The problem here is that you are looking at it like the sharks are trading 1 year of Thornton. He is their captain and all signs point to him wanting to remain in san jose for the rest of his career. From san jose's perspective, it is reasonable to assume that they are giving up 4 years(or more) of their captain and best player. Yes he has to sign a new contract and his cap hit may go up a little, but that shouldn't be an issue. This is why the asking price is Huberdeau++.

Florida or any team that traded for thornton would only be getting 1 year of him, which is worth a lot less.
