If you check out his twitter page, he couldn't be more excited to help out the team. I think him not qualifying will turn out to be - not a good thing - but maybe a driving force to make him work even harder. I say this also because I don't think he would have gotten much PT this year. He probably would have been 4th on the depth chart at best. Now, he will be able to bust his arse in the spring when he joins the team with Rettig and Jennings and work his arse off and give us great depth.
