It wasn't that Torts didn't like MZA, he just wasn't good enough. You could see him get pushed down with ease by the opposing players. He simply isn't strong enough for the NHL.

Notice that he didn't exactly set the KHL on fire either so far. If MZA had been a few inches taller, was a bit stronger and scored a little more, he'd have been on our second line.

I don't understand why so many people here hate St. Croix. The people who are Oil fans and watch him regularly like him. He's much taller than MZA and he's stronger, so if he manages to score 40+ points, Torts will like him just fine.
