No ‘C’ In San Jose?

from Craig Custance of ESPN,

Right now, Thornton is the captain of the Sharks. But Sharks head coach Todd McLellan proposed another idea for next season.

“What would happen if nobody wore a letter on our team this year? Not a single guy?” McLellan said during a conversation early Saturday. “What if nobody wore a letter? We’d still be the San Jose Sharks and we’d be a leadership group. What would happen?”

Is that something the Sharks would consider?

“I don’t know,” McLellan answered.

The solution in search of a problem, or the answer the the question nobody is asking?

Or a passive aggressive way of stripping Thornton of the captaincy in hopes that he’ll realize they don’t want him arounfpd and he’ll agree to a trade.

In which case, when the season opens and the Sharks do have two As and a C, McLellan can pretend he was just thinking out loud.

Next they’ll start saying “what smells” whenever Thornton walks in the room.
