Kyper reported the Thornton and Marleau news about 10 days ago. They would re-sign for the same money they are currently making for 3-4 years. Gorton was part of the management team in Boston which felt they would never win with Joe and wanted to build the team around Bergeron. Boston won the Cup in 2011 and lost in the final in 13 with Bergeron as their #1 center and signature player. Bergeron played with a collapsed lung in last June's finals. Only a hockey player plays with that injury. Boston could have won their 2nd Cup in 3 years with a healthy Bergeron. SJ has never reached a Cup final since Thornton has been there. Thornton's agent Joe Resnick was confident Thornton would stay in SJ.
