Hockey scum.
Well be horrified. The dude is a good player and I think most can't see past his physical play to see that.

Yup. I just didn't like the price we paid for him, but I'll get over it if he keeps playing like he did today.

Im a canuck fan and you guys will love Torres when the playoffs start. He will destroy everyone and players won't want to handle the puck for long. Our GM is an idiot for not bringing him back.

I don't mind the 3rd for him. He fills a big hole on the third line and this team can't get free agents.

I'm not a fan of DW getting into a bidding war if the rumors are accurate that we only got him because Montreal wasn't willing to give up a 2nd for Torres.

Vancouver was in the mix too.

if we look at it was a 3rd for a 31 year old third liner. not the greatest trade ever, but the guy hasnt really slowed down and he has a lot left to give...and a third round pick..even FLs is meh to me. id have been worried if it was a second.

Why is that a bad thing? Doesn't that show that DW wanted him, but he didn't want him if the price wasn't right?

Well, other teams didn't think he was worth it or else they would have topped this offer.

I didn't think it was worth overpaying for a guy who isn't all that necessary.

A 3rd is an overpayment for a guy whose skillset was a dire need? He was the only fast, physical shoot first winger that was available..I'm glad DW got him opposed to Vancouver.

Man 2 points in his first game and you are still not happy?

Also, DW gave up the 3rd .. admittedly its Florida's but still. I think having Torres gives us a lot more options for the bottom-6 and can also act as a tweener if need be. I think its worth it.

I'll be happy if we sit Burish, which this move amazingly still didn't get done.

Worth is a relative term.

Any one who watched the game today could see this was a good trade. Dislike him all you want but you can't argue he's an effective player and will help this team.

Other teams didn't think he was worth paying more than what the Sharks offered. That doesn't mean he isn't worth what the Sharks offered. One's worth also depends on the team he is going to.

We'll agree to disagree there. I don't think the Sharks overpaid, and Torres provides a very useful skill-set and he helps the Sharks' forward depth.

I liked what I saw from Torres today. He got the booooo he deserved after introductions, but hopefully that is the end of it because we need this guy. He is flat out menacing.

If the Sharks won, he would have been announced as one of the 3 stars. That would have been interesting.

He was good, but I wouldn't really expect anything else from a guy on his first game with a new team. Never had a problem with him as a player, just don't want to see any of the headhunting. So far so good, but it's been one game. Everyone is good in their first game after being traded, we won't really know what we have for a few weeks at least.
