Thornton ready to share advice with Bruins when Cup defense starts

“It’s tough to talk about because I don’t get talked to about that stuff. If it happened to be me, the recognition or even the consideration for that is an honor in itself,” he said. “I haven’t had one in the NHL ever, so it doesn’t stop you from doing your job though, you know. Would I like to have it? I guess everybody would. It’s an honor. Do I need it? No, probably not. Whatever the decision is will be best for the team. There’s a lot of leaders on our team.”

When the Bruins start their Cup defense, Thornton’s leadership will be even more important than before. Letter or none, he’ll be there to guide his teammates through what might be the toughest season of their lives.
