Carcillo has a huge following here in Phoenix. Probally had the second most number of Jerseys in the stands after Doan.
I never saw him lose a fight. He may not have won them all; but I never saw him lose.
His main problem, besides not scoring this year, was that he let his emotions get the better of him. With 10 minutes left in a 1 goal game or tie game, he was still trying to pick fights to get back at someone, resulting in penalty (or 2 if the refs added an unsportsmanlike). That stuff drove Gretzky crazy. I never understood why Gretz would even put him on the ice in the third period of a one goal game. Odds were better that he'd give the other team the winning power play than score or get into a fight with even penalties.
