Not even sure why this is coming up now. He took a hooking penalty in the middle of a defensive zone scramble in front of the net. Big deal.
So he takes "fewer" penalties now.... but he just had a game where he took 4? He did nothing because he was so worked up and emotional. Not a team leader in my books. There is passion and then there is wrecklessness.
