I can see why it's easy to be a Fotiu fan, he's a very likeable guy, a native New Yorker, and played for the Rangers who have a lot of fans.
I don't think it changes anything about his low fight total and his odd way of squaring off for what seems like minutes at a time, a good fighter with toughness will engage even if it means taking a shot or 2. Not saying he wasn't tough but it's not boxing and he played in the era of Kevin Collins who broke up more fights than all other linesman combined so squaring off for 30-40 seconds and having a non-fight as a result simply hurts Nick's legacy.
His post Ranger career was a sad joke too, he just did nothing with the other teams he played for but he was probably crushed by getting traded away from his beloved Rangers, he just didn't seem motivated at all in Calgary and why he even signed with Philly, I'll never know.
