Some of us put life ahead of careers and self. Sorry you're not one of those people, but don't judge others for doing so.
Nice one Audrey (as usual).

I wish only the best for Tim Thomas.

I would hate to see him in net for another team.

No Timmy Thomas in 2011 = No Stanley Cup for Boston.

And if that's the case, why is the cap hit incurred next year even if he doesn't play? Why wouldn't the hit be deferred as well?

Does the CBA cover this type of situation?

Thomas is on an over age 35 contract. The cap hit applies if he doesn't play, even if he retires.

This is definitly a bad move against the team and the organizaton unless there is a serious matter. I think Peter wouldnt even have used the word disapointed if he knew of a serious matter. He is defintly done here ---this is the last and worst straw by a mile. It doesnt matter if he changes his mind tomorrow -- get used to rask and khudobin because those are our boys now . If thomas didnt want to play next year he shouldnt have signed for it. As far as the olympics go good luck beating out both Quick and miller to take the starting job after sitting out a year. Im sure he plans on playing this time not watching. Great great goalie thanks for the cup but rask is a better team guy hopefully he can turn out great.

We all know that. The big question is, what if he takes the year, gets suspended, the Bruins have his cap hit and he doesn't play, but then he plays the following year? Do the Bruins have to pay him but the cap hit is $0? The Bruins shouldn't have to have an extra year of his cap hit because he wants a year off.
