Insane.

My buddy who is a Sharks fan is doing backflips over this trade.
I would say the Sharks are arguably the best defense in the league between the trio of Burns, Karlsson and Vlassic. Burns may not be the best defensive guy but he sure adds offense to the blue line.

I'm not real familiar with what Karlsson is about as I have only seen him play a couple of times.

And for the Sharks, Braun and Dillion have been solid in the back.

Nothing is a guarantee to go deep in the playoffs, but between having the services of Thornton back we have a better looking team than last year as of now.
Excuse my ignorance, but is Thornton still relevant at his age/physical condition?
