Stamkos would have 160 goals with Thornton on same line. Not that they would be but would make a very good PP

Yes from a Lightning perspective, add a good defenseman and get out of a long contract. I know most Lightning fans would disagree with me though, Lecavalier is still a face of the franchise.

HELL. NO. Lecavalier is the worse player with the worse contract, and we add a high-upside young PMD for an average forward prospect? Yeah, no thanks.

Oh god.

shut it down, shut it down! this is gonna get out of hand

As a Lightning fan I would do this. I can't see why San Jose would though...

Would hate to see Vinny go. But hey, it's freaking Jumbo Joe!


EDIT: @OP, did you ninja-edit in Tampa's 2013 1st? B/C that might make the deal more reasonable...

We need someone who can score goals, we have Marty to dish to Stamkos. Thornton is also terrible in the playoffs, no thanks.

I did edit it, J.T Brown is NHL material.

*I still can't believe the Sharks traded away Jamie McGinn, especially at that price.

Kill it with fire!!!

Hate to break it to you, but I feel Lecavalier will be with TBL for the rest of his life.

Expect to see 26 and 4 in the rafters of the St. Petes Forum or whatever the hell the Lightnings arena is called.

You need to watch some Sharks playoff games.

Oh absolutely, J.T. Brown looked fantastic playing on Vinny's wing. It's not unreasonable to expect him to start next season there as well, the kid can play.

Still can't see this trade happening though. For many reasons.

All I will say is that if Thornton is feeding Stamkos goals, hes gonna be the run-away winner for the Richard.

Awful. We have absolutely ZERO need for Vinny as we have mulitple top 6 centers. We need WINGERS. Thornton has been our best player both in the regular and in the postseason the last few years.

Replace Vinny with MSL and it's at least tolerable. But really we're not trading Thornton.

Vinny has 5 more playoff goals in half as many games. Vinny scored only 4 less goals in our cup season the Joe has in all his years with Sharks. Much rather have Vinny.

I remember Heatley's 143 goal season with Thornton.

I like Joe and all but I don't see what this solves for us.

.... Joe isn't a goalscorer.

He also helps his team actually get to the playoffs a lot more...
