He didn't take stupid penalties and seemed to be able to play up to 10 minutes a game without getting exposed too badly. I would like to see someone bigger than him who can look after themselves on the roster too- not a 4th line fighter but rather a scary D.
I think his problem with his prior teams is that he was taking unecessary penalties and was a liability just because he was in the penalty box way too often. With the Habs I haven't seen any stupid penalties other than in his first game. I think on his first shift he took a stupid penalty, then I /facepalmed and he played decently well since for a tough guy.
