Don't think it's fair to have a 36 yo #22 go night in and night out...especially now you play the west , you will see more fights IMO with these guys trying to out do each other...

Again, as nothing to do with the team being successful, but figure a 14th guy who can throw and hit 15 -20 games a year while giving #22 a breather would be beneficial to everyone, including our two big stars so they wouldn't feel like they needed to step up.
Night in and night out?

I don't think Thornton's fighting THAT much.

IMHO this is a problem that doesn't exist. I'd like every good young player on the Bruins to step up if need be. I don't see the point of signing a knuckle-dragger who can barely play. If teams like Montreal or Buffalo want to do so, fine. Boston doesn't have to.
