Thorburn

hey guys,

a few questions:

1. What kind of player is Thorburn, is he a heavyweight in terms of fighting?

2. Is he expected to return?

He has returned.

He's a heavy weight in being one of the heavier players in the league, but doesn't exactly win fits (not that there has been any correlation to winning fights and any on ice result like momentum in shots or goals but meh )

I dont think anyone here expects him in the NHL past this year. Even a desparate team looking for size would pass.

Very game....rarely wins but also doesn't get blown out very often. popular teammate that steps up when challenged and does his job.

Borderline 4th liner on a sub 500 team. Will fight, but loses more often then not. Popular in the dressing room as he is a bit of a joker. Can't see him on any type of contender.

I think he will be in the NHL next year.
Unfortunately borderline grinders seem to get NHL contracts while borderline skilled players end up in Europe.

Ben Eager played 60 games and 18 in the playoffs for the 09-10 Blackhawks.

Except maybe this team. Which would be laughable.

4th liner that will step up to any heavyweight in the league. Not a dime a dozen type player but not really in demand either. May find a role on a re-building team in the future.
