2nd, he takes poorly timed, bad penalties. He cost ATL 5 goals in the 9-3 drubbing by Toronto, on a couple of REALLY dumb penalties. TML got one on a 4 min double minor that Eager took trying to goad Phaneuf into a fight. The Leafs then scored 4 goals on a 5 min major after Eager sucker-punched Armstrong.
3rd, there has been some talk that he's not all that well liked by the team. There is little to substantiate this, but after the Toronto game, I'd find it hard to believe that any of his teammates were on his side.
