Good call, dude! Trying to fix one's mistakes is totally bogus!
Except you shouldn't be applauding him then for leaving his team, teammates and job out on the lurch because he made a mess(if that's the case).

I don't understand how that relates to my post?

We eat the $5 million for a year...it will sting but we are equipped to handle it in my opinion. Timmy delivered us a ****ing Cup, for that I am and will ALWAYS be greatful.

It's officially Tuukka Time!

His parents by all accounts still live here not in CO. The cheated theory is my theory and it's not the first time a pro athlete would have done it. To me it makes the most sense of why he got his family out of the city and wants to spend more time with them to atone for things.
Hmm... there is actual evidence that his family had health issues

versus.

no evidence at all to support your theory.

hmmmm... Let me invite my own theory: Tim Thomas is an alien and he's going back to Glarzon 7.

Give me a break dude. How incredibly disrespectful of you.

You of all people should understand how hard it is when one member of the family is constantly in and out of the picture. Just because they paid vastly more than almost everyone else doesn't make the separations and stresses that go with them any less difficult. You're acting like just because they are athletes, they aren't allowed to be human.


Never said that anywhere in my post, what I said was, in a nutshell, is that is gets old quick when athletes complain about the amount of time they spend away from home. Let me be clear, it is not only the military, that is one example, how much time does a doctor spend away from home, I look at the oil patch workers in Alberta, 14 days in camp 4 home, the list goes on and on. I do not think it is an excuse to cut bait and run on your employer or fans because you chose not to fulfill your contract. He had no problems with it when he held the hammer with the NTC, but now all of a sudden he needs to be with his family. Again, I am hoping it is not an illness in his family but I am also hoping like hell it is not because he just does not want to be traded.

Bruins will then be able to trade him next year if he wants to come back, no? Not like he will be a UFA, unless of course they want out of his deal.

I haven't offered any specific reasons, like you and your ******** "theory."

In fact, I didn't even say its the parents' health. i said, "I wonder if something else happened and it is all too much."

Maybe he did do something wrong, but we don't know, and I am not guessing.

I am WAITING to see. But go ahead with your absurd smear.

Except I'm not.

I'm applauding him for attempting to FIX that mess. And I'm condemning those who refuse to see the value in that.

To change the subject momentarily, letting the contract expire to me is an indication a significant lockout is coming....Chia may well figure it isn't worth the effort to trade Thomas for a fifth rounder but that doesnt sound much like Chia to me.

Except if pigs flew out my behind, then my farts would smell like bacon.

You're basing an awful lot, and forming a lot of wack opinions on your baseless theory that Thomas was unfaithful. Or the just as baseless accusation that he's trying to screw the B's over. The only thing you know for sure is that Thomas approached the organization and let them know that he was considering not playing next year. Anything beyond that is pure speculation, and your kind of speculation is the worst kind.

Thanks for helping us to win a Cup Timmy, but you are wearing on a lot of people. Why not just quit? Cannot believe at his age a year off will be easy to bounce back from. I also think that Chia and Neely are royally pissed at this I am sure. Players too. Rask gets to show what he has and he is a gamer so this could work out very well, except the cap hit.

simple answer: nobody knows.

but the answer doesn't lie in creating baseless and possible slanderous accusations like you are.

Ironically, the Raycroft holdout opened the door for TT's 2nd shot with the B's.

It would still count against the cap because it was a 35+ deal.

Yeah. They are furious I'm sure. They are probably upset that they have those really heavy rings that give them arthritis or carpal tunnel or whatever thanks to Tim Thomas.. that *******.

Opinion, not fact.
Absolute opinion as are 99.9999% of the posts. No one knows what is going on except Timmy. I am not sure Chia even has the real story. I am going off the comments from teammates and front office and in my opinion they arent too bummed that Timmy may be leaving.

Technically yes, but he'd have to clear waivers, and it would only reduce the cap hit by $100,000.
