Not a good example.
Without his depression issues and that ludicrous contract given to him after his 'career year', he brought exactly what Torres brought in spades minus the off-ice issues.
To be completely honest, I'm disappointed that we didn't invite him to camp with RNH potentially missing the beginning of the season. He's surely better than Andrew Miller and he can still bring a physical brand of hockey. Something this roster is still seriously lacking.
