Players who notoriously take bad penalties like SOB just seem to have it ingrained in them. They may be able to stop for a short while, but the pattern always comes back.
Kinda like Pacman & Britt getting into trouble.
I do like his 'toughness' but at this point his penalties are outweighing the positives. Give me Greg Zanon any day of the week.
