It could just be a bad fit despite good intentions. He wouldn't be the first player that Tortorella just didn't care to use. And with that said, all the other guys that USED to be in his dog house, like Avery, Lisin, Voros, are suddenly reborn, so it's not as if the book is closed on Ales for eternity.

I'm not following the Seidenberg example. Kotalik has more points on the PP over the past 2 seasons than Seidenberg has in his career and clearly isn't the type of player the organization targeted in the offseason. You could have brought Mara back at half the price if you wanted a Seidenberg type guy, but you've still got a hole on the wing.
