If Thornton has a NMC, would he, theoretically-speaking, choose to play for a club such as the Leafs?

What about Joe Thorton from the Sharks

I would not trade Kessel for Joe...however I would look at moving Phuenef plus something for him..since we got depth at defence.

The problems with that, as I see it, are:

1) San Jose has depth on D as well
2) San Jose is, in theory, only trading Thornton to save cap space
3) Phaneuf doesn't provide good value at 6.5



Truths need to be spoken loud.

Because an entire season of you ripping on him wasn't enough?  Sometimes the horse is dead, no matter how long you want to continue beating it.

He's a major problem with the team so Surprise!  I get to rip him. If that annoys you, just do your level best to ignore me. If you disagree, well, praise him to the skies. It's your prerogative and unlike you I won't say it isn't.

I never said it isn't your prerogative to do so.  I criticized the amount you do so without adding further to the discussion of Phaneuf that hasn't been said 100x already, probably by you.  By all means continue, I'll find my 'prerogative' to comment on it if I'm in the mood.

Fair enough and I'll try to dial back on wholly gratuitous stuff ... But be warned     I like to use  Big Red Type once in awhile.

Yeah, but you know what you get when you keep on beating a dead horse? Deliciously tender horse meat.

Phaneuf and Kadri for Thornton and Hertl. :)

Thornton refuses to leave Sharks amid trade rumours

His name has been linked in no shortage of trade rumours, the most recent coming last week in a web report indicating the Toronto Maple Leafs, among others, might once again have him on their radar.
