He said himself, he wants to work on that and not be and enforcer. I rate other players before an enforcer. But if McKee shows he can improve in other areas of his game, then I'll be the first to vote for him ahead of the other guys on this list.
See I disagree. Nestrasil was a similar late round pick that was supposed to be a scorer. He has basically proven that his skill has stagnated and it will not develop to a point to contribute in the NHL at all and he has proven that with his lack of development.

Mckee already has the toughness to fill the role he was supposed to in the NHL. He doesnt need to become a scorer or anything and hasnt proven that he is going nowhere. There is still hope for him. Guys like Nestrasil and Raedeke have proven theyw ont be NHLers anytime soon
