Stortini doesnt agitate anyone, other teams players punch him in the face, laugh and skate away without taking a penalty, or else they fight, beat up Stortini, then mock him on the way to the penalty box.

Guys like MPS, Reddox, and Jones draw way more penalties by using their speed and determination.

Fraser is a stop gap who can at least skate and play the PK. That said he isnt a long term solution and should be gone soon.

JFJ can skate circles around Strotini and hits a lot harder and more often. He may not fight as often, but he doesnt look as bad when he does. That and he pots the odd goal as well.

Glad Stortini is gone and never questioned his heart but the guy never had NHL talent.
