I have no problem eating crow when necessary, but I still think there's way more to the story than what is included here. And to take this post completely at face value is, IMO, slightly naive.

Glad to see the number one priority for so many in this "community"is being hell bent on being right and proving others wrong.

Does anybody have a list of Bruins that retired under contract?
I'm curious about something else here.

The issue with not having a thread dedicated to this topic is that other threads will be hijacked and derailed if posters have nowhere to voice their opinions.

We'll keep monitoring and cleaning up...

Reading that post and then looking at your avatar is really funny.

Yep TT is clearly lying that he wants to spend time with the family an reconnect with whatever religion he belongs to. He has so much to gain by doing so.

LOL @ Thomas shoehorning advertising into his retirement post. Gotta account for that lost salary somehow, eh TT?

You lose all respect for him because he chooses to be with family instead of playing hockey? You have interesting priorities, friend.

It's fine not to like him or even lose *some* respect but let us not forget what he meant to this team in 2011 especially.. or his entire ride to the NHL. You know, when people would see those youtube videos and they'd comment "wow, his life should be a movie"

But no, he's losing *all* respect from people over this?
Seems silly to me.
