There is too much "Thorton was the entire problem in Boston" going on in some minds here IMO.



And how many players that ever finished in top 10 Hart voting got traded during the season?

I don't have to look it up to know that it is less than a dozen, probably quite a bit less, that trade says more about the management in Boston at the time than Joe.
Doesn't it tell you anything that pro-rating over the whole season he goes from 11th at the time to 3rd in scoring? Don't you think there is a reason none of the other guys in front of him at the time kept up that pace?

Anyway, its kind of funny that here in the History section we have people making an argument based strictly on points scored.
