Not exactly the right kind of guy to bring into THIS environment and WAY too much t give up for him on top of it.
Thorton has led the Sharks in playoff scoring 5 of the past 6 years. I think he gets dumped on a lot because of the lack of team success.

His age is definitely a concern, as is his $7M for the next two years, but I think the playoff thing has been blown out of proportion. He has a better playoff ppg average than Nick since he's been in the league.
