Why he might be annoying:

    He began his organized sports career by playing baseball, but gave it up for hockey.
    He was traded to the Calgary Flames from the Dallas Stars just months after being drafted.
    It took him eight years to help lead the Flames back to the playoffs.
    Part of his appeal is that he's one of the few black players in the NHL.
    He charges the net very intensely, sometimes causing himself to ram into the goalie hard.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He scored a goal in his first NHL game.
    The Dallas Stars made a huge mistake by trading him.
    He is flexible, having played Left Wing when asked to accommodate for team mates.
    He was named as the Calgary Flames' team Captain (October 2003).
    He is the first black hockey player to ever be named team Captain for an NHL team.
