268 Day TTM Success: Joe Thronton

I thought this one was a goner.  Sent on September 20, 2011 and received on June 14th, 2012.   It was postmarked on June 1st, so I guess it got shuffled to the bottom of Joe's fan mail pile or it got lost under the car seat.  Either way, it's great to see back.  Joe Thornton is the only Art Ross Trophy winner to have been traded mid-season.  An Olympic Gold medalist in 2010, Thornton has yet to reach the Stanley Cup Final.  It may seem like Thornton, who played his 1000th game last season,  has been around forever but he's only turning 33 this summer.  Still, the Sharks window for the Cup could be closing as there regular season points have decreased in each of the past four seasons.
