Now if you have examples of us condemning the guy and hating on him before the signing and then have examples of those same posters then willing to give him a chance then you'd have a point.
But as Artemis said, other than Jack Edward's rant about him in the playoffs... I don't think anyone thought anything of the kid. Certainly not enough to hate his guts (other than wearing the Habs sweater for a season.)
Lots of people were saying what a bust he was and useless hockey player, spot picker, when he had the Krejci fight and Boychuk run in the play-offs.

Like I said, I will root for him, but had you asked people their thoughts on him, it would have been an overwhelmingly number that would want him nowhere near here before he signed. Now that he's here, seems like people forget the past overnight.
