This thread confirms what I believe about typical hockey fans. They don't know **** about good defensive hockey players. When you boil it down, they really only notice forced and unforced mistakes. Mistakes lead to goals and scoring chances so when there aren't any mistakes happening, it's boring to them.

he hit 30 several times in jersey before coming to pitt..and regarding physical play im not expecting massive hits, but atleast a willingness to separate the puck from the man.

I think of that play every time a puck carrier is coming straight at Martin now. What a shameful "effort" that was.
