Didn't he get hurt after going on a scoring pace of like 10 goals in 13 games?

He's definitely frustrating though because he's not a good finisher from what I've seen of him.

For all the hate he receives, he has been clutch. SO winner against Calgary with the nice assist to Hagelin on his goal; awesome play to Brassard for the GWG against Detroit; GWG in a big game against the Islanders.

To me it just looks like he's trying TOO hard out there. Maybe a result of not getting regular shifts most of the year. All I know is that for $1M I've been really happy with what he's provided
I would have no issue with BP if he didn't take so many dumb ****ing penalties. I am willing to bet that his penalties have cost us more goals against then his EV + PP time goals for.
