Big Joe shows little in playoffs

It's vindication time for former Boston Bruins GM Mike O'Connell regarding his very controversial trade of Joe Thornton.

I suggest O'Connell knew what many of us die-hard Bruin fans suspected all along. And that is, the team was not going to win with Thornton leading them in the playoffs.

You can turn it on all you want in the regular season, but it is the playoffs that count. And Big Joe is always left standing at the playoff pier while the ship simply sails away.
