Hendricks is not doing that and that's what an energy guy does.

On the flip side he has been pretty good on the PK from what I have seen so I'm good there. I just think he is redundant but here's the thing, if the team is winning and he's doing things we can't see behind closed doors to keep the team loose or fired up, maybe he was worth the money.
Nystrom with 26 hits ... Nystrom with 23 ... both in the top 40 forwards across the league in that category. Hendricks with five minor penalties is tied for 18th among NHL forwards (still behind Weber's total and only one ahead of Fisher who has a couple of penalties at critical moments).
