Joe Thornton

Comcast Sportsnet: Joe Thornton could be asked to waive no-trade-clause if the San Jose Sharks start poorly. Why was he stripped of his captaincy?

Larry Robinson Quote:

Robinson suggested in an interview earlier this summer that not everyone in the dressing room was receptive to the affable Thornton’s brand of humor, so maybe easing off a bit in that department is a good place for him to start. Michal Rozsival is entering the last year of his contract. The Chicago Blackhawks have to get under the salary cap and Rosival could be a prime candidate to get traded. The issue is Rosival’s age and injuries make him a hard player to trade. The Montreal Canadiens have opted to go with four alternate captains rather than giving one player the Captaincy. Andrei Markov, P.K. Subban, Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty will all be alternate captains this season.
