In response to lucdufour's comment:
Fighting aside, I think he has played quite well this year....and has been a good complement to Paille and Campbell. 4th line has played well, right????? He has kept up with Campbell and Paille in my estimation. I have not seen too many things he has done negatively...and has scored a few goals to boot. Don't forget that he only gets about 6+ min of ice time per game...whaddya expect?
I was one of the ones defending him on a turnover that cost the bruins a game. I think there are better options. I get his leadership. You used detroit as a team that needs a tough guy. They showed over the last decade plus why you dont need one. Take a dumb goon penalty and we will kill you on the pp. i dont recall many if any of their guys being a head hunted target or get dooped into a brawl. They simply skate away.
