Is Thornton being misused?

I believe he's being utilized in a way that is most beneficial to the team.
That said, it would be very interesting to change up the lines and give Thornton softer matchups. Marleau-Pavelski-XXX, providing the missing player is at least average defensively, should be able to handle the toughs, and maybe give Thornton (and Couture on his wing, ideally) second-tier matchups and more offensive zone starts, and therefore more offense.
But I don't know nearly as much about hockey as the people who handle these decisions.
