Anyone that feels compelled to make "hispanic" or "Mexican" jokes can also expect an infraction. We do not permit any type racial, ethnic or stereotype content.

This deal is hilarious, as Wilson has publicly derided Torres for years for that Michalek hit.

I hate him too, but if he can get the headshots out of his game then....I guess I'm for it. You gotta think he doesn't want to miss another 20+ games.

He brings that grit element that Burish was supposed to bring. Instead, Burish has been completely useless.

On the other hand, if Torres can get Burish fired up.....a 4th line with Torres and Burish could be hell for the opposition.

At least Torres is speedy, gritty and proves toughness. Not a bad replacement for Clowe, but he'll always be a POS.

I thought Doug Wilson was done trading for rentals though....

After he sucker punched milan in the back of the head, who at the time was my favorite player, I wrote him off. anti-character guy who would be a horrible influence on our developing players.

How is this anything like Ben Eager? I don't like Torres, but he is much, much better than Eager.

There's no doubt anymore, SJ is my least favourite team now. Torres is a punk.

like these moves a lot, dw brought in hannan to replace murrat for cheap, essentially a wash, except we now have probably 2 seconds. they bring in torres to probably play with pavs to replace clowe. torres has better numbers then clowe this year. and with gaborik going to cbj its looking like there signing clowe.

murray and a 7th= 2 seconds and hannan
clowe= 2 seconds and torres as they traded third for him.

torres only has 16 pims this year which is less then marleau, when you consider torres is having a stronger year then clowe and we dont down grade much from murray to hannan. and we get 4 second rounders whats not to like

Some of you sharks fans need to relax, geesh. You swear we signed the devil. So he's a dirty player, so what? We need someone who's going to make teams think twice about hitting guys like Couture. Torres adds that. Hate him all you want, but he's a shark now. If he helps us get that cup then you'll be happy he's in teal. Gotta keep your enemies closer, right?

Well didn't you just pick the best place to share that?! Yeah you can see how everyone here is reacting to the trade. Torres coming to San Jose is a joke situation I've played out in my head for years. "HA, what if Wilson traded for Torres...? ......pffffhahahaha RIGHT!"

:/

I hated Nichol a lot and he won me over as a Shark veeeery quickly. I'm really praying for that to happen here.

Can someone explain how Torres is better than Eager? They're almost the same thing. Apparently Raffinhas cleaned up his act?

What Jody Shelly did to Brad Stuart was far worse than the Michalek hit and Bryan Marchment threw dirtier hits, but Sharks fans never held that against them.
For me it isn't the Michalek hit. It's the Michalek hit, and the Hossa hit, and the Seabrook hit, and the Hejda hit, and...his entire history of disregard for the safety of his fellow players. He and Cooke are two people I just can't root for. Sure, it's an emotional response to the trade. But the entire fan attraction to pro sports is an emotional one.

Torres is better offensively and defensively. Much better offensively.

Both are solid forecheckers, hitters, and fighters. In terms of hockey, Torres is better.

But everyone is saying there is no chance for us to win the cup this year.

I ... I ... have no words.

A 3rd? For this dirtbag?

Well, at least our PK is good enough this year to handle it. But to go from Clowe to this ....

For the SJ fans complaining...you'll like Torres in the playoffs. And for some to say he's Eager 2.0, that's a ridiculous comparison.

Eager was one of the reasons you lost in the WCF
Torres was one of the reasons we won in the WCF
