(I say Tampa just because the are 26th in goals against and 3rd in offense so maybe Thomas could make a big difference )
TT brushed aside a $3m payday, by sitting out this season.

I would be surprised if he's looking for a huge payday at 39 yrs old. I would guess he wants to play for Philly becausehe expects them to bounce back next season and would take $3m.

With the cap dropping $6m, I doubt any team gives a rusty TT $5m-$6m in salary.
