I don't for a second believe the Bruins collapsed because Thornton lost a fight early in the first. Correlation does not imply causation. They had an off night, a really off night from Chara especially. It happens! Now Thornton is a loss but I'd rather replace him in the short term than any other regular except for Bourque.
So they haven't lost anything by replacing Thornton with MacDermid ? They are still just as tough?
