I admire those highlight clips as much as the next guy, but those are 3 shifts out of a nearly invisible career.
He was a great 4th liner the whole year in Toronto (sometimes 3rd), too bad he had a down time in Carolina because if he still played like he did when he was with the Leafs he would have easily got a 700k 1 way.
