"Do you think what Thomas did was right?"

If you're a player on the Bruins how do you possibly answer that while maintaining neutrality?

Thomas can act however he wants as an individual, it's his right as an American citizen, but as Einstien correctly pointed out, for every action, there is an equal or greater reaction. We shall see what that reaction is. But according to several sources Top to Bottom from ownership to teammates, they're not all too happy with Thomas at the moment because it overshadowed what should have been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the Bruins as a whole team
Einstein also pointed out the cowardace/grave implications of not standing up for your beliefs. Honestly hockey isn't as important as this, and if this bothers his teammates (as in they think less of him) they weren't exactly his friends.
