Well obviously if he got a minor every game he'd be out of the league. So surely some are majors. His detractors say a lot of them are bad penalties because they're useless after whistle face wipes and stuff like that. His supporters seem to say he cut that crap out last year. It doesn't sound to me like he gets a lot of hooking and grabbing penalties that a guy who can't play gets. Even though people say he can't stay with the higher end, quicker forwards. I say, how many big defenders can?

I agree, let's see how he plays. I don't think the Preds brought him in as some sort of enforcer or muscle, they obviously think he is a good defender with the benefit of some size. So that's fine with me.
