    Ever since he's played most of his career under or just at 200 pounds. He's not exactly Brendan Shanahan or Eric Lindros.

    Kesler would have the immediate impact of reducing Toews defensive responsibilities. Thornton not so much.
    Yep, I do realize the age gap. But Thornton has missed 4 games since the 2005 lockout, so at least you can be relatively sure he's gonna play. And although Jumbo may not be a defensive stopper, he can play a 200 foot game just fine, and his offensive game is head and shoulders above Kesler's. And either way, so what? Let Toews handle the tough matchups, I don't care about his point totals and he can handle those matchups just fine.

    Well said. I'd rather have 2-3 seasons of Thornton over whatever Kesler would give you. I like the thought of Kesler in a Pens sweater.
