Marleau-Couture-Wingels was absolutely terrible tonight, easily the worst of the Sharks' four forward lines. I think the scoring chance sheet will verify that when it comes out sometime tommorow. That said, there's no question that the Marleau-Couture-Wingels line has line has been our best in recent weeks, and I doubt Wingels is in any danger of being the odd man out once Torres arrives. Burish really has improved a lot in the last few games, but he is still effectively a worse version of Torres. Needless to say, Torres is not exactly revered around these parts. But he has proven himself to be a very valuable depth forward on a good team and as very capable of making an impact in the playoffs. Burish is best known for insulting Chris Pronger when being interviewed on the ice after the Hawks had just won the Cup. It's a little silly when a dude who played 5 mins/game in the playoffs is so opinionated about the surefire Conn Smythe winner had Philadelphia won. He must have been the Blackhawks' comedian, because he certainly didn't have an impact on the ice. Torres was a key part of two teams that lost in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. It's safe to say he has value in this type of situation.
