This.
Pathetic move by TT. Lost a lot of respect towards that guy.

Just bush league.
Definition of bush league. I used to be a fan of Haggs a few years ago too. Now, not so much.

I'm sure he cares.

Really don't see how anyone "can lose respect" for someone who puts family first but whatever.

Whatever makes you happy, man.

Well said Wally.

I hope the guys in the locker room know what he's doing and freeze him out or something. I'd love to hear about something like that.

Give me evidence to think otherwise and we'll keep talking. Until then, put a lid on it.

They know. They read him and they read here.

He is the current cancer in that room as far as I'm concerned. Would love to see the Bruins pull his credentials. Short of that, the guys simply give him the silent treatment. Best way to castrate a rat reporter anyway.

I have no issue with that if it happens. I also have no issue with him trying to get his family in the best situation for them. I also have no issue with him wanting to spend time with his ill parents.

As a matter of fact I'd do the same. I believe you would too BJ.

I would just start feeding him BS stories to make him look bad. But I'm a dick that way

Yeah but Wally, you're mistaken. It has nothing to do with family. I know this because I hate Tim Thomas.

Okay, please check out the 'Offseason trade proposals' for my latest one after a lengthy back and forth with the Avalanche fans.

Posting this here because my Morrow one (that Dallas fans and I discussed) was overlooked for a long time because no one looks there!

I take my hat off to you for you must be the single most blessed person in the world. To never have cancer affect your life is an incredible rarity in this day and age.
To not see loved ones ravaged by the disease. Parts surgically removed. Chemicals pumped in so caustic that you wonder what's worse, the treatment or the disease?
To know that every day is precious. More precious than anything else on earth and you race to fulfill that you know you don't have time to fulfill.

I hope you blessed streak continues for a long, long time.

I don't follow Haggs on twitter, but didn't he just keep harping on Thomas for weeks/months after the WH thing? This seems to be in character to me.

I have no clue whats goin on. Perhaps his wife has cancer. Perhaps a kid is an addict. Honestly it's none of our ****ing business.

I do hope it's more than just Tim shafting th bruins.

His political views don't matter his play was great in my book this year. That's not to say I was against trading him. But now his value is 0. He deserves the right if he wants
