I doubt a 3rd rounder is enough for someone to take on the Thomas cap hit.
Don't recall the Malakhov situation, but Thomas is only a caphit, no salary. So as long as a team isn't using the capspace, he doesn't really affect them at all. Has negative value for Boston or a team using/considering utilizing that space, but a team like the Isles isn't affected. Not that they would help the Bruins, but I can see a third being enough for some teams. Especially if a team needs to reach the capfloor, then he actually has very very minor value to the team. Also, only one year.
