Joe Thornton, Hall of Famer

With Joe Thornton getting older, there has inevitably been talk about him getting in the Hockey Hall of Fame after he retires. There are very few players that are absolute shoe-ins, and getting in on your first ballot is extremely hard. But we have to ask the question, is Thornton a worthy Hall of Famer? To me, the answer is pretty simple, and it's a definitive yes. I'll...

WATCH: Joe Thornton undresses Corey Crawford on shootout goal

Joe Thornton never heard his name called for a shootout for three seasons before the current campaign. Now he’s three-for-three in shootout goals this year, and after laying waste to Corey Crawford with a beautiful toe-drag move in the Sharks 2-1 shootout win over the Blackhawks last night, he might be getting the skills competition call more often. Observe: One more time: I...

Joe Thornton gets credited with the most bizarre goal of the young NHL season

When you stick 12 grown men with knives attached to their shoes on a frozen ice surface and let them chase around a vulcanized rubber biscuit with sticks, weird things are bound to happen. This Joe Thornton goal against the Canucks certainly classifies as weird. Watch as Thornton attempts to fire the puck around the glass before it ricochets towards the net and takes a weird hop...

Here is the actual Joe Thornton quote about his Penis

Everyone is all like " Oh I can't believe Joe Thornton said that..." and they don't link to anything. Here is what he said via Deadspin: Hearing a question to Marleau about Hertl and whether he was showboating, Thornton said: “Shut up, have you ever played the game?” When the press turned his way, he then added: “I’d have my **** out if...

Joe Thornton has given us the quote of the year

According to San Jose Sharks forward Joe Thornton a four goal game deserves a very special kind of celebration. “I’d have my c— out if I scored four goals. I’d have my c— out, stroking it,” I guess we might need a little exposition for that quote to make any sense whatsoever. In case you are one of the select few who haven’t heard the legend of Tomas Hertl, here is...

Joe Thornton would pull, um, 'it' out if he scored four goals

Tomas Hertl has received plenty of unnecessary criticism for his nifty fourth goal against the New York Rangers. Apparently some people thought Hertl was showboating when he pulled the puck between his legs and lifted it over Martin Biron.  What does Joe Thornton think about the situation?

Blooper: Joe Thornton has puck on his what?

Usually our broadcast bloopers involve a typo or an error in a graphic during an NHL game. This time we switch things up, highlighting an incredible slip of the tongue during Comcast SportsNet's coverage of the Sharks and Avalanche on Feb. 26.  Where exactly did Joe Thornton have the puck?  To be fair, the sentence blurs a bit together here. Clearly, the intended word...

On Those Joe Thornton Trade Rumors

via David Pollak of Working the Corners, ...nothing out there suggests the Sharks might be receptive to an offer for Thornton, and that really is what matters most, no? Never say never, of course, but here’s a reality check. While Doug Wilson has a stock line of being open to whatever will improve his team, it’s not likely that the Rangers are going to offer Henrik Lundqvist...
