Depending upon who you ask, Saturday provided examples of the good and the bad regarding Shane Doan.

The good side: he scored the sort of goal that provides fodder for an obscure stat like this –

The bad: Well, just look at the video above. Doan collided with Winnipeg Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec, and considering his history of shaky-to-bad hits, some wonder if it wasn’t on Doan.

Whether that was accidental or … convenient, the bottom line is that Pavelec is hurt.

What do you think?

Update: The Jets got a measure of revenge with a 3-2 win, and there was some rough stuff between Doan and Dustin Byfuglien after the final whistle sounded.
