Well, Jarmo Kekäläinen (Columbus GM) and Tim Thomas share a common history. Tim Thomas played his first professional season in 97-98 with HIFK in Finland. The person responsible for assembling the HIFK team that season? Jarmo Kekäläinen.

I'm not sure if it's realistic for Columbus to sign Tim Thomas but at least Kekäläinen knows Thomas quite well..
