In Response to Re: BRING JUMBO JOE HOME:
[QUOTE]If Jumbo Joe was a Bruin at the same contract as Savvy's, I take that in a heart beat.   Joe takes a lot of heat for failures, the way I saw most of San Jose's short comings in the playoffs.  It was Nabby that was horrible! 
Posted by Neely07708[/QUOTE] Compare thornton's points per game in the playoffs to the regular season. This is a player who steps it down on a regular basis come crunch time.
Thornton is a numbers guy, and his playoff numbers suggest he is not a player who can step it up or even stay the same for that matter.
That being said I would also take him back in a heart beat at savy's pay, the problem is he is locked up for 3 more seasons after this one at 7mil per.
