Boston gets a big top 6 winger who can score a little which they need. they get rid of the thomas contract for another less than great contract but at least the contract is a winger and not a goalie who won't play for us.
Tampa gets a true #1 goalie, a good skating puck moving defense man and a young prospect who is NHL ready plus a solid second round pick.
My thought on this is two pretty big contracts that are questionable are getting moved. Both players, thomas and malone, are good and contracts are pretty even but i think the Thomas one is a little worse so Boston needs to sweeten the pot to make the trade work.
I know Thomas has a NMC but he might move it to be the #1 goalie in Tampa, they are a very promising team who imo is close to contending. Also he is good friends with Marty from their days in Vermont.
Beyond than a overpayment.
