Joe Thornton’s genial nature hid a competitive fire.

That’s the heart of former San Jose Sharks beat writer Kevin Kurz’s retrospective on Thornton, ranked 32nd on The Athletic’s top-100 modern NHL players list.

Logan Couture, Dan Boyle, Ryane Clowe, Jeremy Roenick, Patrick Marleau, and of course, Jumbo himself, were among the voices tapped in this fun look-back at a better time in Sharks history.

There’s a great story about when Clowe got so riled up by Thornton, he elbowed Boyle in the face.
