Rumor - Doug Maclean: "I'm hearing San Jose"

just said it on the Fan Hockey Central. he said that Burke is working hard and desperately trying to do something. didn't quite say it, but made the suggestion that it could be Joe Thornton.

what do you think?

Nothing more can be said.....

EDIT: I will do something extremely embarrassing in public if it's Marleau or Thornton. I don't care what people say about Thornto, I really like the guy and would welcome him in a Leaf uniform

If it is I don't think leafs fans will like what they have to give up for him. Would also add new fire to the leafs/Bruins scenario which I guess could make things interesting but also annoying.

I love the whole "DESPERATELY" Thing.

Any knowledgeable fan knows to stop listening right there.

If Burke was DESPERATE, he would have already pulled a JFJ move.

Nice one, Maclean.

He's another Eklund. And WHY. NO Just tell me WHY San Jose would trade Joe Thornton AFTER he was the highest point getter in the playoffs till his team got out.

Impossible, unless he's trying to get Couture or someone.

Would be nice but I doubt it...Thornton has had two consecutive good playoffs where he has shown he can lead that team....perhaps Patrick Marleau if its true? But again...San Jose isn't giving away players...Either one of these guys would garner a Kulemin/Kadri as part of the package as well or potentially a Luke Schenn.

I think he'd be perfect. Price would be huge though.

Pavelski would be sick, a line of
kule-pavelski-grabo would be sick

thornton: too old, might as well try for richards. Pavelski: can put up pts, but I doubt he can play against top pairing d. Marleau: too old!

If he's going to get anybody from San Jose it would be pavelski, DEFINTELY not big Joe.

I think that we would hear about SJ asking Thornton to waive his NTC first.

i'm not a huge fan either but this could be a fantastic top 6:

Lupul Thornton Kessel
Mac Grabo Kulemin


hopefully the asking price isn't Kulemin +

It 100% won't be Thornton.

If anything it'll be Marleau. Similar to Philly unloading a guy (or holy **** guys ) because they have a young incumbent.

They have 4 C's in Thornton, Marleau, Pavelski, and Couture.

IMO Marleau's the odd one out.

Dont know if I'm that stoked on Marleau, but I'll take anyone at the right price.

I may be in the minority, but I'd be perfectly content if we got Pavelski to play with Kessel for next season.

Criminally underrated player.

This is what everyone thought until yesterday morning. And we all know how yesterday played out.

Not saying it will/could happen. But I don't see why people are against getting Thorton.

A BIG bodied centre with experience. One of the best, (if not the best-let's not get into a debate) pass first centre's in the league.

Left handed shot as well; perfect for setting up a Left handed shot on the RW
