They still haven’t ‘ripped the skates off’ Shawn Thornton

“The only hesitancy was whether somebody wanted to pay me for another year. I said I’d play until they ripped the skates off me, so looks like it’s going to be another year. Obviously that’s probably going to be it for me and who knows how much I’m going to be in the lineup.

“I think it’s more being around the room and doing the same things that some of the older guys have been doing around here – holding people accountable and helping teammates out with any issues, trying to be a good voice in the locker room.”
