Drew Remenda: Thornton's comment 'wasn't a jab' at McLellan

Former Sharks broadcaster shared his conversation with Thornton on Edmonton radio. Despite getting fired by the organization at the conclusion of last season, few people are more plugged-in to the Sharks than former broadcaster and current Edmonton Oilers color guy Drew Remenda. He provided a sensible, well-informed analysis of what went wrong in San Jose this season on Mercury News columnist Tim Kawakami's podcast last week and today went on Edmonton radio to clarify comments made by Joe Thornton about Todd McLellan during yesterday's media availability. As you'll recall, Thornton said...

Sharks clean-out day: Some links -- A Thornton-McLellan issue? Couture says culture 'not great' and Niemi starts to ponder future

The Todd McLellan era in San Jose isn't over. Not yet, anyway. McLellan said Wednesday that he needs a little more time to decide what he wants to do going forward. Before McLellan spoke to the media, though, Joe Thornton,… Continue Reading →

Tierney leads Sharks to late-season victory over Avalanche

John Scott scored on April Fool's Day as San Jose prevailed over Colorado. There wasn't a whole lot at stake tonight at the Tank as two likely non-playoff teams in the Sharks and Avalanche did battle, and it certainly looked that way on the ice. With the exception of an inadvertent Joe Thornton high-stick that may have claimed a few of Joe Pavelski's teeth, San Jose's 5-1 win over Colorado lacked the kind of intensity usually associated with hockey games at this time of year. Heated matchup or not, though, the Sharks picked up two points to keep their slim postseason hopes alive or at the...

Joe Thornton insists he doesn’t want to leave Sharks

The one real bit of information to come from the weeklong Joe Thornton-Doug Wilson controversy is the fact the ex-captain remains 100 percent loyal to the Sharks. Thornton has made himself more available to the media since making public comments about San Jose’s general manager, and Thornton had something interesting to say in Toronto on Wednesday. With all the white noise surrounding the brief dust-up last week, it’s refreshing to hear Thornton say that. “Jumbo is (almost) 36 years old and he’s playing like he’s 26, which is a good sign for him and for us and for the fans around...

McLellan on Thornton reaching 900th assist in 4-1 win over Leafs: ‘Remarkable, a special feat and he’s got a lot of them left in him’

TORONTO — The questions, as it turned out, were about Joe Thornton’s performance on the ice, not off it. Maybe those of us in San Jose have gotten accustomed to seeing Joe Thornton reach periodic milestones or maybe we lack… Continue Reading →

Mike Milbury would consider sending Joe Thornton to the AHL

Joe Thornton would have to go on waivers, Mike. Here's the exhaustive list of Milbury's genius trades as GM.

Mike Milbury, the greatest GM in league history, suggests sending Joe Thornton to AHL

Poor Bob McKenzie. During his tenure as general manager of the New York Islanders, Mike Milbury was the architect responsible for such incredible moves as trading Roberto Luongo and Olli Jokinen for Oleg Kvasha and Mark Parrish, dealing a young Zdeno Chara, the 2nd overall pick that would become Jason Spezza and Bill Muckalt for Alexei Yashin (whose buyout money is still being paid by Isles ownership today) and swapping 22-year-olds Todd Bertuzzi and Bryan McCabe for one season of Trevor Linden. So when Milbury has something to say about personnel management, it's clear all of us should...
