The Sharks and Bruins don't share a similar coast. They don't share a different division. Hell, they don't even share a conference. But, one thing they did share is something big: Jumbo Joe Thornton. The former face of the Bruins franchise is now the face of the Sharks and our current Captain (I don't think anyone on our highly intelligent FTF blog need be reminded of his highest ranking on the Bruins: Captain). Where am I going with all this? Despite the thousands of miles between these two cities and, subsequently, these two franchises, they will be forever linked in one Jumbo way. Arguably our best player in our team's history while one of the most controversial in the B's (remember? Thats how we ended up with him :) ).
Obviously, it seems like we got the better end of that deal. So, I expect one huge performance out of our big man in a few days.
