With more viable goalscorers then we have more options that could get a shot to the net instead of bottlenecking our options around a few goalscorers
I don't think the shots themselves will be an issue. The issue is the competition he will face on a consistent basis if he's lined up with Thornton. He will have the puck less, he will be defended more, and he will play against the best every night whereas there are coaches that will shelter their offensive players to a higher degree than McLellan will.
