Ivanans is not being selfish when he takes those penalties in the offensive zone, he is not going out there and saying

"Let me hook someone or hold someones stick in our offensive zone"

The guy is just so much less talented than anyone else on the ice its going to lead to these types of penalties, its been happening for years and its never going to change, as long as he is playing a regular shift we are going to be killing dumb penalties and struggling to keep up when he is out there. Watching him play is like watching a Juco corner try and cover Larry Fitzgerald.

Lets be honest here, look at yesterday, Rangers scored 4 goals, two of them were off of stupid penalties in the offensive zone by our two worst players (Harrold and Ivanans), another one was when this line was on the ice and caught out of position.

If the Kings insist on rolling 4 lines, they need to drastically upgrade the 4th line.

Anyways, 4-2 is a nice start. Can't really complain too much.
