Before we signed Nichol, he was also known to pick up dumb penalties. Having that faceoff role player is important, and you can't just assume a Konopka signing is going to end up hurting the Sharks.

Eager's impact was foreseeable, because he was brought in here to hit people. If Konopka is leaned on for a more specific defensive role, I don't see a problem.
