I'd hate to lose him, even if it saves the team a little bit of money.
He seems like a great team guy , but he is a guy you are looking to replace if he is a top 12 forward imo. Not saying Peluso is the guy to replace him , but Thorburn doesn't do any one or two things well enough to be a plus player again imo.
