    [QUOTE]Ask an NHL'er if they would be willing to cheap shot a Bruin with Thornton on the ice. He went after Shelley (I think?) when he hit Kelly. Didn't even wait just dropped them and went after him. It happens frequently. Quoting the Savard hit where no one did anything doesn't help the case. No one realized what happened until it was too late to do anything.

    i don't know any nhlers, so i guess i can't ask them.  it didn't seem to stop sestito from taking a run at horton. 

    he did, however, go after sideshow bob (not shelley) after he hit kelly.

    Right right, my bad.

    Thornton wasn't out there for that play and Horton went after him. Am I wrong to think someone else challenged Sestito later that game?

    I was being facetious, I don't either but I seem to recall a poll saying most players didn't want to fight him.

    nobody challenged sestito.  i think that hit on horton happened in the 2nd, so he would've had plenty of time to do something.

    All I know is that whenever I see a bruin being asked about Thornton...EVERY single time....no matter who they ask..thay have nothing but praise for Thornton and love having him on their team.  That's good enough for me.  I have to assume that his teammates know a heck of alot more about what he means to that team than any of us do.

    NAS is the Lappierre of this board.  poke, disappear. 

    Thornton has 10 pts and 13 fights on the 4th line in 48 games.

    Hamill and Caron have 6 pts and 0 fights in 31 games mainly on the 3rd line.

    13 fights, thats 65 mins of penalties that looch, chara etc. have been on the ice, sucks that we have to lose all the offense though...........oops we dont.

    [QUOTE]post clown post! what's funny is his NAS-ness jokes "at least it's not a TT thread". we all feel the same about your "skating clown" posts. pot meet kettle. how many times can the same thing be hashed, rehashed, then re-re hashed again?  i think we should treat all "skating clown" posts the same way we treat trolls. DON"T FEED THE NAS!!! seriously, how many times does this need to be the topic of a thread? really

    This is the first one in a long, long time.  It's also the first time in a very long time (if ever) that I've seen a hockey player skate away from the puck...in the offensive zone...with no one between him and the goaltender...to try to start a fight. 

    What a clown.

    Re: Skate Clown Skate!

    I'm not a big Thornton fan, but there are times he has his value. I think it's plain silly to pretend Thornton didn't have an impact when inserted into the lineup in the Finals.  I'm not saying he affected the outcome, but he clearly helped change the look of the team for the better.

    My biggest problem is the need for the Bruins (or any other NHL team) to have a Thornton on the bench to go after people who hit Bruins with hard legal checks.  When did the NHL become a no-check girls' league that requires a "response" every time someone gets hit hard?

    I like having Thornton around on the roster as a rotating 4th line guy who can be mixed and matched into the lineup depending on who they are playing and overall health.  Just like the playoffs... dress against Ottawa, Philly, or when the team is sagging in urgency... sit against Detroit and other no hit teams.

    thornton is a force multiplier, he's not the best but what he brings makes the team as a whole better than it would be without him.

    those saying he doesn't have good hands or is borderline useless clearly haven't seen this brilliance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qieRRrtMu6s

    I know when Bobby Orr came along, in that day, one had to answer to the tough guys.  I remember a couple dust ups with Reggie Flemming, and Ted Harris pretty early in his career.  They proved he was pretty much as tough...as he was good.
    It took several years for the culture to change from a reaction to a dirty hit...to any hit that really pasted someone.  It was gradual throughout the 70's.  I think the day Gretzky hit the NHL though, is probably the water shed moment.

    Fluto only has one player who provides comments, so he constantly blows Thornton's horn. Don't blame Thorny, blame no brain Fluto for insipid remarks.
