Softest team in the league, gets softer. Good for teams like Calgary, Vancouver and Minny who love to abuse our players.
I just don't understand your point, when was the last time Stortini made anyone pay for hitting our young kids. Sure the guy gives it his all, but that doesn't change the fact that when he's trying to be physical, he's NOT creating energy on the bench and he's not changing the momentum. By the way, the last time any of our kids got hit by a hard, albeit clean hit, Penner was the one who stepped up. Last time I remember Stortini not being embarrassed in a fight was during the NY Rangers game after the whole Avery-Smid debacle. He may get under a teams skin somewhat, but I honestly think he's drawing more laughter from other teams players than anything. The point is, is we have guys who will step up if they have to, other teams may not be fearful of these guys, but they certainly weren't fearful of Stortini, and most of these guys can actually play hockey (Penner, Peckham, Vandermeer). Hell, even Gagner will step up and fight to prove a point.
