I've never seen such a dumb, selfish penalty but he seems to have curbed some of that in Dallas.

I don't know how anyone wouldn't like his tenacity, and we all know he's gotta play on the edge,but it's my hope for him that he can stay effective without too much 'drama'.
He was terrible in October, and he just never won piqued over which is fine. The transformation he's made since that point is honestly unbelievable.

He almost lost me when he had the one game making several poor decisions and selfish acts only to go down to Texas for the weekend and do the same damn thing in both of those games ... including late penalties ... one that directly led to a PP goal against and TX losing the game.

I was honestly pissed they brought him back up immediately after that, but he's hasn't done it again shockingly. Good on him for fixing the problems despite Dallas being boneheads and rewarding the behavior. Those 3 games (1 NHL/2 AHL) were pathetic.
