For us older (and decrepit) people, he's a modern day Tom Bladon.
You didnt convert, I just cant stand him as a player.

I wouldnt say irrational hate. I never liked him as a player and these posters enamoured by his offensive numbers who put him on a pedestal above and beyond our many defensemen who are better has turned the dislike into a hate. He is what he is, a PP specialist who has no defensive acumen and poor skating. He has a #5 D on a good team who will solidify your PP but should not be in your top 4, nor be relied upon for heavy defensive minutes.
