People get caught up in their emotions when it comes to this player and fail to see why two coaches have kept him in the lineup.
He's probably one of the worst fighters I've ever seen at the NHL. Maybe
worst. But he's a solid reliable player who does enough of the little things 5 on 5 and on the PK that earn a coaches confidence.
He absolutely does stick up for his mates. But he folds about as bad as any NHLer I've ever seen as soon as the gloves drop.
It's nothing new for hockey fans. Big guy who can't fight = soft/hated.
