Malik walked a very thin line here in NY because he was a big defenseman who didn't play physical. Historically our fan base likes to get on big players who don't hit, fight or clear the front of the net. Fans tend to be more patient/forgiving with players who play physcial. If your a soft player you almost have to play mistake free hockey because if you don't everyone is waiting to jump on you. The technical term for this behavior is called the Willie Huber Condition.
