It is too bad the appeal process does not allow the commish to give him a season suspension. Torres does not belong in the NHL. There are good solid hits and there are intent to injure or permanently remove a quality player from the game which is what that snake did. He would not stand a chance if his oponent was aware that he was coming from behind like the coward he is. I would not miss him or his kind from the game. Don't get me wrong, solid, CLEAN hits are part of the game. His cowardly action does not belong on the ice.

I agree 100% He has no respect for another players career There are hits that happen on the I'll get you back that are bad and should not happen But he just not care who he hits and does not care if he seriously hurts them to the point their career mabey over I do believe he should be band for life before someone gets hurt to the point he is unable to play the sport he makes his career from or even possibley kill someone He is not good for the NHL and if he is let back in to play Then the NHL should be Ashamed of their decision to let him return
