Most of the responses on the last 2 pages are pretty good.
Chara was off that night. I think he would have liked to have stuck up for his teammate. but we can't make the trade of Chara for Scott. If we do and that is a storyline whenever we play Buffalo they've already won and are in our heads just because they signed a scrub who can't play.
Thornton lost. And lost bad. And it sucks b/c he was trending upwards and I would say after beating Rupp was considered a top 5 fighter.
Now...his career and roster spot are both in question. (He'll probably be fine but his play is slipping b/c of age and we do not need to engage in staged fights, if we get into emotional bouts that is one thing but we need to avoid staged goon fights Lucic and Chara are too valuable and both are our best fighters.)
