TT also had a team who could not convert on the PP if you want to get into this....

I have to think us aquiring TT would be similar to when we got Kolzig. We would be burning Cap for a player not going to play for us in exchange for other assets. The question then becomes, what would Boston give us to take him off their hands ? (if Burke would even do that)

^Y2K always has a lot of excuses on why Luongo was so awful in the SCF. The team couldn't score no doubt. But there was no reason at all they should have been getting blown out of the water. That was on Luongo.

Thatis because contrary to what the poster I was replying to, Thomas did not always have a great team in front of him. As a matter of fact, he had a great team 2 years tops.

What team was 95% healthy? I know it wasn't Boston as they had their entire top line injured along with an injury to Chara.

I know the Canucks had a lot of injuries, so I am wondering what you are talking about.

Luongo would be the leafs worst nightmare come to life. Unless he's using this lockout to get some mental help for his fragile mind. Thomas isn't my favorite guy to watch but he flat out doesn't give up until the puck is saved or over the goal line.

I don't believe the Bruins adding an asset to one of the best goalies in the world and sending that goalie to a divisional rival is realistic.

I love Tim Thomas. Certainly the best goaltender for the Bruins in my lifetime and one of the best in Bruins history.

However, historically goaltenders don't have good trade value. Add that to Thomas' age, and I don't think the Bruins will get a lot for him. I do know pre lockout, there were teams interested in his services and honestly, he would serve the Leafs well as a 1-2 year stop gap.

I think the best the Bruins can hope for from any team is a 2nd round pick or a young 20 something prospect. In the Leafs case, D'Amigo, Ashton or Blacker ( who's best friends with Seguin ) would probably be enough.

What? lol. I guess a record breaking performance in the Finals wasn't enough?

No Thomas = no cup for the Bruins. He was the Conn Smythe winner for a reason.

If this year is lost due to the lockout, than we'll just sign him in the offseason for free (no assets needed, just moolah)

That is entirely possible but it is also entirely possible that the new CBA changes some things and the Bruins suspend Thomas and he still owes them a year and they don't have a cap hit while he is suspended. If nothing changes and the CBA still makes it so Thomas' cap hit counts whether he plays or not then I imagine the Bruins just let his contract run out and the Leafs could sign him. I just have a hard time seeing Burke sign Thomas for a bunch of reasons.

i think louongo has a reputation for throwing teammates under the bus when things dont go well... his interviews after games are often... questionable

as for thomas he was super loved by his teammates right up till the wheels fell off after the whole whitehouse thing... maybe the guy is under a lot of stress? i mean he did take the year off too... teammates usually are understanding if a guy acts up due to forces that are really difficult to deal with

i wish we knew... we dont.. but chances are his teammates might.

I'll take Thomas over Loungo any day!! I dont care about political views as long as he plays Hockey!! One or two years of Thomas >>> Loungo and ****ed up contract(not mention is weak for mind state in pressure games) and the cost Van would want , would leafs ,more than bring Lu here

(On the Lu trade **** , leafs don't have a lot of good top forward prospects, so trading away Kradi or Colborne would hurt us alot, as for our defense prospects Rielly, Finn & Gardiner are OFF Limits for Luongo However for Miller i give some of those,, only put Miller in cause van fans say Lu is better

P.S. Buffalo would Never trade Miller not even for LU

While I'm sure it wouldn't take a lot for Boston to move Tim Thomas the one thing which scares me about him is his age.

It should probably scare you more that he has said he is taking the year off and then is an ufa.

this from the team that had Johnny Bower. TT has another 2 very good years in him. I'd love to see him stay in Boston. Disappointed in some of his actions, but a good man and no dogs were kicked.

I agree. I see no reason why Thomas can't be a #1 starter for at least 1 more season and a 50-50 split guy for a season after that. I'm not sure if he wants to play next year, but if I'm a team with a goalie in the pipeline but a year or 2 away I'd definitely sign him as an UFA.

I would rather go with the young guys.

TT isn't coming back. There is no hockey, why go for such a desparation move? Go back to last year and replace the names
Thomas with Turco, and you basically got what you want.

How does this rumored "amnesty buyout" affect the goalie market?

Philly buys out Bryz?

Vancouver buys out Lui?

Boston buys out Thomas?

I think Timmy ends up in Toronto
