Why are we talking about dumping him off a total unknown again?
I'd rather dump Asham. Not that I don't like him, but Asham is just a slightly different version of Lappy and Carcillo. Not quite the agitator as Carcillo but a better fighter. Not quite the defender as Lappy but better offensively. Thoresen is a different type of player as Carcillo/Lappy/Asham. He is a gritty heart "give it all you got 100% of the time" type player with a potential for some offensive upside. I'm not saying he'll come in and be an all-star, but he brings something different to the table that Asham doesn't.
