I don't get why everyone is trashing this signing.
Not me. I think he has potential. A heart and soul guy. Anybody who's played loves guys like this because they know there's someone who will always have their back. Whatever level you play at--unless it's a recreational (really) non checking league you need guys like this.

The other thing I don't think the Rangers sign this guy if he can't get up and down the ice. Konopka puts up 2 goals this regular season and posters here are targeting him as a possible 4th line center. There are different things that factor into why this guy or that.

It will be interesting to see what Torts gets out of him. I'm not making any predictions. At this point I see him kind of as a tweener. He could make the Rangers out of training camp. He might go to the AHL. I definitely see it as a worthwhile experiment. We're not going to be out a lot of $ if it fails.
