If you didn’t tune in to NBCS Bay Area’s pre-game show on Thursday, you missed out on having your heart crushed right before the puck dropped on a new season. The video team at NBCSCA put together a tribute to Joe Thornton that punctured through my several layers of denial about his signing in Toronto.

Check it out below if you haven’t yet. It’s not a fun watch and it will hurt your feelings, if you still have any.

I know, I know, don’t oversell it.

God, I miss him.
