Oh, but you see Thomas was afraid the B's would ship him to Edmonton and that's why he is taking the year off, at least that's the other theory. If that was case he could tell the B's, I want to be traded, I don't want to go to Edmonton though, can you see if there's someone else who wants me. If the B's say, "No sorry" then he can wait until the trade is done and just fail to report. Same exact situation as now: he gets suspended without pay.

If Thomas WANTS to play in the NHL this year, the worst thing he could have done is what he is doing. Makes no sense to me.
Why would Boston trade Thomas somewhere he doesn't want to go? He won them a Stanley Cup and you think their going to screw him over and send him to Edmonton?
