I thought it would be more fun to talk about them being out there for the 2 LA goals last night. There's a reason why a maybe one of these guys will be playing regularly in the NHL next year.

Which makes us look even worse.

Their bottom 6 won the series for them.

Should have just retired...
Yes 'morons' are always the individuals who put their friends & family ahead of their career.

Except I think that's just a cop out for Timmy. He's threatened by the fact Boston wants to go in a different direction and instead of being a professional and getting traded he runs off for a season leaving them to deal with his cap hit.

Disgraceful diving. Karma is biting the Devils in the ass.

my take on this is that boston wants to get rid of thomas because of the white house 'incident' . i trust thomas more than i trust the boston management .

You better be careful about adding "depth" players to the bottom 6. Usually you overpay to sign them and they don't fill the void. See Joel Ward, who was scratched many games this year. It might be better off filling the bottom 6 with young inexpensive guys.

Personally I think sitting out is selfish by Thomas. He knows the ramifications to the Bruins if he sits out and he chooses to sit out anyway. He's got one more year left, just play it out then you could do whatever you want after that.

Watched the first and third periods.

Wife asked me why the team in red is falling down all over the place. L.O.L

Ryan Carter is quickly becoming one of my most hated players in the league. He looks like he should be on Reno911 with that mustache.

You guys are being funny about Ryan Carter. Prust did a very similar thing in the playoffs, falling like he was shot in front of the net.

Callahan has embellished calls a few times.

LA players were diving all over the place in the Phoenix series.

The reality is people because of the officiating: all teams are doing it. Granted, some more than others. But don't kid yourselves. Until the NHL starts enforcing diving calls, expect this stuff to happen.

Yep. Absolutely.

If he wants to put his family first, he should've retired. He left the Bruins out to dry.

Guts and character? This shows the opposite to me.

Selfish move.

he can do that fine but why not just retire? Did he not just screw the Bruins on the cap? 35 plus contract.............he will be a yr older and crappier if he comes back and he will just be traded anyway as Rask can do the job

Absolutely. He could just retire and then "come out of retirement" in a year if he decides he wants to. The guy is a total jackass, IMO.

To the geniuses who think thomas should just "retire" and come back the following year, That would be absolutely pointless as his cap counts against the bruins regardless if he is active, suspended or retired, The bruins are screwed one way or another.

In what way, shape or form is this ANYTHING like drury?

I didn't realize thomas is taking a year off for a chronic knee problem.

from the bruins standpoint (unless the rules change under the new cba) it makes no difference if he retires or takes a year off and they suspend him. either way under the current rules he counts as $5 mil in dead cap space unless they trade him cause its an over 35 contract. bruins gain nothing by him officially retiring.

drop him for sure..........he wont be very good anyways if he even does come back which he likely wont. He will be a UFA since he is on the cap this yr regardless

Boston wont bring him back and they would of traded him this yr which is why he likely is staying home

Drury should have just retired...instead we bought him out and he screwed us for 2 years of cap hits when he retired a month later.

Thomas and Drury are the same in the fact they should have just retired/retire from the get go instead of screwing with their respective teams salaries/cap/team.

Can't trade him now, though.
