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...

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, 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...

San Jose jumping the shark

Sharks open road trip with loss, sits 5 games out of berth

Sharks open road trip with loss, sits 5 games out of berth In a matchup of teams chasing a postseason berth, the Sharks opened a seven-game road trip with a thud Tuesday night and the Jets seized the day with a 5-2 victory in Winnipeg to take over the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference. “We can sit in a corner and cry if we wanted to, but that’s not going to help one bit,” Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. Joe Pavelski scored twice and Joe Thornton assisted on both goals for the Sharks (34-28-8). Winnipeg built a 3-0 first-period lead and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 38 shots...

Purdy: Could Sharks' Wilson-Thornton skirmish lead to trade?

Was San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson trying to provoke veteran Joe Thornton into wanting a trade?

Rift surfaces between Joe Thornton, Doug Wilson

When Wilson answered, during a question-and-answer session for season-ticket holders Thursday, the question of why Thornton was stripped of the team’s captaincy last offseason, he probably didn’t expect Thornton to lash out Friday and he certainly didn’t intend to introduce a distraction when San Jose is desperately trying to focus on a frantic playoff chase. After hearing what Wilson said Thursday, Thornton’s quote Friday — “Doug needs to keep his mouth shut” — was tweeted out by the San Jose Mercury News. Wilson was unavailable to answer a call by The Chronicle, but...
