He was a part-time fourth-line forward and the team has yet to play a game without him being an option. He had his fans, filled his role and brought it every game, but by no means was he an irreplaceable cog.

I liked him better than May, he's younger and stronger.

Highly repleceable but I liked him, he knew his role and did it pretty well. I'm gonna miss him.

Is he comparable to Chris Neil?

No. Neil can score and agitates more. Thornton just finishes his checks and occasionally gets into a fight. He's not a bad guy to have on your team, but he's by no means a difference maker.

No I wouldn't go that far. He isn't going to put the puck in the net the way Neil can.

Thornton is a good fourth liner because he is not a liability like some enforcers. He does not get lost out there and knows how to get back on defense. He also can fight with the best of them. He has a win vs Laraque and a draw vs Boogaard (in the preseason) on his resume.

And I don't even consider him a heavyweight as I do Laraque and Boogard.

Boston. He was a good 4th liner, but that's about it.

Great energy guy, took too many penalties for my liking though.
