Agree 100% w THornton's on ice value as well. He brings alot. He needs some help. Would be nice if he could share the role in games like this.
I don't think so; I'm not happy with the result last night either, but it would be 100X worse if that was Chara that got caught. I think the other post hit the nail on the head, just don't mess with the guy. He's out there for 5-6 minutes a night. Play your game, if he instigates or runs someone, then you might have to take your chances; otherwise he looks as useless as the time Laraque was skating the first line in Montreal.
Hope Thornton gets healthy and is back soon!!
