Whatever. I didn't say that Thornton has never lost his temper and taken stupid penalties.

What I *DID* say, however, is that nearly ALL Habs fans I've ever seen post on these boards think that Thornton is the cheapest/dirtiest player in the known universe (and likely the unknown universe as well!), while turning a COMPLETELY blind eye to their own players' equally CHEAP AND DIRTY PLAY.

As someone else said earlier on in this thread... Joe Thornton smashed his face into Yannic Perrault's stick, right? But Perrault is an angel, right? Maybe in an alternate universe, but not in this one.

Yep, Thornton tried to rip Koivu's head off... AFTER Koivu had given a nasty two-handed chop across Thornton's forearms. Stupid retaliatory penalty, you betcha. But your beloved "can do no wrong" captain is FAR from an angel. Frankly, all the diving, acting, and other such shenanigans that the Habs players partake in is EQUALLY as cheap as anything Joe Thornton has ever dished out to any Habs player, IMO.
