Was he going to then go with Orr or Mclaren? Doubtful. Was Mcquaid going to step up and fight the first heavy of his career? Also doubtful. Did we want Chara or Looch going with those two? I didn't.

I personally don't want to waste a roster spot on a guy like that. I would certainly be seriously in the market for a guy that plays a few quality shifts without hurting the team that can hang with those guys. Thornton was that guy, but I'm not sure how willing of a combatant he will be post-concussion. I'm also not sure I want him to. The guy does have a life to live when his career is over.
I like Lane. He was very smart to go after the Leaf's 3rd best fighter and leave the legit guys alone.
