Joe Thornton offers a tip of hat to coach Burns

Joe Thornton offers a tip of hat to coach Burns

It’s been nine years since the Bruins made the franchise-altering trade that sent captain Joe Thornton to the San Jose Sharks, but the former MVP still believes he owes a great deal of his success to his first coach in the NHL.Thornton was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1997 draft and made the team as an 18-year-old, the same year Pat Burns became the Bruins head coach.“He taught me to be a man at a young age,” Thornton said. “Throughout my career I was happy to have a hard coach like that, but he was fair to me. Yeah, I’m proud of him.”

Sharks at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 6. Sharks at Rangers.   Wonder if Jumbo Soft-shelled Shrimp Joe Thornton, stripped of his captaincy, will insult the Rangers again. The Sharkies (4-0-1)  haven’t lost a game yet, except for that gimmicky competition they held after the game at Nassau Coliseum Thursday. They finish their three-game/four-night NYC-area trek...

Thornton scores 1200th point in win over Devils

Thornton scores 1200th point in win over Devils

Sharks improve to 4-0-1 on the season with a 4-2 victory in New Jersey. Against all odds, Joe Thornton's 1200th NHL point was a goal and not an assist like the 857 he's artfully crafted over the course of his Hall Of Fame-worthy career, including for his previous five points on the season. It was an empty-netter met with little fanfare from the Prudential Center crowd who were largely already scrambling for the exits at the end of a 4-2 Sharks win over New Jersey but it served as another reminder that, for all the misplaced criticism Thornton has taken over his career from the media, fans...

Oh Captain My Lack Of A Captain: Thornton, Marleau, Pavelski get 'A's

Oh Captain My Lack Of A Captain: Thornton, Marleau, Pavelski get 'A's

Well that was anticlimactic. Less than a month after being stripped of the captaincy, Joe Thornton got a letter sewn back onto his jersey today as he, Patrick Marleau (who was stripped of the alternate captaincy himself last month only to get it back) and Joe Pavelski are currently warming up for the season opener on Staples Center ice with 'A's on their respective sweaters. Marc-Edouard Vlasic will also rotate in as an alternate captain at times this season. So the Sharks enter the year without an official captain but also without any reasonable explanation for why the entire charade of...
