Either he plays with Thornton or he doesn't. You can't have it both ways. If he plays with JT he does so on the 1st line, if he doesn't then he's not benefiting from JT's playmaking. It' can't be both.

Sorry to jump in here but I liked how you twisted the post you quoted.... He/She did not say Pavelski "Plays with" Thornton. He said Thornton played against top pairing d-men therefore minimizing the time Pavelski played against them (indicating separate lines but obviously playing on the same team - ie. plays with). You absolutely can have it both ways. It was never mentioned that Pavs was the benficiary (at least in the post you quoted) of Thornton's playmaking.

Just wanted that to be clear. Maybe I missed something along the way for which I apologize but this was clearly a twisted post.
