Why not Philly?

Zibanejad 02-07-2013 04:07 PM

Will he stay to see brooklyn?

Greyhounds 02-07-2013 04:07 PM

Is this a trade-ya-so-you-hit-cap-floor, but trade-him-back-to-us-next-year trade?

TP 02-07-2013 04:08 PM

For Nino?

reidy 02-07-2013 04:09 PM

wat .

Rubber Biscuit 02-07-2013 04:10 PM

Oh man I hope not. If true, though, could it be setting the way for another move?

Dr Quincy 02-07-2013 04:10 PM

Isles are over the floor already by $5m, and Thomas is a UFA at the end of the season, so the Isles won't be able to trade him to anyone then.

neelynugs 02-07-2013 04:11 PM

i have heard this is legit, FWIW - maybe they plan on tolling the contract & using him next year

If this is true, that's what I'm thinking. It's not so much for the return on this deal, but perhaps to open some space for a future move.

Shaun 02-07-2013 04:11 PM

Maybe the Isles will toll his contract? If this is true i'm confused.

PatriceBergeronFan 02-07-2013 04:11 PM

I hope not, what is the point? Unless there is a solid forward to trade for, or perhaps Marchand is more injured than we think and they need a top forward?

From whom?

@StapeNewsday

Reports out there are correct: #Isles have acquired G Tim Thomas for a conditional 2nd-rounder in either 2014 or 2015

no clue who the guy is

Yes, but that could change if Isles were looking at other trades.

Just throwing it out there.

Most likely they want to move on with Rask now. I liked his game last night too, but not sure if it isn't a little early to be making that decision.

Gobias Industries 02-07-2013 04:14 PM

Eklund speculates, but I'm betting this is true.

HUGE!

If we get any value I'm pumped, thanks for the memories TT.

The Special K 02-07-2013 04:14 PM

Chiarelli for GM of the Year if he got a 2nd for Thomas

smithformeragent 02-07-2013 04:14 PM

I'd imagine the B's would send TT plus more to the Isles for a bag of pucks. He remains suspended, but the isles don't plan on spending to the cap anyway so they absorb the hit and don't have to pay him. Clears cap space for Boston.

BruinsPortugal 02-07-2013 04:14 PM

2nd round is great...wait, conditional on what?

reidy 02-07-2013 04:15 PM

@KatieStrangESPN

#Isles Can confirm Isles have acquired goaltender Tim Thomas via trade

Whether or not Thomas reports probably.

patty59 02-07-2013 04:15 PM

Making room for Iginla.

Dr Quincy 02-07-2013 04:16 PM

So now that Thomas' decision is no longer affecting the B's cap, can we like him again?

dtam83 02-07-2013 04:17 PM

nice!
