Its like when the Leafs defend the Kubina trade by saying it was to clear cap room for their signings. Same rule applied for Boston in the end.
The only way that the Thornton trade could be viewed as a success is that it got O`Connel fired. In every other way it was an epic fail.

There is no way Chiarelli trades Thornton for those three scrubs.
