It still might be to cool trade talk, as Chia saying no would dispel everything. But, ****. If he does, his NHL career is over. No way Rask goes back to #2 after Thomas is ready again. I bet Rask asks for a 1 year deal now. I know he knows his place, but there's no way he spends his life on the bench.

Me too, but not with an extra $5m cap hit attached to them.

I was thinking about this as well if it was to happen, I guess we will know more when Rask and his agent start talking

so instead of hoping to make a decent value hockey deal on JUly 1, now the organization is completely stuck, and may have to pay (give up a significant asset) to have some low payroll club take him.

This team simply can't have him on the books fo r5 million next year with no games

PC said that the B's would "look at" transactions, which could help the team with Thomas' cap hit.^BISH

Peter Chiarelli says if Thomas doesn't play he'd be suspended and still on cap. Would use Savard's hit as cap relief.

So Timmy's salary counting on the cap but the Bruins suspend Thomas and still pay his salary? OOG help !!!

Quite the coincidence that this comes out right as his NMC expires on July 1...

Also read that he moved his family to Colorado during last season because it is a more right wing state..

And this is why you don't hand out 4 year long 35+ contracts Peter.

Makes more sense now that Khudobin has a 1 way contract for next year

Couldn't tell if Chiarelli was being serious when he said Thomas might post his plans on Facebook. #Bruins

You assume at the same time the player respects his contract and finishes it

Maybe not the casual fan, but if the Harvard lawyer and capologist Chiarelli didn't see some trouble brewing with a long-term 35+ contract, then it's time to question his competence.

He now has my ear for whatever he wants to talk about strictly because of who he is and what he does for a living. He can talk about hockey, he can talk about hunting, he can talk about politics, he can talk about his kids, he can talk about ice cream...he can talk about whatever he wants. But he is going to have a larger audience consuming his thoughts and information because of who he is and what he does.

If you had a facebook page for a blog you wrote for, I wouldn't seek it out and subscribe to it because I don't know you. You don't have my ear, because you are not the goalie for the Boston Bruins, or anyone else I'm interested in following or learning more about.

It's not "sports media" in the traditional sense, but yes, it's a form of media in 2012.
i beleive this is where the distinction needs to be made.

its social media.

his own social media. his own account. his own page. you are fully aware of the fact that it is his personal space on the internet to post whatever beleifs he wants and you sought it out.

i do not seek out or subscribe to his fb page because of this. i dont care about his beleifs.

when i want hockey news about him though, i will turn to 'official' sports media outlets. thats the distinction. He has not used sports media outlets to promote his beleifs, and as a fan, i appriciate that. if i want his beliefs, i would seek out his personal fan page. if he were answering every reporter who asked him, to me, thats a hug distinction. i watch a post game interview with him, all i get is hockey. if someone asked him about the WH, he didnt comment.

there really is a huge distinction between the two. and i for one appriciate him not answering those questions in the official sports media world.

Sounds like Timmy has family problems?
Could a trade to the Avalanche help alleviate the problems?
