    Why does Shawn Thornton get so much ice?

    The guy is terrible. I was at the game Monday and I feel like he was out there about every 3rd shift.

    They have about a 1% chance to score and they definitely have the highest percentage to get scored against compared to any other line.

    Its not like this 4th line is some amazing shut down line.

    Get them off the ice. (I live Paille......Begin, not so much.....Thornton....TERRIBLE)

    I just checked the box score and it says Thornton only had 8 minutes off ice, but it really feels like he is out there all the time.

    Just a liability this guy.

    I don't get the consternation regarding Thornton. 6-8 minutes a night, provides a physical presence, and will be there when this idiot Cody comes calling. We've got bigger things to worry about then Thornton.

    FYI, want to have some fun? Go to the Buffalo News and read some of the comments Sabres fans are making. Wow, and I thought Bruins fans could be pessimistic!

    Thorntons' biggest contribution is keeping the other team honest and making them pay when they aren't, and he does it really really well.

    Thornton brings three attributes to this Bruins team:  1] enthusiasm  2/3 His two rock hard fists. Nothing more, nothing less. In the faster more wide open NHL his future is limited

    Paille? You've got to be kiddng me. Paille is the poor-man's Chuckie Kobasew? Someone remind me why they made that trade? I'd rather see Thornton on the ice than a number of the morons. Wheeler (gotta be Hal Gil's cousin - same wussy expression on his face all the time), Ryder looks like he sniffs glue, or Andy "I got another owie" Ference to name a few. (Yeah, I'd rather see Thornton logging 15 minutes a night playing D - Ference will be out again shortly, mark my words).  But in all seriousness, they should bump Thornton up a slot and have him take Wheeler's spot. Wheeler is definitely the most useless player on the team.
