I've met him a few times (dated one of my friends) and he is nice enough but very arrogant/cocky. But you can say that about most NHL players especially players from Boston

Maybe he was always sarcastic but he just always came off as a jerk to me. He also seems kind of rude and extra sensitive to criticism on Twitter. Perhaps that's just my perception.

He can come off as a bit of a dick. He's a great teammate but with the media and what not he's kind of an *******. Chirped a guy on twitte for his weight which caused a bit of a stir recently.

Whitney is the Penner version of a defenseman. I don't mean in the flabby pancake eater way but that when he is on and playing well he's an excellent player, for sure top 3 dman on a team type player. When he is playing badly he is a press box candidate.

He's also a bit of a flake but not in a bad way in my opinion.

Despite what people say about him (yes he hasn't had a good year), he is still a talented player and a trade to Boston might be the motivation he needs.

Please be true. Whitney is brutal and horrid defensively. That would be anti-Boston move if it happens.

We feel your pain here in Boston. The diabolical duo of Zanon and Corvo in the playoffs last year was something to be reckoned with.

Barker got cut by an AHL team during the lockout. Whitney is still a very good PP QB at the NHL level. He's very bad defensively and physically but can still contribute to a successful powerplay. Barker is terrible in every aspect of hockey.
