Carcillo doesn't even take many minor penalties anymore. At least not under Laviolette so I'm not sure what you're trying to say when saying "he takes penalties".
Even so, if he does it by agitation I'm fine. Feigning a high stick that was far away enough that even I could see he was never hit while I was sitting up in the crowd from 300 feet away is unforgivable, especially from a fan base that stresses that Crosby, captain of our biggest rival team, is the "Holy Diver." He was fine during the regular season, but started doing it big time in the playoffs. Everyone will have a different opinion on the matter, but for me, I don't care who he is or who he plays for, diving and feigning is never acceptable sportsmanship in my eyes.
