The most important reason is that Worrell can skate better, thus check better. I've never seen him play, but that seems to be the concensus.
Even though we all want the big 6 to have their ice time, if the Avs are blowing out a team or at worst have a 2 goal lead, then they would like to be able to roll out all 4 lines.
The purpose of that is keep everyone fresh and less likely to be injured. I think in that context, it may be a good thing.
When Parker was around, that just didn't happen. You just have to look at it this way, you can have someone whose really good at 1 thing (parker for fighting), or someone whose pretty good at 2 things (worrell for fighting and checking). Apparently, the Avs prefer the latter. Which makes sense somewhat.
