“I don’t think we’ll focus on his shoulder too much — he’s a pretty hard guy to hit.  For me, if I can put him though the boards, I’ll do that regardless if he has a sore shoulder or not.”

-Kevin Bieksa of the Vancouver Canucks talking about Joe Thornton of the San Jose Sharks.  More on game 5 from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province.

Joe focuses on other players injuries.. like can-opening Franzen into the boards because his ankle was tweaked.. can-opening is illegal by the way, though naturally he wasn’t penalized.  I’d take the shoulder EVERY chance I got

You Red Wing fans (hockeytown?) are such whiners.  Joe expects no quarter, and gives none.  That’s the way hockey is.

Is that why when Franzen whacked him on the shin pad with a stick after the can-opener Joe acted like he was mortally wounded and flopped all over the ice?

Admit it Thornton Fan, instead of becoming a real leader he’s just become a real punk this year.
