Look this is simple. Scott is on the roster for one thing - to fight and intimidate. Thus far he has filled his role well. Thornton is our pugilist and can represent himself well with 90% of the other tough guys but he can't be expected to square off with guys that have 7 inches on him and 70 pounds on him. Would the Sabres sit back an allow Gerbe to drop them with Lucic? I am aware of the importance of Chara, I am aware he is very valuable and not a fair tradeoff but there comes a time when sitting in the box for 5 minutes is worth it to set the tone for the team and maybe that time has come.
