i've got to agree wtih you about thorn. well i don't know if i'd call him amazing just yet as his teams haven't really done anything, but dude knows how to pull off a majour trade. that's for sure.

Even in landing vince, he still ridded himself of his own headache (mourning), and gave up essentially NOTHING else.

This Dallas trade looks great for him too if it ever comes up.

The problem i have with him is his re-upping of Carter. I know it's said to have been a move pushed by ownership, but that's where thorn should have taken a stand and reminded his boss who is the actual GM. He gave in and now the team is suffering.
