Quote from: Nik on October 15, 2020, 08:09:22 AMI'm very doubtful we see Thornton in any other NHL uniform but San Jose. He just seems to have entered into the Shane Doan territory of caring more about maintaining what he's got going on lifestyle wise than hockey pursuits.
Quote from: CarltonTheBear on October 15, 2020, 08:13:33 AMI get where you're coming with this but San Jose and Arizona are also very, very different organizations. The Sharks have generally been contenders or contenders-ish during his entire time there. Even the season prior to this one they got to the 3rd round. I think Joe still very much wants to win, and the fact that he expressed how disappointed he was at the deadline when the Sharks couldn't/didn't move him shows that.
Quote from: Nik on October 15, 2020, 08:21:54 AMI don't think for a second Shane Doan ever stopped wanting to win either, he just didn't want to enough to move for it.
Quote from: CarltonTheBear on October 15, 2020, 08:29:58 AMSure, unlike Thornton who has already demonstrated that he is willing to move for it.
Quote from: Joe S. on October 15, 2020, 08:39:40 AMDoes anyone remember the story of why he wanted out of boston?

Quote from: Nik on October 15, 2020, 08:51:55 AMYeah, I always thought the Boston trade thing was noteworthy because it basically came out of nowhere which is why just about everyone looked at it and thought that other teams would have given Boston a better deal if they'd had any notion he was on the market.
