I dont even know what Thorton was doing, other then making himself look foolish...
With all the crap the Twins have had to put up with over the past 10 years does he really think that putting his finger in Hanks face is going to throw him off his game?
What a loser.
I always liked Thorton, but he really did make his critics look right on that play. He's supposed to be the Sharks offensive catalyst, yet he's wasting time trying to agitate Henrik in a tie hockey game? Don't the Sharks have someone in their bottom6 who can do that so Joe can, you know, try and win the dam game?
It was out of character for Joe, no doubt. I'm not up in arms about the whole 'disrespect the Sedins' thing because of the way they handle themselves when such bull shit takes place...
My issue in terms of "respect" pertains to the calls made for and against them. The Sedins get mugged on a nightly basis but as soon as one of them put their stick on another play they are in the box. I don't think any other star player in the league gets such poor treatment from the officials and I really don't get it.
For what ever reason they just don't seem to be respected.
