Thomas is a legend.
His actions are enough out of the ordinary that there is going to be legit criticism of him. Most of it is unfair and offbase considering what he has done for the Bruins.
But him sitting in his bunker when he is under contract will rub folks the wrong way.
I love the guy and don't care at all about his politics or how he left the team.
But I hope the Isles toll his contract next year. I am not rooting for him to get his way and find himself between the pipes for one of the teams of his choice. There are multiple layers to Tim's situation and I don't think he deserves to pick his next team because he didn't want to play the last season of his contract (which would have got the Bruins more assets trading him.)
(So compare him to Favre...I wanted to see him get a shot in Minny to get revenge on the Packers so was glad when the Jets moved him there. TT my feelings are the opposite and I hope he never plays another NHL game if he doesn't report to the Islanders.)
