Thornton on choosing the Leafs
“I need to win a Stanley Cup, and I think this is a great team that can do that,” Thornton told reporters on a Zoom call Sunday morning. “It was the hardest hockey decision I’ve ever had to make, but I truly believe that with the roster they have, with the guys they picked up this offseason, this team is ready to win now and I’m ready to win.”
Thornton added that he thought hard about joining the Maple Leafs three years ago, but it didn’t work out, but it feels like the right time now.
