I was surprised to see Thornton behind Lindsay. If you look at their rankings in assists, Thornton is ahead (more times leading the league, and more years in the top ten).

Thornton: 1,1,1,2,2,3,7,8,10
Lindsay: 1,1,3,3,3,4,7,9

I know there's more too it than that, but that high-level review suggests that Thornton should be ahead.
