I hate Wendel Clark, he was a useless goon that only has recognition around the league because he was the best player on terrible teams. He is everything hockey shouldn't be, he was not smart, he was not skilled and most of all he was ugly and I didn't like his hair.

Conklin. Partly because I felt sick to my stomach most of the time when he was in net but even when he wasn't being useless I didn't like him. Some weird irrational hatred...I actually feel a little bit bad for how much I don't like him.

Do you hate everyone who's ever been in a hockey fight?

How can you say Wendel Clark was a useless goon? He wasn't even a goon. The guy was a pretty good player in his prime. I suppose he scored 300 goals despite having "no skill" as you put it?

Bertuzzi has 300 goals playing in the dead puck era. Obviously Wendel wasn't terrible he was well above average, but I just never liked him for some reason.

Btw I like Crosby and he gets into fights.

Crosby is an *******

Bertuzzi has 303 goals in 1093 games, Clark scored 330 in 793 games and his career was cut short because he played hard all the time and sacrificed his body to get the job done. If Bert played with half the heart that Wendel played with we would have a much better team and even more success than we have had

Hmmmm....let me see..... I think everyone here, knows who I hated the most, followed closely by Joanna Franzine...but for those of you who dont recall, it is Jiri Piddler....

Our top 2 goal scorers last year. Personally I don't hate any Wings but I sure don't like all the ignorant posters on Wings' forums

No doubt Crosby is an ******, Crosby is also one of the most talented NHL player of all time.

And Clark's career was cut short because he did not play the game smartly. His numbers were drastically inflated.due to the era he played in, no way are John Ogrodnick's 400 goals as impressive as let's say Marian Hossa's 400 goals. Maybe Clark would have been a good player he if actually lead his team on the ice, instead of wasting 28% of the games in the penalty box.

The team choked....CuJo.had the lowest GAA in the playoffs that season. Goalies arent expected to score goals as well as stop them....

You do realize what your referring here can't actually be referable. Cujo, only played 4 games in those playoffs. Other goalies played more then him so you can't refer to that and even in the series Cujo got outplayed by Giguerre. Our team didn't choke, we had chances that we're unbeleivable saves by Giguerre, he stepped up when he needed to and Cujo just couldn't compete at the same level.

Giguere really took advantage of the NHL turning a blind eye to growing goalie equipment size to help facilitate parity. He really looked like the Michelin man

Clark played in the dead puck era which started when Bettman became commissioner. He promoted the drastic increase in size of goalie equipment and obstruction as a means of facilitating parity and giving new expansion teams a better chance of winning and was very successful with that as Florida made it to the SCF in only their 2nd year of existence (year of the Rat (Bettman)] and ended after the last lockout when they decided to call obstruction calls again.

So you like one of the most despicable characters hockey has ever known (right up there with Avery, Bettman and Bobby Clarke) and hate one of the most upstanding the game has ever seen. I think that says something about your character

Unless he is a despicable character like Bettman, Crosby or Avery, I don't understand why you would hate any hockey players especially ones that play on your team.

I mentioned Bert earlier but I don't hate him, I just think he is detrimental to the team's success as is proven by the team's record with and without him over the years

What a great character Wendel Clark was? I'm pretty sure he's the one that got a match penalty for slashing one of the NHL's nicest and cleanest players(sarcasm don't kill me, I hate Bryan Marchment) in the throat.

I think Sports Illustrated compared Wendel Clark very well with Alex Burrows, very similar players.

Burrows can't go toe to toe with the leagues toughest and he can't score 40 goals. Burrows is a pest, Clark was one of the best hockey players of his era.

Couldn't disagree more...

He was the heart & soul of the Leafs...Major props to the guy for playing "Old School" hockey; could score goals, and stood up for himself, and teammates.

His last few seasons in the NHL were nothing to write home about; a bad back, and multiple knee injuries really slowed him down due to his style of play...I'll be the 1st to admit that he was rather useless in his stint as a Red Wing back in 1999...That said he's 1 of my favorite players of all time.

Wendel was a great player

Spot on!

Relying on anything from "SI" to back your point of view is rather weak when considering how poorly "SI" covers anything relating to the NHL.

I bet you get your salsa recipes from "Popular Mechanics"?

That's got to be a joke. Burrows is a yapping, hair pulling, finger biting, d-bag. Clark was a tough player who backed up anything he did on the ice.

I didn't like Clark on the Wings but only because I hated him so much when he was on the Leafs.
