Why he might be annoying
In the 2001-2002 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Tucker took out New York Islanders' captain Michael Peca with a low hit that knocked him out for the duration of the playoffs. Peca had to have reconstructive knee surgery and wound up missing half of the next season.
He is a notorious 'yapper' on the ice, but rarely ever fights.
He often dives to accentuate penalty calls, and then whines if the referee doesn't call a penalty on the opposing player.
In early 2002, he was suspended for two games after charging Washington Capitals' defense man Sergei Gonchar.
His teams have not made it past the Eastern Conference Finals.
