Is Avery the Most Disliked Player In Hockey?

In response to the "Top 10 Most Disliked People in Sports" poll released by Forbes (where no hockey player is listed), Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy asks his readers who they believe are the most disliked players in the NHL. And of course Sean Avery is at the top of the list...

Sean Avery, New York Rangers: Even if this wasn't alphabetical, he's the top of the list. From his behavior on the ice as a preeminent pest to his legendary diss of his peers and former girlfriends, he craves the role and plays it better than anyone in hockey. He's also lobbied in the past that the NHL needs to market its villains; something we actually agree with.

...the longer Avery is at the top of this list, the longer he will be an effective player for the Rangers.
