This weekend marks a decade since Thornton—one of the best hockey players in the world—was drafted first overall by a rebuilding Boston Bruins franchise in search of a saviour. On his bedroom wall back then was the iconic photo of Bobby Orr flying through the air after netting the 1970 Stanley Cup-winning goal for the Bruins.
Things to come, perhaps.
But now, the image may be just a reminder of Thornton’s rough luck in Boston and the team’s inability to reach the heights so many thought possible that June day in 1997.
