Say what you want about JJ's hockey sense, but the guy has the attitude of a champion and puts it all out on the ice every night. This is from a Kings fan.
Last game I attended, he was out for the full two minute PK and waived off at least one offered change. He's really proven to be a leader, here. Can't argue with the common wisdom about him before he arrived, but he's been a different player for the Jackets.
He's was pretty awful on the Kopitar and Richards goals though. Physically, JJ can go 30+ every night, but if you could afford to you wouldn't want him to
I have no complaints with his play on either of those goals. On the Kopitar goal, Erixon got caught flat footed on the blue line while Mason let in a softie. The Richards goal was one that Savard would like to have back. He was seen smashing his stick on the way to the bench.
For playing 69:13 the last two games, JJ looked pretty sharp
