Help - I have Funky Nuts!

In my pursuit to improve my understanding and abilities of gear placement and aid climbing, I spent all day yesterday aiding some single pitch routes at a local crag in my area. When it came time to clean my gear, I had to seriously wrestle with a few small pieces and ended up funking a few of them out. One of my #1 Black Diamond Stoppers got pretty mangled. So herein lays my question: Should stoppers/nuts not be extracted by way of a funkness device (not a typical cable and hammer, but a Trad draw attached to the nut-end of the cable)? Is there a good way to straighten this nut out for easier future use? Any advice would be great.
