Chiarelli said he spoke with Tim Thomas about the trade: "He was comfortable with it. He sounded quite at peace with it." #BruinsTalk

Chiarelli is doing a conference call right now.

But, Snow is saying he made the move for roster flexibility, which I'll guess means he's eying another possible move.

Any chance TT feels like playing this season?

I wouldn't bet on it.

Yeah, I know. But I've been proven mistaken every time I doubted him.

Wow we got a second that's awesome. Knowing the Isles it would probably still be a low first in a couple years.

Conditional only if he every plays a game.

At least the cap space is gone, thats good enough for me.

The Boston Bruins only get a draft pick from the Islanders for Tim Thomas if he reports to them or any other team if NYI trade his rights

In all likelihood they're not getting any draft pick, but who cares? The Bruins got cap space, which is pretty valuable.

Yeah true.

This is awesome though we get the extra cap to go for someone at or before the deadline.

Hopefully a forward if we still struggle with scoring.

Well, I guess it was inevitable.

Thanks for helping to win the cup, Timmy.

Man, I just came on here to see if there was any interesting conversations going on tonight. I never woulda thought I'd see a thread on Thomas actually being traded. Speculation? Sure. But the actual act of it occurring? Don't know why, but I thought he'd want to stay with the team.

I dont understand this trade.

Since NYI wont toll his contract at the end of this season it expires? Next season he is a free agent?

Since we tolled his contract his cap wasn't on the books?

What does this trade accomplish?

I don't think I'd want Iginla for just this year. This year and 1 or 2 more? Yes please.

Thomas' $5 million cap hit was on the books for Boston. Boston gets his $5 million off the books and the Islanders get $5 million of cap to push them above the floor creating flexibility to trade away guys this year. The Islanders can choose to toll his contract and keep him next year (unlikely) or let it run out making Thomas a UFA.

We didn't toll anything. He is 5 million cap hit.

We just gained 5 million in space.

NYI get above the cap floor and the Bruins don't have the cap hit.

NYI are cheap so they don't have to pay him, but his $5 mil counts against the cap.

Another shoe to fall?

Why else would PC trade TT? He could have just waited until 1 July if it's just about utilizing TT's cap hit on re-signing HORTON/RASK. TT's not being paid so it's not like he's saving real money with this deal. The Islanders certainly won't see him this year so I highly doubt they initiated the deal.

Guessing either or both RASK and HORTON get re-uped sooner then later or PC's making a subsequent deal in order to help the PP.

His cap space was on the books, Bruins only suspended him.

Its also nice cause it keeps the NYI/Boston connection open and going. If they end up falling off this year, maybe they will be open to trade us Streit since Snow and Chia have a good relationship

I remember there was some talks from a secret insider that Streit was on the table last year and Chia was trying but the price was too high

Maybe I am dreaming, but I'm sure both GM's are thankful for each other and it keeps a nice working relationship open
