I think it's because he's always been a AAAA guy. He can fill in almost anywhere in a pinch, but can't really sustain it long-term. Too good for the AHL, but doesn't really have a specialized skill set to bring to an NHL roster. He's "good" at a lot of things, but not great at any of them.
Doesn't really have the skill set of a top 6 guy (but can fill in due to injury), and doesn't exactly play a grinding bottom 6 role (but can fill in if needed).
Not sure if that makes any sense, but that's how I perceive Jeffrey and his play

Skill-wise, I'd say he's right on par with Sutter. But he just never developed the confidence from having a specific role on the team. He probably will go the route of Christensen.
