Sheesh.
I think that goes beyond any reasonable expectations, and basically asks for a lot more than Thornton would be worth at this stage in his career. It would be the equivalent of, say, Anaheim wanting a young 40 goal scorer for Teemu Selanne. Or, at least, a slightly younger than he is now Teemu. I don't care how important Teemu is to Anaheim, but wanting an equivalent player to him who is younger? Not going to happen.
