I think Boston has lost it's mind, and SJ is about to start their SHARK ATTACK!!!
Here are various reports on the trade:
The Boston Bruins shipped Joe Thornton to the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday for Wayne Primeau, Marco Sturm and Brad Stuart. Thornton, 26, is a three-time all-star who had nine goals and 24 assists in 23 games this season for the Bruins. The six-foot-four, 223-pound power forward is in the first year of a $20 million US, three-year contract and is due to make $6.66 million this year.FULL STORY...
Instead of firing its coach or GM, Boston traded its franchise player.
