No, Thornton is not for trade. Neither is Semin. But look at it from a Kings perspective. Why would they give up Jack Johnson for one year of Semin? That would be an awful deal. They would be giving up one of the best young d-men in hockey for one year of Semin, and it would be much worse than what the other teams in these offers are getting. Jack Johnson has more value right now than Semin does.
