Who said enforcers can't score

That's over half a mill per goal. Those must be pretty important goals.

Oddly enough, they came in the game the Rags lost to the Flyers in a shootout that sent the Flyers on their Finals march that ended with Mr. Softee. This march included the biggest comeback ever in the history of professional sports against the Boston Bruins.

The next year, with Shelley in the roster, the team lost ignominiously in the second round. Against the Boston Bruins.

Coincidence? We report - you decide.

Of course they can score.

Jody Shelley scored two goals in a game once. True Story.

Then Homer gave him a 3-year, $3.3M contract...

Well said rad...first thing that popped into my head. Though Thornton is a much better enforcer than Shelley...at least as far as a player and fighter goes. But Shelley might be better in the room.

Thornton's on the Cup. Twice. I'll take that in the room 11 times out of 10.

And, despite his just 8:50 TOI (and almost 2 minutes/game in the box) he's one of four guys to have played in every game for da Broons this season with Bergeron, Horton and Kelly.

Last year he had 10 minutes TOI, played in 79 games with 10 goals and 10 assists.

This for $812K cap hit for the past two years.

By contrast Shelley has 11 goals since 2005-2006 and 10 assists since 09-10, has played in 14 games this season with 4:42 TOI and a little more than a minute/game in the box and hasn't played more than 60 games in a season since 2008-2009.

For three years at $1.1M per.

You want an enforcer? Fine. Get a better one. Cheaper.
