Friday's Dump & Chase: Can You Root For "Bad" Guys?

New, comments

Justin Bourne had a great piece yesterday trying to evaluate the the role of "character" on a hockey team, and as a fan of a team that seems to place a high value on this particular trait, does it matter to you? Is character overvalued here? Would you rather the team pass on a guy who's clearly a skilled player because he might be viewed as a head case?
