Thornton is a middleweight that fights Heavies on a regular basis and holds his own, and Clowe is a decent fighter that fights when he needs to. Just a quick look at the numbers...Thornton has 30 fights in the last season and a half, while Clowe has 12...Apples and oranges.
I'm also wondering what Lucic is defined as? He's roughly the same size as Clowe and he's not a goon (ie, has skill), and he's a significantly better fighter than Clowe, albeit not as skilled.
I think Lucic and Clowe are in the same class, top 6 forwards who will drop the gloves and protect their teammates. Lucic is probably the better fighter but Clowe has the edge skillwise, Just my opinion.
