Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Nabil Karim of CBC,
So San Jose’s management team has some big time questions to answer.
Does the organization believe Thornton has exorcised his playoff demons? In the twilight of his career, can he deliver consistently for multiple seasons? And what is the right price to pay for number 19?
It will all make for some interesting storylines to follow in California this season.
Will San Jose sign Thornton early on to squash the distraction? Or do they gamble and play out the year to see how Thornton and the Sharks fair this season?
Will Sharks’ general manager Doug Wilson trade Thornton at the deadline to get valuable assets in return, or lose him for nothing in the off-season?
It’s a tough decision to make with any player. It’s even more difficult with a player of Thornton’s calibre and worth.
