from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
“The one thing about Joe is, he makes the players around him that much better,” said Draper. “He has such good vision. He can make those passes, where it doesn’t look as if there’s a lane, but he finds a lane. Even down low, he’s so big and strong and he has that big wingspan he uses to his advantage.
“The best thing to do against a guy like Thornton is to try and make him play in his own end. You want to get some good cycle shifts and some good grind time in the offensive zone. That keeps him 200 feet away from doing something dangerous.”
