He just finished a season with 307 penalty minutes. That's double Nichol's career high, and over 4 times higher than what he had in PIM's the year before the Sharks signed him. That makes him FIRST in penalty minutes by almost 100 minutes. He'd have to take the faceoff and be ordered directly to the bench in the hopes that someone didn't skate across his eyesight and he lunges at him with his gloves dropping.

McLellan will put up with that about as long as he put with Eager's idiocy after game 2.
