He seems like one of two types of guys McPhee has a real hard on for: guys with potential that end up being career minor leaugers. (the other being big guys who wont use their size.)
"The season before that, I had a really good camp, had some goals, and still got sent down to the minors. I needed to figure out a way to make the opening night roster. And talking to a good friend of mine, he said 'You've got to fight.' He said, 'If you don't do it, someone else will,' and I kind of stick by that motto now."
