Unlike most goons, Stortini actually can play hockey, so he's not actively hurting his team by being on the roster. Strictly fourth-line stuff, mind, and he might very well clear waivers because he is purely a fourth-liner and most teams have better players.
But the Oilers are not most teams. Why waive Stortini when you have McIntyre and especially, JF Jacques on the roster? Jacques may hit people, but he's a serious candidate for worst overall hockey player in the NHL, especially if you disqualify pure goons. Stortini is no great shakes, but he is flat out a better player than Jacques, nevermind the extracurricular fisticuffs.
smac can fight thats why hes here, JFJ is useless agreed but he seems to be the managements latest love intrest...also stortini's embarassing fighting skills do more damage then good so i can see why he was let go
