I`ll get nailed for this but I`ll say it, this had everything to do with ego/pride for Thornton and nobody here, nor his teammates I suspect, would have any issues had he let Scott just be Scott and skate around for 4 minutes nightly and look like a toolbox

While Chara is/would be the only acceptable dance partner, I think Chara or Julien should have stepped up and yes......pulled the Lewis and said, "just leave Scott alone" , not worth it
That's not the Bruins way however... I always hear how other teams "are afraid" of the Bruins because they won't engage them... So now, if the Bruins do that it's OK? Not to me it isn't. That's not this team's identity...
