interesting "retweet" by mr. bob mckenzie a little bit ago.... 

 

 

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

 

 

 

bill zito is tim thomas' agent.

Isn't he still technically under contract with someone?  Wasn't it the Islanders?

he was for last season. they had the option to suspend him for not showing up and then he'd have to play there for a year if he were to come back, but they didn't do that. they traded for his contract so they could reach the cap floor for last season. 


now he's a UFA

He'll end up in Vancouver so Luongo can sit in the locker room and pout for another 82 games.

I'm no Luongo fan but he's been extremely professional considering how Vancouver has jerked him around. 

 

It would be funny for the Nucks to sign Thomas though, just to continue bungling their goaltender situation.

It's only a matter of time before Luongo snaps and says something crazy....he's a highly paid, competitive person who is being jerked around. The fuse has to be getting short.

Philly don't have a goaltender still do they?  MAF must be nervously waiting for the buyout deadline too...


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

The Flyers are desperate for a solid goaltender. Thomas could be just what they're looking for (although I'm sure he'll retire after this year or next)

Thomas would be a good temporary fix for Philly. They might be his best option too looking at the tendies around the league

When he's playing his best, he's the #1 goalie in the entire league.

As I told someone else, want in one hand and crap in the other.  See which one gets filled first.  I wouldn't want him.  He doesn't have the attitude I want in a goalie, or any player, for that matter.

Apparently, according to media around Boston (Mainly talk radio so no links) the B's as a team, both players and management, were not at all happy with his antics.

If he had stayed on the team I think the White House non visit would have blown over, rather been blown over by his performance.

But the way it played out he left a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths.

 

We shall see if that stops a team like Philly (who routinely throws bad money at goalies) from picking him up.


"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Luongo really has handled this professionally and with a lot of class Gillis on the other hand comes off like a compete idiot. It's really amazing, how this guy can still have a job after that fiasco. Luongo has put up his house for sale and I highly doubt, that he is thrilled right now.

 

Gillis only has himself to blame for this.

 

As for Thomas when he is on his game, he is as dominant as a goaltender can be I also love the fact, that he doesn't give a crap about being mainstream (= political playball) for a bunch of idiots. I think, he he will definately end up in Philly or Edmonton, maybe Buffalo as a mentor for Enrot if they trade Miller.

 

Good luck Timmy
