We're extremely fortunate that he's with us and it's going to help us."Coach Bob Boughner felt similarly for Thornton, but also knows the center's value to a young roster."When you start to see one of his best buddies in (Marleau) go and you see some of the other action around the league and (Goodrow), another unbelievable individual, you start thinking 'What if?'" Boughner said. I'm happy he stayed."Thornton, with 1,628 games played, is second all-time in the NHL without winning a Stanley Cup. Marleau, who has played 1,715 games, is first.
