Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. If he doesn't make the check and the player scores, HF crucifies him. If he makes the check and the puck bounces to our player or into a neutral spot, HF loves the play. Instead, it bounces right to wide open Jagr but nobody asks where his checker was?

As for his penalties... in my mind he's getting the rookie treatment, and bad. Probably even worse than normal because of his fleury celebration. The cross check call on him was soft, and in the third he should have drew a call bringing the puck over the Dallas blue line.
