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.
I am a Bieksa hater, but I actually recognize that my constant yelling at the TV is largely a result of confirmation bias. When I think Bieksa, I think mistakes -- and so mistakes is what I see. I also see a number of good plays Bieksa, but I dismiss them as anomalies... or sarcastically compliment the little guy. But really he's just a high risk, high reward player with certain intangibles.
