    He cut it down quite a bit but no word on how short he’s going.

    I guess Nazem Kadri is part of the reason Thornton decided to do this.

    Just in time for the Sharks-Leafs games in November. Looks like Kadri just lost his tactical advantage. :sarcasm:

    Mine is getting good. Maybe that was me on TV or maybe just a doppelganger.

    Word.
    Also, good on the beard cut/trim. Hobo look should never be a thing at a professional level.
    NHL has no deportment standards because it's a backwater, but this is a start.

    Lots of people. Most of them are too old to post on a place like this, though.

    I'm only 32 and hobo beards on players annoy me, but it's only a mild annoyance.

    On a related note, get off my lawn.

    I wouldn't like of every player did it, but I like how there are a few. Gives the league some variance and personality. I respect your take though.

    If Joe Thornton was in the WWE his entrance song would be

    "We been spending most our lives
    Living in an Amish paradise
    I've churned butter once or twice
    Living in an Amish paradise
    It's hard work and sacrifice
    Living in an Amish paradise
    We sell quilts at a discount price
    Living in an Amish paradise"

    Outside of Burns and Thornton I can't think of any other player with a 'hobo' beard. God forbid somebody step outside the cookie cutter mould..
