He is dirty and brings very little positive it seems. Ott not far behind.
Kaleta is one of those kind of guys I'd love on my team, Avery obviously works really well for his team no matter how big of a dick he is, I love Ruutu for what he did for the Penguins, and Cooke is practically a pacifist compared to what fans in the Western Conference seem to paint him as...he certainly isn't the same player he was with the Canucks.
Ribeiro pisses me off for all the acting he's done, but I'd take him on my team in a millisecond without thinking.
Ott, he is a pretty good player and doesn't really need to play as dirty as he does. One of the funniest things I have seen in the past couple of years was when Boston just flat out destroyed Dallas with Ott and Avery pulling their antics last year. It backfired on them and it really was a thing of beauty.
Jarkko Ruutu for sure. As much as guys like Avery, Ott, Kaleta, Cooke, etc. might be annoying, they clearly have NHL ability and talent. Ruutu seems 100% focused on simply starting **** instead of helping his team win.
