He got an NHL gig solely because of his heart. IIRC, he was merely a fill-in player in the AHL. He was undrafted, and was only put on Worcester because they needed another body. His heart made him succeed in Worcester, and his grit allowed him to crack the NHL roster.

As for the Kurz debate, it's hard not to root for Kurz here. To me, the FTF guys are sounding like immature keyboard warriors.
