Not sure if I agree with suspending Thornton, but it's at least good to see that the league is willing to suspend guy like him still (meaning, stars with no reputation).

After the Hawks Cup win last year, Toews seemingly became the single most over-rated player in the league to me. He doesn't even with the Conn Smythe if his team wins (Briere and Pronger both arguably deserved it as much or more then him).

He's a great player, but there were polls and discussions on here and on the internet that pegged him as a top five forward in the league. It was ridiculous. The guy has never scratched 70 points and people were considering him an elite forward because of all the hype off of the Cup win (a team accomplishment) and the Conn Smythe win (personally, I don't put much stake into NHL awards, aside from the Cup).
