Ah, yes. The Jeff Halpern theorem.

Throw in all his dumb plays and bad penalties and you have a guy people want nothing to do with. That's how I see it.

I was at game 2 vs. Ottawa when he just turtled up and let Carkner wail on him. For a man of his size, he's a HUGE (insert alternate name for female dog).
So you would have preferred he fought Carkner, for what purpose?

And this discussion is incomplete without mentioning him fighting Jody Shelley in defense of a teammate.
