Mortson was a pretty good offensive defenseman, as well, who was known for his big shot. Actually, I think Thomson - Mortson on second units straight across is one of the real strengths of this team.
Maybe I was underrating them offensively - I guess they're pretty good on a second PP. I still don't really buy Thomson as a low-end #2 though - that would put him on par with Harry Howell, Bill White, and Fern Flaman; is he really on their level?
