san jose doesnt have to trade him... boston did. so motivated seller will lower the price. cap era obviously factors in here. alot of teams wouldnt see thornton as the missing piece to get him over the top cause he doesnt seem to care enough about the playoffs to elevate his game at crunch time.
overall... if san jose did want to move thornton i could see toronto making some sense. the top pick and a guy like schenn would be way more value then thornton got last time around. i dont see many other teams beating that offer. maybe throw in connolly or bozek as a cap dump and call it a done deal
I don't think we say his value that day at all since he wasn't shopped it's hard to get an understanding of a guys value when he's not shopped for the best offer
