Bruins need to either decide to make serious run at a Cup or take another year or two to develop a few more players. im getting tired of these half heart efforts to win a Cup.
Giguere had a .900 save % and 3.14 GAA with a 6 mil cap hit prior to getting traded. Granted he was only 32, he has only gotten worse. If Giguere can be traded with stats and a salary like that, I think Thomas can.

Trading Thomas will not make us better right now. I agree not playing doesn't really help Tuukka's development, but he will see time this year. Once Thomas cools down, Rask will play.

I'm guessing they are gonna go with option number two. I can't see them trading away Rask in a deal for PMD. He's too valuable to give up.

Yes, but right now as it stands he's the backup. If rust is such an issue, send him down to Providence. He can develop all he wants down there.

Giguere is a completely different situation, at 32 years old you can expect a bounce back and its a lot easier to take a chance, at 37 or 38 that's a completely different situation.

trading Thomas wont make them immediately better, but it will next season when they can use that money to upgrade more pressing needs. as i've stated i dont think this team as currently constructed has what it takes to win a Cup. a lotta people are putting way too much stock in Thomas, like he's gunna carry them to the SCF ala Hasek.

I thought Giguere's ridiculous contract was traded for Blake's ridiculous contract.
Totally different situation.

"guy like Sutter"? Assuming you mean Ryan Suter, those guys don't really grow on trees. And I highly doubt they are available. If they are, then see what they have, but I can't think of (nor heard any) reasonable offers that is gonna work for both sides. I can't see any team trading for Tuukka on potential alone. And all the reasons the Bruins have for trading Thomas, most other teams will probably have the same concerns. I've ask several times, since obviously you want to move one of them, but I don't think we're getting a key piece for either goalie. I'll ask one more time, what possible offers do you think are available?
