    Chris Thorburn is a marginal NHL player if you can’t see that then you need to take off your blinders – If he wasn’t signed to a 4 year deal paying him close to a million a season last year he probably would have been let go. Sorry if you don’t like my opinion but I’m not going to change it because he got a lucky goal. Look at it again it really wasn’t a nice move. The puck came off of Miller’s pad and right back to his stick. He’s a nice guy but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s -9 and a defensive liability. I think he’d look great in an Ice Cap’s jersey. Thanks for reading.

    Unless your name is Kevin Chevaldayoff then you should stop playing keyboard gm and support the talent we have.

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day – One goal doesn’t change a season where the guy has been a defensive liability. He is a marginal NHL player at best.

    Are you still confident Thorburn doesn’t belong? Role player who has stepped up his game when the jets needed it and a leader on the ice and in the room. Congrats buddy.

    The Jets are without a doubt my favorite team, I forgo my local team to watch Jets games on the internet, but I have to agree with this one. Slater has been a huge surprise for me and he has succeeded despite having Thorburn as a line mate. Give Klingberg a shot, he can only improve, Thorburn I am afraid has peaked, and needs to go. Maybe he just needs to be in a different system to thrive, I wish him luck, he is living the dream all us rec league players wish we could do. Id block Chara’s slapshot just to play one shift for the Jets, as I am sure many other would too. Go Jets
