Plus he'd have to get paid. I'm not arguing that what he's done is the worst case scenario. It's simply not the best case either. I'd rather have a healthy, active Tim Thomas tending net, or being moved for assets in return, than one sitting on the sidelines tying up cap space.

Look, I feel loyalty to Thomas for what he's done for this organization. The fact is, however, that I was a Bruins fan before Tim, and I'll be one after Tim. My first loyalty is to the team, and my priority is to see the best thing happens for the Bruins, not Tim Thomas. He won't be standing in a soup line any time soon, and good on him for earning it with the work he put in.
