I didn't expect Thornton to be re-signed, 35 is rather old for an enforcer.
Thornton loves Boston and likely wants to retire here. I have the feeling any contract he is offered will be short term and will likely still involve a hometown discount. I figure he is going to go one year two at most. And for enforcer types he isn't a waste of space on his line-he can play decent hockey and had a career year last year and is doing pretty well this year.
I think Paille and Campbell may test waters elsewhere though. I am pretty sure Paille could get another team to pay him more than Boston is willing to pay. Campbell too maybe. I think for them it comes down to how much they want to stay in Boston. I am pretty sure the offers will be fair, but they might find more money somewhere else.
