Joe Thornton Had Quite A Bit To Day Today

from David Pollak of the Mercury News,

A little more than a month after Joe Thornton told his general manager to "shut his mouth," the veteran center took two jabs at his coach during Wednesday's locker clean-out session.

No changes were made in the Sharks hierarchy, but Todd McLellan's future remains in doubt. McLellan has said he wanted to discuss his situation with his family before deciding if it made sense to come back for the final year of his contract.

"I have no idea," Thornton said when asked if a coaching change was needed. "Todd has to talk to his family. Maybe he should talk to this family as well in here. We'll see what happens."...

When Thornton was asked, he said failure to make the playoffs shows there is room for improvement as far as team culture. Where would that improvement need to come from?

"Everywhere," he said. "It comes from the coaches, and they bring it down to us. It comes from everywhere."
