So what happens to his cap? Does it still come off next year?

TSNBobMcKenzie: As of now, subject to usual "could change mind later" qualifiers, TIm Thomas is not interested in ending his self-imposed hockey exile.

That is all.

thats an over 40 contract right, so even in retirement cap hit still counts.

really? that's a little over the top, I think. Even if you disagree with him, Thomas didn't even say anything all that bad. McSorely nearly killed a guy on the ice. Totally ridiculous comparison.

One was a spur of the moment stupid move, the other has been thought about for a long time and is still terrible stupid, arrogant, and ignorant to the fans and team. The level of stupidity for me applies to the amount of thought involved.

I don't think it applies if he is suspended. That will happen when/if he doesn't show.

Is Thomas eligible for the new CBA's "compliance buyout?"

Id need to look into specifics, but I would assume where the owners don't have to pay TT in his absence they wouldn't want buying him out. (if this rule costs the owners)

Oh please.

I don't agree at all with Thomas's political views, but if a professional athlete is at the top of his game and suddenly withdraws from view, something's wrong. And it's not up to me or any other person to stand in judgement of him unless they know what that something is.

I will be forever grateful to Thomas for helping the Bruins win their first Stanley Cup since I was a kid. And I wish him the best, and personal peace, in the future.

As for practical matters, his cap hit comes off the books after this season. There's no need to buy him out.

And one was a terrible act of violence and the other was....what exactly? I mean what did Thomas even do to piss you off so much?

You're probably right. I was thinking of it from a cap space POV, not a "what would J.J. have to shell out?" POV.

I believe the answer is no, as the buyouts can not occur until after this season, and after this season Thomas will be a free agent, unless of course the Bruins decide to roll his contract forward, which they won;t

It is all pretty meaningless, my understanding is the Bruins have plenty of space for this season, even with the Thomas 5 mil on the books, and then next year it simply goes away

God bless him. Walking away from millions to enjoy life with his family. Its fitting that his last moment on ice as a Bruin was cheering up his kids through the glass after the game 7 loss. Best Bruin goaltender I've ever seen and one hell of a role model about how to go hard after what is good in life.

Wonder how many "Bring back Tim" threads are going to pop up this year after a bad game or two from Tuuk, or injury or something...

I love this post ... Sums it up in three sentences... Perfection.

Quick question: Why hasn't he gone through the retirement process if that's the goal?

I will say I'm flabbergasted by the general perception here. Only in sports can not honoring a contract be seen as a good, even noble thing due to his past success.

I don't have any hard feelings towards Timmy. Sure he's kind of a nut, but I can't fault him for putting family first. And that 2011 playoff run was one of the great Bruins experiences of my life, thanks in a large part to his unbelievable play in goal. Best of luck to him.
