I think they traded him because they wanted to move in new directions, aka rebuild.
They went from being a great regular season team to being a lotery team, whuch everyone knew would happen including boston management.
Today I learnt being 26 means you're a veteran. San Jose sent forwards Marco Sturm and Wayne Primeau and defenseman Brad Stuart to the Bruins for Thornton... there were no picks. They traded him for a shake-up because they were last place, not because they wanted to rebuild their team. And it was a terrible trade either way.
