I ask this because its quite clear that Torts like having a 3rd line checking unit that matches against the oppositions top lines. Im curious as to how Stepan and his "poor skating" would even remotely excel in that role.
Chances are by then that Torts won't be in the picture and also a good chance that neither will Stepan if we can develop some speedier middlemen along the way .
