I disagree, I think the majority of his hits to start the season, while hard hits, where clean in timing and where he was hitting guys.
I think his arms are starting to come up on his hits and I think he is starting to hit later and later.
I didn't say I hated him, I said I worried about him.
He can be a PIM machine and this team is not very good on the PK!
I actually like the way his line is playing, I just worry he is going to start living up to his reputation.
Perception is key here, you see his play one way (much like you saw my post as I hate him) and I see his play another way, worrisome on a team with bad special teams.
You have no problem with him crossing the line apparently, however I do.
That is where the difference lies. I think he far exceeded my expectations, but that doesn't mean I don't worry long term. Especially seeing as I Think his play is starting to resemble his play in seasons past.
Not denying his work ethic, but his decision making and discipline leave something to be desired. IMO

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."
“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
