This, although I actually like Thornton. Both teams have guys that stir it up good then run away so this is not surprising. Too bad we didn't have Thornton when Datsyuk was "accidentally elbowed in the jaw".
I believe there would be more dirty play if fighting/enforcing were completely taken out of the game. And teams sit their enforcer against the Wings because their average player could beat up most of the Wings. An enforcer is overkill for them.
