No way, Ott has more heart than just about anyone on the team, every night he goes out and puts 110% into the game. He gives his line and team energy every time he steps on the ice. He is an instigator I will give you that, but that's not all he is, he can produce as well he has 10 goals, and 11 assists this season. Last year he finished with 22 goals and the season before that with 19. Thats why Dallas signed him to a contract extension in the offseason, he is one of the few that actually deserved one. If anyone needs let go is Barch, he is the complete example of a goon.
thats the point
Ott could be so much more, yet he seems fine to be in the instigator role.
Yea possibly, but thats just his style. And over the last few seasons when he realized he could contribute in other ways, he has been a lot smarter in the fact that he rarely takes stupid calls that puts the other team on the power play. He does a good job of walking that fine line of pissing the other team off, but not hurting his team in the process.
He's just one of those players that you HATE when he is not on your team, but he is an automatic fan favorite for the team he does play for.
