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.
It's not that I want to run the guy out of town. It's just been something the kid has had issues with this year. I wasn't even going to give him heck for the Jagr play as it was Jagr. The fact is this kid is lost in his own end and if it continues he will get benched like Hall did. It's a part of the process.
