Torres is approximate a 20G 20A - 40pt player which is Umberger's typical rate except this year. I don't see his upside. The other difference is that Torres scores 99% of his points at ES because he doesn't play on the PP whereas Umberger scores maybe 70% at ES. I've always said Torres is a lesser Hartnell.
Is he worth a top-4 D-men? Maybe a defensive D-men, but not an two-way top-4 D-man.
how many years as torres been in the league compared to umbergers 3? it is unrealistic to think rj can possibly improve.
