from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,
Meet Raffi The Reformer. Or Raffi The Reformed. Take your pick.
When your reputation precedes you and results in six career supplemental disciplines, any pledge to reform receives a doubting roll of the eyes because talk it easy. Change is hard. For Raffi Torres to remain effective — without leaving his feet and targeting the head on those heavy and suspendable hits — the Phoenix Coyotes winger would have to wrap his head around where the league is going or it would leave the pending unrestricted free agent and others like him behind. Far behind.
“I’m at the right point now,” Torres said in advance of Thursday’s meeting with the Vancouver Canucks.
