Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, an all-star caliber player may be traded and he only wants to be traded to the Rangers. Okay, so we’ve been down this road once or twice. According to Doug MacLean, Joe Thornton only wants to be traded to the Rangers. Thornton is the proud new owner of a NMC and pretty much can pick his destination. Now that MacLean has put this information out into the world, I would expect one of the usual suspects to confirm or deny. New York is an attractive destination for Thornton, the team is very close to a Cup and he can center his buddy Rick Nash. Earlier in the week, MacLean mentioned that the “Thornton to New York rumors just won’t go away”. He has now doubled down on that scenario.
