[Rumour] Rangers interested in acquiring Joe Thornton

79 posts in this topic

According to Boston Globe's Kevin Paul Dupont:

Now that Rick Nash is a Ranger, don’t be surprised to see the Blueshirts make a real play for Jumbo Joe Thornton. Nash and Thornton were magic together in Davos, Switzerland, during the last lockout, and have paired like hand and glove in the Olympics for Team Canada. Thornton would have to allow the Sharks to make the deal, but it’s probably a good time for him to go. He has played 1,077 games — 545 with the Sharks, 532 with the Bruins. Still without a Cup.

They'd have to give us Del Zotto or a couple other good young prospects as well as some bottom 6 depth. That'd be one scary top 6 tho, it makes ours look REALLLLLLLLLY SMALL.

It's amazing to think that they actually have the cap space for this.

Apparently, Slats believes that Wilson is as easily played as Howson...

It would be easier for Tortorella to tell Joe to Shut up.

It's possible.

The Rags have a ton of prospects and NHL caliber players that they could give up. The still have a lot of cap due to Sather's perfect trade (cap wise).

Why not?

Heck, why not just acquire the league and demote whoever doesn't make the top roster?

Why would they want Thornton, they already have a 1st line center in Brad Richards. They don't even have the assets to acquire Thornton. If I was the Sharks gm i'd ask for Boyle + Mcdonagh +

Hopefully the sharks gm isn't as dumb as Howson, I can see the sharks get a large return if it happens.
