It's just weird that people are criticizing Thornton and saying he has a big ego when I haven't read anything of the sort since he became a Shark. And then the same people are calling out Marleau as Mr. Innocent and Mr. Team Player when he had that whole debacle with Ron Wilson (whether it was all RW's fault or not, it still happened).

Are we talking about the same Thornton who changed his game from sitting along the half-boards to playing a very good two-way game because he wanted to help the team win?
It just seems like you're basing your argument on a whole lot of nothing.
Not to mention it's a completely different circumstance of "being the man to not being the man". He's been the go-to-guy on the Sharks because he's been the best player on the Sharks. When he gets older, he won't be the best player on the team anymore.
