I don’t know if it’s because the New York Post broke the story over the holiday weekend or if it’s because it just sounds so crazy, but the whole “Joe Thornton wants out of Boston” rumor hasn’t picked up a ton of speed.
Even so, the Bruins are in full damage control mode.
GM Mike O’Connell says relations are great with Thornton. Of course, things are always going really well with GMs. Right up until the moment a player leaves.
Funny how that works out.
