I'm not a Bieksa hater like some of my fellow Canuck fans. He's inconsistent and has some blemishes in his game, but he can bring some positive things. He's a smooth skater who's good at getting shots through to the net either for a goal or a rebound, and when he throws down he can be quite a good scrapper.
The issue is sometimes he takes too many risks with the puck and gets caught running around, and he doesn't really have the same nasty streak that he used to.
He is also inexplicably still on the PK even though he was statistically by far the worst PKer in the whole league last year. I think the hate for Bieksa is not just because of Bieksa himself but because the coaching staff is insistent on using him in situations that he doesn't handle well.
