Stortini is a much better technical skater, owing largely to the work he's done in the offseason.
Neither one belongs in the NHL for more than a cup of coffee. At least JFJ can get in on the forecheck and punish the odd guy.

Stortini accomplishes nothing, the NHL is not a charity league and the guy has made a good living doing nothing other than being a goof and hugging it out.
