    one of the greatest playmakers of our generation.

    underappreciated because of the era.. but what an accomplishment when you include a few year of the dead puck era.

    Great achievement and under appreciated as noted above.

    I think he might catch Steve Yzerman for 8th and maybe Oates next year for 7th but I doubt he catches Coffey.

    One of the most under appreciated players ever. Without a doubt in the top 100 players of all time (eat a dick NHL).

    Literally getting to watch a living legend and most just view him as being really good vs being great.

    Easy, easy, 1st ballot Hall of Fame player. To be nearly a PPG player over 1500+ games during a career that spans the Dead Puck era, along with missing 1.5 years of his prime due to lockouts is absolutely nuts. I can't even imagine what his point totals would be if he'd played in the 1980's, say. Even just without the lockout, he'd probably be pushing 1600 points, which would have him in the top-10 all time. On top of being a legend on the ice, he's one of the classiest people in all of hockey off of it too. Been a complete pleasure being able to watch him play since he's been a Shark.

    One of the GOATs for sure...

    I thought he was done earlier this season as he struggled heavily after his 2nd major knee surgery within a calendar year, but the bye week and all star game break did wonders to his health. Could see him play at least another year as a depth center (3rd line +PP).

    It's painful watching Thornton play for the Sharks this year. The Sharks are absolutely burying Thornton this year with 3 minutes less ice time, terrible linemates and a reduced powerplay role. Thornton is just 10th on the Sharks in Points and he looks dead inside playing on that 3rd line trying to get a bottom 6 jobber like Kevin LaBanc to score goals... :(

    May his career be as long as his beard, amen. Feel like he's kinda the last of an era in some ways.

    Wow... Just so wrong.

    Yes, Jumbo is having a reduced ice time and role - because he is 39 years old and coming off two knee surgeries, whilst younger players like Logan Couture and Tomas Hertl are taking on the harder minutes and opposition.

    As for calling Lebanc a bottom 6 jobber is just ridiculous. He has 36 points in 56 games with 27 assists. He is scoring at a faster pace than Jumbo with less TOI.

    The fact that Jumbo is equal 9th in points on the Sharks says more about the depth of the team. It's not a bad thing when the players above him are Burns, Hertl, Couture, Pavelski, Meier, Kane, and Karlsson.

    Depending how far back "this generation" goes,
    I would go as far as to say the greatest playmaker of this generation!

    I don't think Henrik Sedin, Nicklas Backstrom, Martin St Louis or even Crosby can be said to be better playmakers ? Who is up there in playmaking to challenge Thornton?

    Crosby for sure is in the talk. Maybe Getzlaf but a clear step behind. As far as pure playmakers, I think you have to go back to Adam Oates personally. Loved watching both set up crazy goals.

    Mulletman is the undisputed, undefeated champion of hot takes. We may never see another like him.

    Most people have a shred of shame.
