Not really considering Jeff Jillson played as well in Boston as McLaren did in San Jose and Boston needed a goalie badly and some how managed to get San Jose to trade for Jeff Hackett then send him to Boston.

And why do San Jose fans bring up that trade any time Boston/San Jose are mentioned?

Don't blame Boston posters on this one, a San Jose poster started it this go round.

San Jose has been a contender every year since they dealed for Thornton, but I guess you have to be a fool to take a center who pretty much guarantees that you are a contender.
You should run him out of town so that you can be the average to bad team that you where before you acquired him

Instead of coming up with useless drivel like that, how about you actually try and make a point that makes sense?
It's not that hard to try and give arguments on how and why someone else is wrong, it easily beats the childish behaviour you have shown. Not that mentioning any deal from the past was necessary either.
And Boston has been a better team without Thornton then with him. Thornton couldn't get Boston out of the 1st round, a change was needed. The return sucked but Thornton needed to go and he fits great with San Jose and the California hockey culture vs. The Northeast hockey culture.
