Shawn Thornton first got to know Dale Tallon more than a decade ago. Now that the two have been reunited with the Florida Panthers, the veteran forward knows exactly what his new general manager expects from him.

“At this point, I know my role and the job fairly well,” Thornton told South Florida media members Thursday. “Dale didn’t need to stress it too much to me. We’ve known each other for a long time and I think he knows how self-aware I am, if I’m self-aware at all, and what he needs to tell me. So there wasn’t too much being said, except that he was excited that I was excited to come there. I was very pleased that they were as interested.”
