Even if he becomes just an AHL guy, good for him. Having a strong farm team is a good thing.
Think seeing the NCAA pipeline to Boston had anything to do with his decision? Krug, Miller, Acciari, Schaller, Vatrano, Czarnik all undrafted college kids who've seen significant time/roles in Boston just this year.

Captain, NCAA Tournament MVP, 166 consecutive games played, plays the power play and penalty kill, and according to prohockeyrumors, "has a ridiculous work ethic and determined defensive effort". What's not to like as a free agent? Sounds like an 'little urban achiever' to me. You had me at 'patterns his game after Marchand'.
