Is this a trade-ya-so-you-hit-cap-floor, but trade-him-back-to-us-next-year trade?

Oh man I hope not. If true, though, could it be setting the way for another move?

Isles are over the floor already by $5m, and Thomas is a UFA at the end of the season, so the Isles won't be able to trade him to anyone then.

If this is true, that's what I'm thinking. It's not so much for the return on this deal, but perhaps to open some space for a future move.

I hope not, what is the point? Unless there is a solid forward to trade for, or perhaps Marchand is more injured than we think and they need a top forward?

Reports out there are correct: #Isles have acquired G Tim Thomas for a conditional 2nd-rounder in either 2014 or 2015

no clue who the guy is

Yes, but that could change if Isles were looking at other trades.

Just throwing it out there.

Most likely they want to move on with Rask now. I liked his game last night too, but not sure if it isn't a little early to be making that decision.

Eklund speculates, but I'm betting this is true.

HUGE!

If we get any value I'm pumped, thanks for the memories TT.

Chiarelli for GM of the Year if he got a 2nd for Thomas

I'd imagine the B's would send TT plus more to the Isles for a bag of pucks. He remains suspended, but the isles don't plan on spending to the cap anyway so they absorb the hit and don't have to pay him. Clears cap space for Boston.

So now that Thomas' decision is no longer affecting the B's cap, can we like him again?
