Everyone hates Lapierre?

Ever since that elbow on Lapierre, I've noticed most fans of other teams saying he deserved it because he's "such a dirty player."

Pierre McGuire also mentioned on TSN how most players hate Lapierre for the way he plays.

My question is since when is Lapierre a dirty player? I don't notice him player dirty at all. I mean yeah he's VERY annoying because of how aggressive he is on the forecheck but I don't notice cheap shots.

Where is this all coming from? It's like he's universally regarded as megadirty by all kinds of (whining) other fans. He plays a gritty game but I'm wondering where all the "dirtiest player in the league" talk came from.

The Crosby butt end like 2 years ago?
