Replacing Thornton isn`t just about replacing the scraps, to find another guy in the system or otherwise who can play a 4th line role as effectively, be a regular contributor, have a purpose other than just scrappin, isn`t as easy as it sounds IMO.

If the B`s or Julien is insistent on using a 4th line consistently, then those playing on that 4th line in the future will have to be players that can actually play the game
