Agreed. It would make more sense next year, at which point Stalberg + 1st for what would be a rental seems fair enough if Boston knows it's going with Rask.

would be an interesting trade as in terms of value it isnt there but in the cap world it makes sense.

Not many people are going to take on that kind of salary.

Detroit traded Mike Vernon after winning the Stanley Cup and Conn Smythe trophy.

Not suggesting this Thomas to Chicago rumor has any validity, but just saying that any trade is possible in a salary cap world.

This doesn't make sense...Obama is from Chicago.

It'll be hysterical if Boston trades him over politics. The Perry trade is just brutal, but I could see the Ducks incompetent GM making a deal like that.

Even then, I would expect more. That is less than what we paid for Kaberle.

To Nash's credit the Jackets are a major mess...

I'm not denying that at all... I guess I'm just not a Rick Nash fan. It seems like every single year is supposed to be his breakout year, and then every single offseason there's another excuse as to why he didn't put up huge numbers.

You can see he's got loads of talent, but if he's not gonna be scoring at least 40 goals, and at least a PPG, then I just don't see him having much value throughout the league with his cap-hit.

Kaberle may not be comparable in talent to Thomas but he's only 33 to Thomas' 38 (In April). I don't think Thomas is worth all that much in a trade because of his age, for that reason I expect the B's to hang onto him.

While I fully agree, I don't blame him, I think he needs a change though.

What a terrible rumor

Still ,, If Thomas found his way to Hawks somehow I likely wouldn't be too upset as long as none of the core is moved or Leddy

Doesn't matter as much for a rental.

First of all, Dupont is a great writer who has been championing the sport of hockey in a town that was indifferent to it for many years. Many "johnny come lately" fans hate him, but don't realize the guy is a HOF writer with sources, who knows the game.

That said, he DOES often propose trades that HE thinks would be good or that HE thinks will stir the pot. That doesn't mean they have any basis in reality.

The proposed deal for Stalberg makes no sense, unless other assets were coming, but if Stalberg is the best asset it's a no-go.

But, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the B's were looking to deal Thomas. Remember, he didn't start last season as the starter. It wasn't until later in the year that he won the job, and while he was absolutely the best player on the team in the playoffs, Rask is playing better than him this year.

I don't think they SHOULD trade Thomas, but I do think the team would like to commit to Rask. I think it's more likely that a Thomas deal happens at the draft or this summer.

I fixed it for you.

There's certainly no denying that, in the past, he was an incredible writer. Lately, not quite. He's all about "getting views" now.

Um, yeah, 37 year old Tim Thomas is not worth 5 years of 1st round picks.

The difference between Crawford and Thomas for Chicago is not worth Hossa. Perhaps Thomas + Marchand would get the Hawks talking.

I wouldn't be surprised if this goes on through the Summer, some people are just so blinded by thier own beliefs that they think anything else is intolerable.
Wow, did he win a Pulitzer? All kidding aside, there are plenty of idiots on both sides. To stay on subject, I am just nervous some team might actually think this would be a decent idea to overpay for a 370 year old goalie, and make the Bruins that much stronger with a package. Oh, and Seguin is actually the best player on your team.
