I don't really know if he belongs here but since this is the undrafted thread I guess it can't hurt to give some props to the players I had respect for.

Scott Thornton LW 6-3 220 lbs

942 games 144 goals 141 assists 285 pts
1459 PIM 79 playoff games
Had some good seasons in San Jose even though we all know why.42 pts and 26 goals , 36 pts and 19 goals during the dead puck era all the while getting 100 PIMs like he almost always did.

Though he had decent skating ability - strong and balanced - he was not fast. He was smart positionally on the defensive side.
