News: The Sharks officially announced Wednesday that Thornton would not be the team captain entering training camp, the Mercury News reports. Impact: Coach Todd McLellan said that he doesn't consider it to be stripping Thornton of anything, since he'll be given the opportunity to earn the "C" back. The team has talked frequently this offseason of passing the torch to the next generation and that's what this appears to be. Thornton was not only rumored to be losing his "C," but was involved in trade rumors as well. However, he has a no-trade clause and doesn't seem interested in leaving San Jose.(RotoWire, )
