I guarantee you if Torres were traded here, he'd just float like everyone else.

Don't forget it was only a few years ago that he was dealt to Buffalo and did absolutely nothing for that team.
He was huge for Columbus, played well for Nucks, played well in Phoenix, playing great for SJ, and played about 15 games in Buffalo. Yet I hear this Buffalo thing a lot.

I don't know that any other player thats been here gets more irrational hate than Torres. Not sure what it is. Useful player here and has been much of his career. Consistently better than ANYBODY we've had in our bottomsix. Whats the last player we've had in bottom six rotation better than Torres is now?

Glencross? Brodz? Neither of who this org respected either.
