from Mark Emmons of the Mercury News,
Joe Thornton has fallen hard for the San Jose lifestyle. And that’s funny considering he didn’t even think it was possible for him to be here in the first place….
Thornton, 31, has had preliminary talks about extending his contract with the Sharks—which ends after this season—and makes it abundantly clear that he wants to stay with the organization.
When it comes to the South Bay, Thornton sounds like a man ready to sign a lifetime contract. He and wife Tabea are building a new home in the Los Gatos-Saratoga area. He has a farmhouse in St. Thomas, Ontario, where he grew up, and the couple has an apartment in Tabea’s native Switzerland.
But, he added, “This is where the Thornton family has put down roots.”
