But on the other side all that counts is the logo.Players come,players go......
I just changed my username from Pete Peeters for other reasons and i wanted to stay with a goalie.
And there are reasons why i went with Moog and not with Thomas.
Why moog? His choice to walk out on the oilers rather than take a backup role and fight for his ice time was WAY more ugly than this IMO.

Well, it only took about 12 hours for HF to return to form. It's kind of comforting in a masochistic sort of way.

I believe most of Thomas money was front loaded in the contract and if I am not mistaken the final year had the least amount of money owed in his contract. I don't believe that went unnoticed by the Front Office.

Add that to the fact that players have probably lost about 50 to 60% of this years earnings so that may make it a little easier for him to not play this year.

Regarding Thomas ... I'll always be grateful for his years of service and what he did in Boston. I wish he'd stay and play out his contract (and beyond) but he has every right not to. That said, it must be nice to be in a position to be able to leave 5 Million Dollars on the table.

All the best to Timmy in the future, wherever life takes him. And make no mistake about it ... He will be sorely missed by the Bruins.

I mean, hey, if the Bruins can avoid it with him technically holding out, cool. But my understanding is that the hit is unavoidable.
Correct the hit happens no matter what. However since he is not "retired" the don't pay him real $$.

Well obviously he had way more left in him than a role as a backup.

It's just odd to me. It lacks conclusiveness. If hockey is what's harming his personal life, then at his age, why not officially retire? Why keep dangling out there? I strongly doubt any team will offer a trade for him, so why keep the door open, especially if he doesn't want to play? The retirement process exists for exactly that kind of thing, and can be undone if he ever gets the itch/permission to return.

For the record, I don't hate TT. I'll always have fond memories of '11 and the goofy "Peggi" ads.

If they can't use an amnesty buy-out on him, is a regular buy-out still an option?

I have no clue how that's going to change under this new CBA, so I'm asking this assuming it's still simialr to the last CBA.

Tim bailed out the 2011 Bruins.
Tim bailed out on the 2012 Bruins, it's obvious he did not care.

Give me a reason why they should buy him out.

He didnt care so much that he played in leagues all over the world just for a shot at playing, battled a bad hip and fought even harder to come back and provide this city with something theyve longed for for 40 years.

Then after doing all of that not caring, he went back to his family who he had to sacrifice time with to do that not caring.

It's sickening that people on here put a game over family. Thomas will be able to look back on his life without a single regret. I have the utmost respect for anyone who understands and realizes that family is literally the single most important thing we can have in life. More important than any job or any game.

Thats my last thought on the topic. Ill forever love Tim Thomas for the joy he brought me in a Bruins uniform.

People do realize that by not retiring Thomas is actually helping the Bruins, right?

Tim got interfered with / scored on in game 7, and looked relieved to be done, that is all I am saying.

I love the guy, and wish him nothing but the best, but he was happy to be done with hockey at that time, he had no fight in him.
