I would actually love to have him as our 6th defenseman if he was paid according to his current skill level. And by all accounts, he was a decent guy, so I cant really classify losing him as a turnaround when the defense has proven to be so young and inconsistent in the early going.

But I will eat some crow about Torts. I think hes done a complete 180 with his image - no longer comes off as angry at the world and I think its really helping this team. Maybe his hip replacement has brought forth and older, kindler, and gentler Torts - but his message seems much clearer this season (no longer blaming losses on limosines, etc).
