These two former Norfolk Admirals Captains are both in the NHL, living the dream. Thornton has been with the Bruins and lifted the Stanley Cup for the second time. Konopka is with the Ottawa Senators. These two players are fan favorites wherever they go and will always be remembered for what they brought to the Norfolk Admirals.
While maybe not the most skilled players, they keep the peace on the ice and bring leadership into the locker room. They recently met early in November and had a chance to discuss old times.
