Sharks' Joe Thornton: Ready to rock

Thornton (knee) told reporters Friday that "I feel 100 percent and ready to compete."

Jumbo showed incredible resolve by playing through ACL and MCL injuries in the postseason, and between his ability to tough that out and evidently feeling good at the start of training camp, fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much about all that he's had to overcome from a health standpoint. However, Patrick Marleau -- the Sharks' franchise points leader -- is now with the Maple Leafs, so that'll inevitably add pressure on Thornton to give Team Teal its first Stanley Cup. He signed a one-year extension July 1, so this could be his last hurrah in the Bay Area.
