[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Joe Thornton : I'm not going to start a thread regarding how idiotic your posts are..You do that yourself everytime you start one..So 1 dive makes a player a diver but one fight doesnt make a player a fighter because of badge of honor??? What if I pull the youtube of Neely carving up Ladoceur with his stick?? Does that make him a dirty player, or is that another boy scout badge because he wasnt traded or left via free agency. You make NO sense...

I don't know why but you remind me so much of RMiller, that is before he went bonkers.
Good points though and I agree with you. NAS doesn't forgive and maybe that's why he hasn't given props to Marchand. Without him maybe the Bruins would have had a harder time advancing.
I was already mad at Joe Thornton when he wasn't the leader I thought he was. It was the year that Koivu outplayed Joe and they both had cracked ribs.
Then I got to thinking that Joe is great as a supporting cast player rather than the type of player that carries a team in the playoffs. With SJ they have enough depth for him to shine.
Wait... didn't the Bruins have that depth in that last playoff he played in ? Anyway nevermind this is whole new debate.
I'm not upset at him because he's not a Bruin anymore. I just don't like his attitude and comments he's made lately. For that I hate him.
Although it's human nature being a hockey fan of a team and wishing an x-player, deep down inside, not winning anywhere else. Maybe some don't want to admit but I will be brave enough to.
I blame more the NHL officiating on "the dive" and "embellishment" for calls.
Did Joe dive ? YES ! will he dive again if tapped ? That is when in my mind he's a diver or not.
IMO he got my get out of jail free card.
