Tim Thomas

He is 37, has 1.5 years remaining @5m/yr.
Also has a NMC and a 35+ contract.

Two Vezinas, a Jennings, a Conn Smythe and a Stanley Cup..... what is his value?

I don't think Bruins fans are/will be overly positive with his stance/view today.

Was wondering how long this would take! lol

Nevertheless, this does seem to be a talking point, the idea that the rest of the Bruins resent Thomas putting himself ahead of the team with his political statement today. McKenzie even brought it up on TSN. With Rask due a raise this summer, maybe it's a possibility.

I'm pretty sure the Bruins aren't managed by idiots, so I doubt this will even be an issue within the organization.

The story will be forgotten in a week. He's not being moved unless the Bruins get blown away with an offer.

So... chances are you aren't going to get many opinions on actual value.

I would say he is at least valued at 2 first round picks maybe even a player like Carlewho obviously isn't stain in Philly and a 1- 2nd end pick
In my opinion as a Bruins fan though

The Bruins will never get a return that is worth his value. You could make a very solid argument that he is the best goaltender in the NHL at this point in time but will likely only be there for another year or two tops. He is the BEST player on the Bruins at this point but not many teams are going to give a whole ton up for 1.5 years of stellar goaltending. There is absoluttely no reason for the Bruins to trade him now or ever. Not a knock on either Tim or Tuukka, but playing behind Chara has to help make the job a little easier.

Off topic, I saw Dave Hodge's comments about Tim's kids names but didnt hear Thomas' response. Can anyone please fill me in?

I highly, highly doubt Bruins fans will be calling for him to be shipped out of town, let alone even the slightest bit upset at what he did. once he gets that next win or next shutout no one will care anymore.

if you are offended by what he did, you take sports too seriously....plain and simple.

His stock went up in my book. And not just cause its in Obama in office. Cause what he said is right... both parties are to blame and both suck.
