Who's taking the penalties?

Now that Alexandre Giroux has scored #50 for the Bears, I thought I might look at why he has not done as well with the big club, or least why he's not here.  I was thinking about his performance and remembering that the first time he was called up he took some bad penalties, and was sent back to the chocolates.  He came up again this month, 3/12, and in one game he took two dumb penalties.

This lead me to the question...who takes the most penalties per minute played for the Caps.  The answer is quite obvious, it's the Donald.  After the guy paid to take penalties, though, the answers shocked me. 

.

 

So based on people's comments here I've made a few changes, looking only at minor penalties, and put it below...
