Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun 1m
Expect an announcement shortly that Tim Thomas will be exploring his playing opportunities to come back to the NHL...

Will be interesting to hear.

And earlier this year Thomas said he would like to play for Philly.

His contract is up so I don't see how they can.

He made an announcement that he is going to make an announcement that he is going to look for a job in the NHL?

**** off Thomas. Go away - or go to the West. Don't go to Philly.

Thanks, the Sens.

Rumors about him being intrigued by us was circulating through the year. We need a goalie and Homer likes Thomas.

I say we sign him, and I say that with fairly high confidence.

Columbus reached out to him. Granted we hadn't signed Bob at the time but you never know.

Isles traded a conditional second rounder for his phantom cap hit, if they tolled him they would have to give up their second rounder. Isles don't want to do that.

Well, they can toll and trade him.. they wouldn't give up the second rounder that requires him to report to the Islanders and would certainly get something of substance from a team like Philly.

2nd rounder is also not a terrible trade for a team that desperately needs a goalie..

Don't do it Holmgren! You just got rid of one kook. The guy didn't even play last year and is old.

Seriously.

This smells like epic-goalie-meltdown-on-Broad-Street.

I'd be fine with him in Philadelphia for a year, but I'd like to see him in training camp first. It's too risky to rely upon a 39-y/o goalie who has spent the last season sitting on his thumb. Hopefully he's been keeping in shape and playing regularly.

Bill Zito ‏@acmeworldsports 8m
Tim Thomas has asked me to explore possible options for next season. We'll have no further comment at this time. Thanks.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun 2m
That previous re-tweet was the statement on Tim Thomas from his agent Bill Zito (@acmeworldsports)

https://twitter.com/Real_ESPNLeBrun/...03510658056193

Well, that was a short bit of interest from me in Thomas.
