I'm stunned that some - obviously utterly ignorant - people always come up with sarcastic posts where they try their best to degrade Cheechoo's accomplishments. We all know Thornton's a great playmaker, and it's exactly that what a finisher like Cheechoo is expected to take advantage of. That's what team sports is about, putting together elements that complement each other very well. If it wasn't for Cheechoo's scoring touch, Thornton wouldn't have gotten the assists either. Both of them benefitted from each other's skill. And no player just wins the Rocket Richard, he has to earn it. Pay the guy some respect, it's not his fault that he had double sports hernia. He's always had an exemplary work ethic. It's mainly his finishing skills, chemistry with Big Joe and that work ethic that got him the league lead in goals that season. I just don't understand how someone can mock a guy like Jonathan. Some people don't know anything about this sport, or what's important in a person/life. Just classless...
if cheechoo just needs a center to assist him, hell I wish Sather would have put him with Richards..
I know I know we have Wolski and Gaborik.. But if this kid can score 50 off good feeds, I would LOVE to see how he did with Richards.
Anyways, its a moot point since he is with JD and the Blues.. Heres to you Cheech!
obviously not well. Dallas invited him to training camp a couple yrs ago; they did not sign Cheech. 3 orgs have had a close look at him, and 27 other teams have passed on him. he is not an NHL-level player anymore.

That guy is one mcdonalds french fry away from a mass coronary attack. Someone rush him a small fry!
The org liked him enough to give him a tryout with their AHL club last October. Guess they didn't like him enough to sign though.
He didn't want to be signed, we let him play in Worcester so he could try and earn an NHL job with another club. We simply didn't have room for him in San Jose. Sharks org really likes Cheech and have gone out of their way several times to try and help him out.
Kids all heart and no one likes to see a guy like that struggle so much.
