will hate the Penguins. I can’t think of all them now, but much of the time it simply comes down to players that drive you crazy.
On the other hand, I can hate a player win or lose. Sometimes it doesn’t even have to be justified, or even make sense! (Some may say that about all my writing actually.) With apologies to former Penguins players deserving of plenty of hate (James Neal, Tyler Kennedy, Jarkko Ruutu, Matt Cooke, etc.), let’s start the hate train of the most detestable current Penguins players!
