The best thing is that nobody is wearing #24 so Joe can just slide right in.

Simmonds took 24 immediately because 2+4 = 6ix

It's gonna be really weird seeing him in a Leafs uniform. He played so long for Boston and then SJ you got used to seeing him in those jerseys. This is like Ron Francis 2.0

The way it's going I was thinking more like Brian Leetch.... ;)

The worst was seeing Gilmour in a habs jersey. It makes my skin crawl.

Yeah, I was surprised Carlton didn't have him as part of the permanent marker section.

Hey now I did group him differently than the large group of maybes. I think he's basically permanent I just wasn't sure if he was 3RW or 4RW.

Thornton called all his teammates in San Jose before the deal was announced. Classy dude. Mike Johnson says he a massive loser because Joe is still playing and he's been retired for 10 years.

He wore 97 with Team Canada when 19 and 91 were both taken.

Feels like 66 would be the way to go there.

I live in St Thomas. I wonder how fast the sports bars can redecorate. ;D
Please take a picture of Jumbo the Elephant and post it. But put a Leaf sweater on it first.

September 17, 1997, the day Joe Thornton picked up his first-ever point while wearing an NHL uniform (an assist in a 3-2 Bruins preseason win against the Blues in Oklahoma City), is also the day Auston Matthews was born.


How fitting would it be if Thornton's last point is an OT assist to Matthews for the Stanley Cup winning goal?
;)
I like the way you think, so I think I will have a drink.

I was not expecting him to sign for $700k at all. Even Koivu got $1.5mil.

He's worth $700k for the facial hair alone!

Will do. As soon as I find a XXXXXXXXXL jersey.
