07:31 AM ET 09.24 | With Raffi Torres, it's not merely about the numbers. [When] looking for evidence of the Sharks' turnaround that started right before the deadline and continued through a heartbreaking second round playoff defeat to the Los Angeles Kings, Torres is, quite simply, Exhibit A. Just ask Joe Pavelski. "He helped create kind of a little bit of a different identity for us, brought a lot of speed and intensity, and everyone fed off it," said Pavelski on Monday, shortly after it was publically revealed that Torres will miss at least a month, and possibly much more, with a right ACL injury. Pavelski continued: "It creates a bit of a hole." ... [For] as much skill as its has down the middle with Joe Thornton, Logan Couture and Pavelski, those three can't do it all by themselves.

Actually - it means that nothing changes. Back to the ol' one-and-out for them.

Soon, my friend, soon. That brain dead moron Kassian got his yesterday. Gone for the rest of per-season plus the first 5 games of the regular season. It doesn't help Sam Gagner much but .... it makes me feel good.

Once in a while the Sheriff gets it right.

And somewhere Cody Hodgson is laughing his ass off while looking at his 6 year 25.5 million dollar contract.

Nice move Gillis.

Saw Sam's picture last night on Twitter...


That looked painful - more than Roenick's did after Hatch rearranged his jaw.

And at least Hatch was a real hockey player when compared to the likes of Kassian.
