By that definition, the actual number of penalty minutes still applies. My point was, there are quite a few guys in the penalty box more than Arty was.

So penalty magnet applies, but I wouldn't use it in a manner critical of him. Just unfortunate.
I can understand your point, but IMO, that's not a worthy reason to trade him. There were plenty of times where he was actually allowed to play his game and he was quite effective(unlike some, I believe it was more than 10 games). Of course, there were many times he had bogus calls made against him, but as pointed out, it wasn't necessarily his fault so I choose not to hold that against him.

I find it funny that some are in such a hurry to be happy little slaves.
