That's certainly an interesting development. Thomas has already previously stated that he doesn't want to play next season, but maybe he'll have a change of heart if Boston trades him. Then again, this could just be an opportunity for Boston to dump his salary on a team that's struggling to reach the cap floor. Thomas' $5 million cap hit will count even if he doesn't play.
Why trade for Yandle with like 7 offensive d-men in Montreal or Hamilton? He doesn't fill a need and would probably cost our 1st pick and maybe more.
“@RealKyper: #SNdraft Despite Thomas waiving his no-trade allowing #Bruins to deal him he still claims it won't changed his mind on taking time off #NHL”
As for Yandle, he's a top end defensman. We may have Diaz, Weber as offensive defensmem but really only PK and Markov come anywhere near close the calibre of Yandle. Even then he's probably better than either of those two overall.
