I could see it. I don't necessarily think it is likely, but I think it is a real possibility. Timonen seems like the kind of player that wants a Cup. He has played for so long and gotten so close. He signed the extension, presumably, for one last shot at the Cup. He isn't going to get it this year in Philly and I'm not sure how likely it is that he has that shot next year either here. If a contender wants him I could see him waiving and playing out his career there. I think the real hurdle is going to be finding a team willing to pay him $6 million next year.
