It does seem like the Canucks miss Torres...they really aren't tough anymore. Before the Canucks might've done something for Keith elbowing Sedin in the face but really nothing happened and I think Torres is something the Canucks are lacking. I don't want to say the Canucks are "soft" but they sure aren't scaring anyone. I can see why so many Canucks fans flocked to this thread to show their support for Torres.
As for the fight, looks like a draw to me. Not sure why Mayers would get an instigator like someone suggested considering Torres had his gloves off instantly and before Mayers did. The Hawks team really felt energized and played like a great team after the fight and really that should be all that matters. Fights are supposed to create energy and team camaraderie and it looked to me like the Hawks scored 6 goals. It isn't always about who can beat up the other guy the most.
I have heard one of the reason Torres was't resigned was he was a bit of a Cancer to the team... I take that with a grain of salt. But who knows could be true?
I think Torres is a cheap hockey player who tries to hit guys extra hard when they are vulnerable and unsuspecting. Not unlike Matt Cooke.. Hes more respectable in the sense that at least he will throw down and face the music.
