The "casual fan" that will think Shelley will be a fan favorite do not post on message boards and have very little knowledge of the game.

The reason Carcillo is a fan favorite is because he actually has SKILL. He has very underrated hands and has great placement on his shot. In addition, he can knock people out and skates with ton of emotion.

The only thing Shelley will be good for is 3 minutes a game where he coasts around the ice hoping the other team has a heavyweight willing to fight him. If that is the type of player who will be your favorite, kudos to you kind sir.
Turco isn't gonna lead this team to the Cup.
