When the Flyers traded him, I thought "Thank goodness". Not because he was a bad player or because I wanted to get rid of him, but because I thought he didn't have a future in the organization anymore.
I thought trading him was the best move for both parties and that he might do good with a different organization, a fresh start if you want to say that.
However, I was also a bit wary of his senselessly aggressive nature which earned him quite a reputation so far, and apparently this fear of him practically getting useless as a result of that as leagues would either not let him play or when he played be so closely watched by the officials that it would be better to just leave him on the bench or out of the roster at all.
This worst case scenario seems to be happening right now and to say the least I'm not really surprised.
The Blackhawks also seem to have drafted such a hothead in Kyle Beach. I wonder how that guy will work out for them.
