Stortini is not that man.
And on the enforcer topic , someone said it best earlier in this thread.
It's a tool to have in your toolbox
. Doesn't matter if you don't use it often but at least if you have it at your disposition if you have to. I wouldn't care if he plays 10 games a year, 5mins a night and most of the year in the AHL or in the pressbox. It's still a weapon you have in your arsenal.
Except you have a limit of 23 tool limit in your toolbox so if you use up one on an enforcer then you have to get rid of another. For us that means Kaberle, Weber, or White. I think we already are at 24 if you include Nokelainen.
