This is true, but I don't think it's very likely to happen.
He's playing on adrenaline, with a sense of desperation. He has gone from being scratched regularly to being traded for the lowest possible thing you can trade (save for "future considerations"); he's likely playing for his career right now.
I don't think his play will continue. He's a dirty player, and one who's prone to dumb penalties. Yes, he's an agitator, yes it was nice watching the flyers chase him around the rink, but I don't expect that to continue.
His effectiveness will dovetail, he'll get his face punched in a few more times, and I'll be thrilled to see him retire after being assigned to Hartford.
He's a stopgap while Dorsset is out. His "shiny new toy" popularity will wane with his first game costing penalty.
