This is totally dependent on the direction the team wants to go to. Trading Thornton would mean the team is in total rebuild mode. i.e no playoffs for 2-3 years (at least).

On the other hand, you can trade pieces like Pavs, Clowe, Murray to get us some decent picks/prospects. Also, getting a new coach is crucial for us right now.

Reason I am not in favor of trading Thornton is because I feel that he can carry youngsters better than Marleau, Pavs, etc. Will keep us pretty competitive.

What?! Look, he thinks he's people!
