It's a slow off season!

“@NESN: Joe Thornton No Longer Sharks Captain, San Jose To Enter Training Camp With No Captains http://go.nesn.com/XB6t88
 
Given Joe Thornton's history, I'm not personally surprised. Although I thought they would've made this announcement earlier than late August. Perhaps once San Jose got eliminated.

This is exactly what they need. They need a fight for that leadership role, almost forcing anyone who wants it to rise above and be a leader. Joe wasn't a good leader, he had talent that's why they gave him the C. A captain's role isn't just talent, it's too bring the team together and make them the best possible team you can. I am eager to see this, people will step up and it's going to make SJ a better team.
