Either way, I don't care about the Visnovsky deal. And I realize that my emotional investment into the Thomas situation and any negative feelings I have as a result, are due to MY selfishness - not Tim Thomas'.
It would be, but that isn't the reasoning he gave. He isn't coming back to the NHL because the situation he is in right now is better for his family. That makes it the same scenario.

All signs point to it being just as much to do with getting dealt to the Isles, but just as equally all signs pointed to Thomas being unhappy with Bruins brass when he left as well. We can't guess on one, it would be wrong to guess on the other.

That was my only point. You can't support one and hate on the other... well you can but it makes you hypocritical. Similarly, supporting Thomas and dissing Soderberg also seems a bit disingenuous now. Maybe people will be a bit more sympathetic to his reasoning as well? Radulov also?
