Yes, Tkachuk was so scary in the playoffs he lost three series being up 3-1
I don't know how good it is necessarily, but 228 PIM while scoring 52 goals shows that had he spent less time in the box he would have had more. Plus it at least shows you are involved on the ice, which we know Tkachuk was for sure. And no doubt he took some stupid penalties, but he had quite the edge to him back then as well and if you have that many PIM you are likely to get more room on the ice.
