On Tuesday, John Tortorella RIPPED Into Thornton during an event at the MSG training center.
Thornton apologized formally, in the San Jose Mercury News, for his comments yesterday:
"Every couple of years you have to say some sort of bone-headed thing," Thornton said. "Usually I'm pretty good, but I say the wrong word once in awhile. But no harm done. I just used the wrong word."He said he had no comment on what John Tortorella had to say.
