I just watched an old TSN video about the top 10 agitators in NHL history and it made me wonder who the best agitator in Canucks history would be.

Just wanna make this clear: this is not necessarily the toughest player in Canucks history. It is the player who was best at getting under the other team's skin.

I came up with a list of several players who could be considered. Edit: Added Esa Tikkanen.

It's tough for me. I'd say the top two are Lapierre and Ruutu, but I'll go with Jarkko Ruutu.

I voted cooke, but it would be so close between him, burrows, and ruutu

I went with Gino, he was extremely good at getting players off of there game, not only did he have pretty good wheels for an enforcer he was tough as nails.

Esa Tikkanen.

Probably best to ever play. 100 regular season games, and 6 playoff games in a Canuck uniform.

Gotta go with the NHL's all time leader in penalty minutes, Dave "the Tiger" Williams.

For getting under the other teams skin it's a toss up between Ruutu and Burrows. Gino had his moments though, no doubt.

Jarkko Ruutu for sure...

Matt Cooke was up there but not as bad, probably the dirtiest though

Gino Odjick was definetly the scariest and most intimidating

I don't think Bieksa is an agitator at all. He doesn't start sh**, he finished sh**

Missing from the list...

Tim Hunter

Two of the moments I remember he once bit off Ti Domi's glove to draw a fighting major in a scrum against the Jets, in another game he took a faceoff staring at the opposing player and never at the puck or linesman.

Esa Tikkanen definately all time pest if you look at the non-Canucks play, Tim as a Canuck as a pure agitator. Ruutu from the list (something about the Fins).
