He will. He shouldn't though unless it's Lucic. Worth it to take him off the ice for 5. Probably will go with Thornton, but he won't win. I think he's more there to deal with the Campbells, Boychuks and Mcquaids.
They should call up Alex Henry for the Bruins game.
Alex Henry can take care of Thornton. That would be a helluva game if he came up.
Henry vs Thornton
Schultz vs Lucic
Bourque vs Campbell
White vs McQuaid
Subban vs Marchand
Price vs Timmay
Gomez vs Bergeron
Schultz has a shot against thornton. White can take care of Boychuk or Campbell. Mcquaid might have too much of a reach advantage.
Unless Thornton is molesting PK, leave him be. He brings nothing else to the table. Just like Lucic wouldn't fight BGL, no one should honour Thornton unless he earns it. Best hope for Schultz is a wrestling match, but it will send a statement that our skill guys are off limits.
Solid call ups after the Mike Brown fiasco from last night. This is why Cunneyworth "Gets it," and should stay on as a coach. White and Schultz may not be Probert and Kocur, but they bring an important physical element to the game that is needed - especially since the Bruins have manhandled the Habs for awhile physically. Great move! Hopefully Moen is in the lineup against the Bruins as well...
He was injured yesterday and the habs still iced a full a lineup. Unless Palushaj is getting sent down it doesn't make much sense to call up both guys to replace 1 injured player.
Not very complicated if you ask me... Both White and Schultz played 3 games in 3 days so they are out of the question for tommorrow (who cares it's Carolina). The next day Palushaj gets sebt down and the fire starts baby!!
