Halfway in…seems like these guys take 100% of their views from the stats and love to bash the establishment. I think there are a lot of merits to the claim that Thornton is a loser. Would be happy to discuss.

Kyle Demetrius

Hey John. I am one of those guys. What would you like to discuss?

John

I think that the narrative that Joe Thornton is a bad playoff player/loser has a lot of merit. In hindsight, one of the worst decisions of Wilson’s tenure was making that trade and then continually keeping Thornton.

Alicia

What? How can you say that one of the worst decisions of Wilson’s tenure was to trade for Thornton? He was one of our best players for years and he’s invaluable in the locker.

Barry Bonds had a bad post season rep until he didn’t. was he bad for the Giants? i think he was part of the reason Giants bb was saved for the Bay Area. he didn’t do it altruistically, but that’s not relevant.

John

The assumption is that the rep Thornton has is unfair because he’s just been a product of bad luck and circumstance, and not actually of his own failings that make him a much less useful player come the playoffs.

The story is in on Thornton. During his time as a leading player in the NHL, he was an absolute playoff failure. Winning the cup as the tertiary piece on the team won’t change that.

david barnard

i think there’s merit to the case both PM and Jumbo have been post season disappointments throughout their careers. neither were able to carry this team to much success. it drags on their HHoF aspirations. they weren’t even the best Sharks playoff performers-which belongs to LC and even Pavelski imo.
