Dustin Byfuglien --like many of the Winnipeg Jets' best players-- is a pretty controversial player. You either love him and think he's the best, or you just out right hate him.

Regardless of which category one falls in line with, almost all agree that the Big Buff has a tonne of talent in many areas but struggles in others. Very few will deny his offensive prowess, and almost everyone can remember at least one moment where a dangerous play evolves from a defensive miscue.

Which camp you lie in depends on your opinion of whether or not his strengths overcome his weaknesses.
