Dan Carcillo has yet to play for the Chicago Blackhawks, but he may already be in need of a new home.
Carcillo's entrance into the NHL consisted of an 18-game stint with the Phoenix Coyotes in 2007. Carcillo totaled 74 penalty minutes and fought four times. The next season, Carcillo lead the NHL in penalty minutes with 324.
Upon his trade to Philadelphia in 2009, Carcillo continued his rampage on the ice with events such as a beating of Marian Gaborik and dropping Matt Bradley.
When Peter Laviolette took over as coach of the Flyers, Carcillo began to calm down. Over the past two seasons, he became a dull and boring player. He rarely showed the fire he did when the Flyers first acquired him.
With the Chicago Blackhawks, Carcillo will be forced to play a restrained style again. He is not as effective of a player when he needs to be constrained.
If Carcillo were with a franchise that allowed him to be the wild man he was in Phoenix, his aggressive style of play would be far more effective.
