Pens grab Thorburn from Sabres

Another agitator for the bottom 2 lines for the Pens, and I like it...

According to the Pens, they've claimed forward Chris Thorburn, who was placed on waivers.

After watching him during last Saturday's preseason game between the Pens and Sabres, Thorburn looks like the perfect fit for the Ray Shero-led Penguins roster of 2006. Gritty, decent speed, and gets under the skin of his opponents.

To make room for Thorburn, Dany Sabourin was optioned to WBS, although he does have to clear waivers.

Don't be surprised if he's grabbed, he had a decent preseason.
