This.

He has to remember what kind of player he is and what keeps him on the roster.

He must play in straight lines. Dump puck, get puck and/or hit a guy. Stand up for his team mates. Any points he gets are strictly bonus points.

The whole fourth line needs to be reminded of this from time to time but I think Thornton gets into the "I'm skilled" frame of mind more often than the other two.
