He does a lot of things well. He skates well for a guy his size aside from the falling down bit, he creates tons of space out there, crashes the net, is good along the walls, can score 20-30 goals a season pretty routinely, is quite good in his own zone, works his ass off, will fight and agitate, and from all accounts keeps things loose on the ice and in the room.
He's the perfect role player and we've been tremendously lucky to have him.
It's probably because even though everything you've said I agree with, he CONTINUES to take stupid penatly after stupid penatly. Even with his play being a career year so far, his parade to the penatly box is unacceptable. If he stopped doing that and kept playing like his is, he'd become a fan favorite.
