    Thats not what I'm saying. They have a lot to prove. They have been hyped up over the years and have done NOTHING! Pardon me to demand a little more success from your franchise before we take them seriously.

    Since when is Thornton tough? Bogo and Simmonds don’t fix all your problems I’m afraid. Is Bogo playing every night, or is he a 7th defenceman? You guys need a Gary Roberts type of guy. Unfortunately, those guys are tough to find.

    Thornton should grow a huge Lanny McDonald moustache so they can try to win the cup for him like the Flames won it for lanny

    He's not soft that's the point, he can handle his own.

    Yes, I know. That’s what that post was saying. It would be great to add those guys in 2013 when they were great. They aren’t now.

    He’s not tough though. I’ve never heard anyone call Joe Thornton tough.

    They don't need to be, they are just expected to be depth

    Thornton wants to win a Cup. Joe you were the reason the Sharks haven't won a Cup. If you had played a complete game and shot the puck more often you might have won.

    Difference being Tamp paid a huge price for physical players in their prime that could skate. Who have the Leafs added that matched that profile? And who is their Hedman in your fantasy scenario where the Leafs remind you of Tampa?

    We see this all the time with Leafs fans. Every year they say it’s their year. They boast about the changes they made in the off season and how they’re ready to go all the way, but they always end up falling short.

    Leafs didn't have to pay a huge price to add toughness just money.

    There is more than 1 way to do it

    A lot of jealousy around the league. Who would have thought that Joe Thornton would create so much animosity.

    I'm not saying it's what he's known for, but I don't know how you can watch that video and say the guy's not tough.
