In the last two seasons Thornton has 39 goals and 147 points.

Seriously one of the first things they teach you playing hockey is assists are just as good as goals. If he's not producing points, fine use that as an argument. Bashing a center for a lack of goal scoring is simply ignorance of they way hockey is played
The myth of centers not scoring continues, once again NHL's two top goal scorers last season were both centers. And of course you cherry pick your stats. by naming two low goal scoring centers in Sedin and Thornton. You fail to mention Spezza's 34 goals, Tavares' 31 goals, Seguin's 29 goals, Couture's 31 goals, Pavelski's 30 goals....

In fact the leading goal scorers and points leaders in the A this season are mostly centers aside from Eberle and Schultz.
