A minute eater on defense that was acquired for nothing and brought along with patience. That's my kind of managing.

Is he hitting people through the boards? No. Is he making amazing offensive plays. Not quite. He's a guy that frustrates offensive players with sound defense, tough as nails resilience and confidence, which ultimately wins championships. Kevin Lowe says hi
