Will Anyone Recognize Thornton

from the Tri-Valley Herald,
There may be a few hundred hockey-wise people out there who grasped the significance of it, but the Bay Area at large still doesn't really have a clue just how colossal an acquisition the San Jose Sharks made last week when they traded for Boston center Joe Thornton. At least as it would rank within the respective sports, nabbing Thornton is bigger than the Raiders' swap for Randy Moss or the Warriors' deal for Baron Davis. Suffice it to say the A's couldn't acquire a comparably young impact right-handed stick unless they traded for Albert Pujols.
