That's a really good point, neelynugs. Thornton centering Bert and Nas would just be crazy-good and shows how much Joe is worth and how much he's lost and unmotivated on a horrible bruins team.

It looks like there is not a suitable Joe one-way trade out there that makes sense for the B's or the trade partner. I think that what's really required in a Thornton trade is a package 3-way blockbuster deal. Thornton + another player from the B's in order to snag a big return (Hedjuk + Jovocop, for example).

Perhaps we should change the subject...what THREE WAY TRADES would you suggest involving Joe Thornton. And BTW, I'll retract the Rick Nash comment I made to start off with...but boy, Joe's first two seasons were not world-beaters.
