Apparently according to Eklund;

 

 

 

Tim Thomas has been traded to the NY Islanders. More to come

Why? I thought he wasn't even playing this year.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

This has rumor status right now.  If that changes, PM me and I'll move it back. (e5)


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

If he gets this right, I won't brush off his rumors so easily from now on.

Move is cap-related

 

Isles needed to be over the floor by tomorrow, needed insurance against not being cap compliant the entire season.

To get to the cap floor, Isles acquire Tim Thomas for conditional 2nd rounder in 2014 or 2015.

 

 

Reports out there are correct: #Isles have acquired G Tim Thomas for a conditional 2nd-rounder in either 2014 or 2015.

 

 

Just so people are clear, Tim Thomas still doesn't plan on playing this season. This a cap move by the Isles.

 

 


The question is, would theIslanders want to ``toll'' Thomas' contract for next season? Don't know that... that would be interesting

 

 

 

 

If there's a record for most money spent on goalies who don't play, it must be owned by the Islanders.

Thomas might not want to play ever again now that he's stuck on the Isle.

Technically his contract ends this season but as Lebrun points out, they may try and toll it.  Then things get interesting.  It could be Nabokov all over again.

This team just makes the league look bad. Poor ownership, poor management, everything.

 

So go ahead and toll it, make him play for you. That'll make you look appealing to nobody ever.

Really Isles, really?  Kenny steps up a notch in my book.  Just because he isn't Snow.

He may be forced to play a game so the deal doesn't get rejected for cap circumvention.

works every time

Timmah goes to a team that no one seems to want to go to.  Hope he keeps that opinion to himself if that's the case.

Well he was suspended by the Bruins for not reporting and I think is somewhere in Colorado.  He may not even be aware he was traded.  

 

 

Bill Daly's take on the trade. 

 

 


NHL's view on Thomas trade, from Bill Daly: ``As long as a Player has an active contract that he has the
right to return to absent unusual circumstances, our view is that he remains a "hockey asset" that a Club has a right to trade or acquire.''

You make it sound like he was suspended on bad terms. The GM and coach and everyone knew he was not playing this season, because he had family issues, and they understood that. They had to suspend him as to not have to pay him

Somewhere in Colorado a bearded Tim Thomas wanders the mountain tops looking for the bedraggled corpse of the Norman Rockwell America that he so fondly speaks of.  Little does he know that when he eventually returns to hockey, and he will (they all do), he's heading to Brooklyn NY. 

 

I hope you find what you're looking for soon Timmy, because I have a feeling all the Bohemians, Democrats, Gays, and independent women in Brooklyn are going to be a test of faith that even you will struggle with. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
