Joe Thornton sold Curtis Brown on playing in Switzerland

From David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News:

I had a chance the other day to talk with Curtis Brown and he sounded as if he’s ready for the next phase of his hockey career to continue in Switzerland.

“That was key,” Brown said. “I talked to Joe and he said it was unbelievable.”

Brown should get more ice-time overseas and seems genuinely excited about experiencing a new culture.
