Thanks a lot, Joe Thornton.
Thornton and his San Jose Sharks recently played the Rangers, the team Montreal meets on the ice in just a few hours, and Thornton came out and said the Rangers were the softest team he’s played against in the east.
This of course infuriated Rangers’ coach John Tortorella, and it makes me mad too because the Rangers might take a hard look at themselves and decide to prove to everyone that they’re not soft like Thornton said.
So we just might meet a tough Rangers squad tonight. If so, thanks a lot, Thornton. Thanks for nothing.
