Carcillo is a punk. He has some talent but can't seem to get his head together enough to stop taking stupid penalties. I think Gretzky envisioned him as a "McSorley type" in Phoenix. A tough guy with some skill to back it up. Gretz actually asked him last off-season to try and curb some of his minor penalties and start working on his skill game, but still be an intimidator. That obviously didn't work (he had less PIM's, but also less goals and less total pts. last year than the year before) so they shipped him out.

He is somewhere between Ivanans and Avery. More skill than Ivanans (S*@#, I might have more skill than Ivan and I can't even skate.) but not as much as Avery, yet he's almost as volatile.

Oh yeah, I love that shot of Zeiler knocking him on his head. Great Pic!
