Joe Thornton Playing Extremely Well

Joe Thornton has fit into the San Jose Sharks roster very well since his trade from Boston. Since February first, he is the top scorer in the NHL by a large margin. In that time, Thornton has 27 points. Second highest scorers in that time are his teammate Jonathan Cheechoo and Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings. They have 19 points. Thornton has outscored anyone else in the league since Feb 1st by nearly 50%. Joe Thornton has taken over the NHL scoring lead as well. He has passed Jaromir Jagr who held the NHL scoring lead for most of the season. Jagr would still be my pick for the Hart Trophy, although Thornton is closing fast.
