Wasn't there a trade to Chicago 'coming to an agreement' earlier in the season that basically boiled down to reporters all quoting each other?

it is not sports media.
I disagree. Facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc have changed the way celebrities interact with fans. They no longer have to work with reporters to get information out to the general public, they have the platforms readily available to do so themselves. I seek out Tim Thomas's facebook page and subscribe to it because he's the goalie for the Boston Bruins. He now has my ear for whatever he wants to talk about strictly because of who he is and what he does for a living. He can talk about hockey, he can talk about hunting, he can talk about politics, he can talk about his kids, he can talk about ice cream...he can talk about whatever he wants. But he is going to have a larger audience consuming his thoughts and information because of who he is and what he does.

If you had a facebook page for a blog you wrote for, I wouldn't seek it out and subscribe to it because I don't know you. You don't have my ear, because you are not the goalie for the Boston Bruins, or anyone else I'm interested in following or learning more about.

It's not "sports media" in the traditional sense, but yes, it's a form of media in 2012.

I'll believe it when Chia or Timmy says it. I think it might be to cool down trade talk.

I concur with this.

Chia or Timmy will have to actually be quoted for me to really see the validity in it.

Right now it seems like a cool down trade talk trick, which seems foolish all around. Either trade him or don't, don't play tricks on the rest of us.

It still might be to cool trade talk, as Chia saying no would dispel everything. But, ****. If he does, his NHL career is over. No way Rask goes back to #2 after Thomas is ready again. I bet Rask asks for a 1 year deal now. I know he knows his place, but there's no way he spends his life on the bench.

Me too, but not with an extra $5m cap hit attached to them.

I was thinking about this as well if it was to happen, I guess we will know more when Rask and his agent start talking

so instead of hoping to make a decent value hockey deal on JUly 1, now the organization is completely stuck, and may have to pay (give up a significant asset) to have some low payroll club take him.

This team simply can't have him on the books fo r5 million next year with no games

PC said that the B's would "look at" transactions, which could help the team with Thomas' cap hit.^BISH
