Good job not knowing what your talking about. If it weren't for the risk of getting screwed by him being suspended, Torres would have been able to make a lot more on the open market. Probably could have anyways. When he's not doing stupid ****, he's actually a valuable offensive player.

"This season, Torres scored north of two points per 60 even-strength minutes, good for 65th among forwards (Click for Stats) and ahead of players like Anze Kopitar, Claude Giroux and Pavel Datsyuk (also more than every Shark save Brent Burns and Logan Couture). What's particularly impressive is that this was far from a one-year outlier courtesy the vagaries of a shortened season. Especially on the goal-scoring front, Torres has always been a very productive player at evens and ranks 58th in goals per 60 since 2008 (Click for Stats) despite having played for five different teams over that span; this isn't a case of a player consistently leeching off superior linemates."
