Joe Thornton seemed really positive about the upcomming season in an interview with NHL.com: Inside look at San Jose Sharks Joe Had a lot of positive to say about Evander Kane and reading between the lines it seems like Thornton plans to turn him into a scoring stud: "He's young. He's just getting into his prime now," Thornton said of Kane, 27, who the Sharks acquired in a trade from the Buffalo Sabres on Feb. 26 and signed to a seven-year extension May 24. "I don't think we've seen the best of him yet. I think he's figured out the game now and now he's ready to explode, and hopefully I get a chance to play with him this year because being a passer I think it sets up pretty good for playing with each other. Just a lot of grit and a lot of scoring ability, and his skating is so dynamic." Thornton was also positive about his own production: "My left knee that I hurt two years ago feels great," Thornton said. "Obviously playing the first 40-odd some games last year I felt really, really strong. Now with the right one, I expect to play in all 82 games and contribute a lot. It gave me a break to rest my body and I feel great and hungry again." Joe Thornton has always been a no nonsense kind of guy that tells it like it is. So anybody that's doubted Thornton and thought he would be done, might be in for a rude awakening. Personally I've never seen anything that special in Evander Kane, but it seems like Thornton sees potential in him. So if everything goes according to plan in San Jose, Evander Kane might have to start taking Pictures with Money again. So what do you guys think? Will Joe Thornton bounce back and reach 1500 career points? Can Joe do what others haven't been able to do and turn Kane into a scoring stud?
