It looks like Joe Thornton is staying in San Jose, and expected to sign a one-year deal worth at least six million dollars with the Sharks.

While the Sharks head office will surely be pleased once they get the deal officially done, they're still not the ones who will be most excited about the deal. The fans won't be the ones most excited about Thornton being back, and not even Thornton himself will be most pumped about the deal.

Brent Burns is 110% the most excited person in the world about the report Thornton will be back in San Jose.

The bearded brotherhood lives on!
