Whether or not the penalty he takes gets scored on is irrelevant, IMO. Yes it got the conversation started again here, but I personally am not concerned about that one penalty. I didn't see it, I can't know what it was like. What is concerning is what you are mentioning. It's clear that he is very easily goaded into taking dumb selfish penalties. With that many you have to be. Taking dumb selfish penalties is plain unacceptable at any level, nevermind at the pro level. Teams have started to key on it. And honestly I think refs have too. Last year when I saw him more it was clear he was getting the benefit of the doubt as a rookie cause he was getting away with alot that should have been called. It looks more and more like he is developing a reputation and those things stick with refs. He had major question marks about his head in junior (his trade in junior was in very curious circumstances where one might ponder it was not a hockey motivated trade) and while it seemed like last year he had been starting to smarten up it seems to be getting worse and worse this year. That is not a good trend for a guy that's now 22 and should be starting to grow out of that stuff.
