At what point is San Jose going to rebuild? Thornton, Marleau, Havlat and Clowe are all 30+. They should think about trading some of them for picks and prospects and build another core around Couture.
Maybe when the team stops dominating. I swear, San Jose has one lackluster season and everyone jumps on their roster. Thornton is to San Jose what Iginla is to Calgary. He will never be traded unless a GM offered a deal he ought to be fired for even considering.
