Agreed. Thornton is 30. His best offensive days are behind him. I think it is fair to say that Myers is one of the top 5 prospects in all of hockey at this point. He is looking more and more like Chara or Pronger and less and less like Mike Wilson.

I think the only way Thornton comes is if Vanek goes. Buffalo cannot afford 2 7+ million forwards. No way. I'd propose a Vanek for Thornton deal, straight up. Both teams would be gambling, but it would be a major identity change for both, something that could turn out great or turn out terrible.
