Mr. Dangle was quite excited, and also offered a comprehensive analysis of the pros and cons of this deal for the Leafs:

JOE THORNTON IS A LEAF!!!

The Great Lakes are not upstream from San Francisco Bay.

League minimum for 1 year is always a win.  If he has a thirty point season great, if he's terrible it's only 700k.

Was he that unloved he couldn't Goto a better team? Maybe the saskatchewan JR team?

Isn't that where he had a chunk of his beard torn off? Maybe he's going there to try to get it back/woven back into the beard.

He has that no-championship make-up stigma but I've always liked him.  I'd hoped he'd win a cup somewhere, but... well this is a marriage made in heaven between the most underachieved franchise in the NHL and the most underachieved NHL player of the past 20+ years.  It would be awesome if they proved me wrong, though.

/Kind of like rooting for the Chicago Cubs.

Thanks for being a fantastic Sharks player. A shame they couldn't get him The Cup though. So close so many times. Farking Sharks and their playoff fails.

/ Going to be rough seeing him and Patrick gone and sure was upsetting seeing Pavelski with Dallas.

My redlit headline from yesterday:

Long time Shark Joe Thornton: I need to win a Stanley Cup. Narrator: But then he signed with the Maple Leafs

He definitely isn't chasing a Cup, so there's that...

I suppose that the two curses could cancel each other out, but probably won't.
