You mustn't have watched many of his games with much attention.
I hate Joe Thornton but he has been by far their best player since Round 1. He seemed to be the only player with an ounce of passion in him in the last game. You wanna point fingers?? Heatley and Marleau. They've been extra pathetic. But Joe Thornton has been much improved in these playoffs.
Seriously guys. You can't base an opinion solely on stats.
Oh, that guy who scored the only goals for San Jose last game? Yeah, you can blame it on him. Passion doesn't win cups, or half of this board would have rings.
