Most Boston fans believe Thomas could be had for cheap, as in not Bouwmeester. Giving up Bouwmeester for Thomas would be a fail of epic proportions considering we have a better and younger goalie in Kipper now. However, its an interesting thought. We would get a significant return for Kipper, and Thomas could take the ball for 2 more years until either Ramo or Irving is ready full time.

I'm not totally sold on it, but its something to consider and it does make some sense considering the Weisbrod connection.

@ Glen, we could trade Stempniak but that's a really uncommon move considering we just resigned him to a fairly good value deal. The thing to do IMO would be to treat it almost as if the player has a NTC, and ask him "hey, we got this offer for you and the team really likes you, would you be ok with this"? If they say no, I wouldn't do it. The Flames are already considered not a premier destination for FA's, doing that would only make it that much harder to sign future FA's.

I do like Mueller, hopefully the rumor is true.
