A pure character..

We're convinced Zenon Konopka is a minor-league version of a non-fashionista Sean Avery..

Also, during a goalmouth scrum, Zenon Konopka took a drink out of Adam Berkhoel's water bottle. I don't think I've ever seen that before. What do you do if you're a Penguins defenseman in that situation? Do you take great offense? I mean, it's not, on its face, a terribly offensive act. The guy just took a drink of water. It's not like he put his lips on the bottle or spat it at someone. I think you just call him a name and move on to the faceoff. What would you do?

Zenon is definitely NOT anything like sean avery.

He took a drink of water, no big deal.

Konopka supposedly challenged an entire team to fight in the parking lot a season or two ago.

He may not be Avery-esque in terms of being a douchebag, but Konopka's has some antics and does things that 99.9% of professional players wouldn't...

..Like drink the other goalie's water.
