With the good comes the bad: Mount Suckmore nominations sought

The guys at Puck Daddy have had their running Mount Puckmore series this summer - four faces of each and every NHL franchise. The major players, the major personalities, the guys identified with the franchise.

Jon Jordan was the Lightning blogger asked to pick Mount Puckmore for the Lightning. Every name can be debated to one extent or another, and every name can be agreed with whole heartedly at the same time.

But on the flip-side of this, fans around the league are producing their lists of the negative. The guys who embody the bad aspects of their team/franchise. The guys who personify the malignant side of their team's legacy. For every vaulted Mount Puckmore member or storied name for a franchise, there are a multitude of candidates that may earn a nomination for Mount Suckmore. We'll send you over to Japers Rink to see just one example.

I'm not going to lay out a definitive list. I'd like fan input on everyone and everything. At the same time, I thought it was important to mention candidates for Mount Suckmore should not be guys who played only a handful of games in the NHL, or never stuck. That's a bit unfair.

Also, team history spans a lot further back than the last three seasons. Citing only personnel with the club from recent days is ignoring a much longer team history. That's not to say there aren't immaculate horrors from the past few seasons, that's just trying to make the point that bad spans further back with the Lightning than the last handful of years.

So, here's what I'd like: use comments to nominate bad performances / people in team history. Other members should use the REC function on comments to show support for a particular nomination (or leave a comment in support). While it's easy just to name-names, please don't do that. Back up / flesh out anyone you suggest with a little more substance (stats, history) that backs up your claim.
