More important, in the face of a clear need for more mobile defensemen, McPhee signed a player who should be the #6-7 to a contract that suggests he should at least be an everyday player. It makes no sense.
Wrong. If he hit the UFA market there would be several teams in line for his services and he would have made north of $2 mil per for at least 1 more year.

Many seem to certainly underestimate him here. The guy is absolutely a legit heavy weight who can PLAY in this new NHL. Thats a pretty rare combo. He hits, fights, gives 100% and clears the crease.

Reminds me of 2 of my personal favorite Caps in Bob Rouse and Mark Tinordi. Limited skaters who gave 100%, hit everything in sight, had no hesitation to drop the gloves and competed with intensity.
