I agree…. and coach Q alluded to that when Carcillo was first acquired. I remember the fifthfeather blog did a breakdown on his penalties in the previous year, as a Flyer, Expecting the worse, the results were quite surprising.
Some here were concerned about his reputation, hence he was (and still is to some extent) chastised by some of the Hawk fan base - but it turns out he didn’t get his team (Flyers) in short-handed situations nearly as often as was thought. In fact, it was seldom… much of the time he was accompanied to the sin bin by an ops player. As a Hawk he has continued that trend on not costing his team due to bad penalties(fingers crossed). He has also drawn his share of ops penalties with his abrasive play and discipline.

I also thought the suspension he received in a Blackhawk uniform was based mainly on his reputation and was excessive to say the least.
