What good does running around hitting people and creating energy do if they get scored on? Don't get me wrong, I'd love a high energy big hitting defensively responsible 4th line, but defensively responsible comes first. That's what our 4th line is right now. Besides, a healthy team could see a 4th line of Abby-Glendening-Helm and that actually could be a decent energy line. Either way, we don't really have room for Thornton.
I don't want Thornton, but I'll take a younger enforcer. We have plenty of room, especially with our injury projection for next season.
Abby is a guy that Babcock puts on the top line. What makes you think he'll be a 4th liner all of a sudden in the coach's mind? A team that puts a jobber like Abby on the top line has plenty of room for an enforcer.
