When you're the only guy on the team that does it, maybe it's not so funny but seen as arrogant. Not to say he's an arrogant kid, but perception is everything.

Actions in practice affect how his teammates may or may not protect him on the ice during the season. They're related.

I've seen Yak celebrating before, don't have any problem with it and he did it several times in the prospects camp where he scored at will. The fans eat it up and last I checked this is entertainment. Some loser gets asshurt because he can't score a goal in a million years its his own problem.

Good on Horc to say its OK if thats what happened.

Celebrate good times.
Also loved it at the prospects camp. But that was a bunch of kids, of which he was top dog.
He's playing with professionals now some of whom are twice his age. These are guys he should be willing to bend over backwards to earn their respect. I think that starts with showing some humility.
God, when did I become that guy.
