Chiarelli and Neely are not brain-dead...they realize that Thornton will not play forever.

Worse case: Bruins wait too long (e.g., years) and get a Goon who can't contribute like Thornton did.

Best Case: Bruins find a true heavyweight who can actually contribute when not fighting and he comes in and spells Thornton as needed during the transition to Thornton's retirement, which hopefully is at least a year or two away. Besides being a pugilist, Thornton brings grit, determination, spirit and is a team-first player.
