Sharks C Thornton undergoes ACL surgery before free agency

Sharks C Thornton undergoes ACL surgery before free agency
sharks-c-thornton-undergoes-acl-surgery-before-free-agency
 he had more pressing business.,[url=http://www.sharkshockeyshop.com/adidas-martin-jones-jersey]Authentic Martin Jones jersey[/url], Before Joe Thornton heads into an uncertain offseason where he could be a free agent and leave San Jose after nearly 12 years

Thornton underwent surgery on a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee Monday to repair an injury that sidelined him less than two weeks before he returned to play the final four games of a first-round series loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

" general manager Doug Wilson said. "You see a player play with that type of injury tells you all you need to know about him.","I've been in this business a long time

 calling it simply "the normal stuff that hockey players deal with" at this time of the season.,Thornton downplayed the injury before the team announced the severity of what he played through and the surgery

But his willingness to play four playoff games on basically one leg at age 37, was just another example of how important he is to San Jose and why the team wants him back this summer before he can become a free agent., and record two assists

"Basically his knee is floating there, him doing what he did," coach Peter DeBoer said. "It was as courageous an effort,[url=http://www.penguinsofficialhockey.com/adidas-kris-letang-jersey]adidas Kris Letang jersey[/url], that's not even on my radar.", as I've ever seen. And I didn't see a drop off in his game. I know the point production wasn't there. I think there's some answers for that, including power play and fatigue and some things like that. Until his level drops where he has to take a reduced role

 with Marleau joining as the second-overall draft pick in 1997 and Thornton coming in a trade from Boston in 2005.,[url=http://www.sharkshockeyshop.com/adidas-joe-pavelski-jersey]adidas Joe Pavelski jersey[/url],The futures of Thornton and teammate Patrick Marleau are the biggest questions for San Jose headed into the offseason. The two have been the face of the Sharks for years

"I want to come back, I'd like to come back. But we'll have to see. I'm sure we'll be talking."," Thornton said. "I think this is a Stanley Cup-caliber team and I think I'm a little bit older and I realize how good this team is. Of course

They have been two of the league's most prolific players during their tenure,[url=http://www.sharkshockeyshop.com/adidas-patrick-marleau-jersey]adidas Patrick Marleau jersey[/url],000th assist., with Marleau scoring his 500th career goal this season and Thornton recording his 1

Thornton's production fell a bit this season. His 50 points were his fewest in a non-lockout season since he was a teenager in Boston in 1998-99. Thornton was also a key part of a power play that was ranked 25th in the regular season after years of being at the top of the league.

Marleau scored 27 goals this season and played a stronger overall game as evidenced by his improving plus-minus from negative 22 to four.

 raising questions about how long San Jose will want to commit to them.,Both players will turn 38 before the start of next season

" defenseman Brent Burns said. "Both those guys,"Guys like that aren't growing on trees,[url=http://www.sharkshockeyshop.com/adidas-joe-thornton-jersey]adidas Joe Thornton jersey[/url], those guys are both in great shape. Every day they put the work in. They're elite players. Age doesn't matter.", you hear about the age stuff

Wilson called both players cornerstones of the franchise on and off the ice and seemed interested in them coming back. Both players also publicly expressed the same desire but the sides must come to terms on length and value.

There have been no talks yet between the parties and it is extremely unlikely any deal would be finalized before the expansion draft in June.

The other key questions for the Sharks headed into the offseason are who they will protect in the expansion draft and will they be able to reach long-term extensions with goalie Martin Jones and shut-down defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic.

Both players are eligible for free agency in 2018 but can sign extensions after July 1. Wilson said he would like to get those deals done before training camp.

" Wilson said. "Those are priorities.","Both of them are extremely important to get under contract

 NHL head coach,Two decades of Paul Maurice

 “great job security” wouldn’t make the cut very often. Even a Stanley Cup ring (or two) won’t save them from the cutting block in plenty of cases.,If a typical NHL coach listed perks of the gig

With that in mind, or would it be wiser to describe his longevity as … stealthy?, let’s take a step back and just admire the persistence of Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice. Is persistence the better word

It might be hard to believe,[url=http://www.penguinsofficialhockey.com/adidas-kris-letang-jersey]Authentic Kris Letang jersey[/url], that’s not a typo. Check out his hockeydb page if you need proof/also want to see a photo of Young Paul Maurice., but Maurice has been employed as an NHL head coach consistently since 1995-96. No

Long story short: Maurice has been an NHL head coach since before the Carolina Hurricanes and “South Park” existed.
