To reach the cap floor, yes. They don't need to do it now, nor does any other team. Additionally, they gave up a 2nd that only goes to Boston if Thomas plays, which is almost guaranteed won't for the Islanders, so basically the Bruins got nothing for him, which was my point.

Taking him for what though? A 5th? Yeah sure, maybe, though I even doubt that. Really, anyone who takes him would be doing us a favor and eating his salary cap hit, because the only reason DL would trade him is if he can't play anymore in the first place.

We aren't going to get anything of significant value for him.
