I won't say most because I can't prove it, but judging from fan message boards, a good portion of Flames fans have completely soured on him.

About the best praise he's getting there is that he wouldn't be so bad if he was used better.

Not to mention the less concrete knocks on him, such as the belief that he can't handle the pressure in Calgary, that he doesn't show up when it counts the most, and the obvious glaring hole on his resume (having never played a single playoff game).
He's an above average d-man getting paid like an all-star...I'm not saying I wouldn't touch him, but I wouldn't pay the price it would cost to bring him over.
