    This just in...

    James Murphy just tweeted:

    "Reliable source just told me there is still interest in Tim Thomas despite hip surgery/cap hit and to keep an eye on Tampa Bay."

    Here's some wishful thinking: Haven't they been shopping Lecavlier? Too bad he's a center.
     Reaalisticly, I thought I heard around the deadline that they were shopping St. Louis. Veteran top line sniper for Savvy?

    Would that be E-4 or E-17?

    C'mon NAS, you of all people know how to repond to this:

    "Interest in" means nothing; they might not be closing the door, but is any team that needs a goaltender badly enough to have genuine interest in Thomas going to sit on its hands - through the draft and the opening of FA season - to see if he's healthy enough to be the answer?  So "Interest in" means: if we don't make a deal at the draft, and if we don't get a guy we want in Free Agency, and if, as a consequence of other people's moves in Free Agency, we can't make a trickle-down deal, then yeah, let's talk about Tim.

    "Keep an eye on" means little more than that the Tampans are the kind of superficial fit that fuels media speculation. 

    "despite his hip/cap hit" doesn't mean regardless of how his rehab goes and regardless of the money the Bruins take back.

     They are trying to sign St. Louis to extention. Plus, playing with St. Louis would be good selling point for Thomas as they were teammates at U of Vermont back in the day.  I do not think Tampa takes the 5 million off our hands. I could see Ryan Malone coming back this way.

    Not sure with the long contract I'd want that deal.  Malone for Thomas straight up..would you guys do that?

    Malone for TT, I'd do it. Add some goal scoring a boat-load of grit. Plus the sophmore jinx does not apply to goalies anymore, so no worries in net.

    It didn't apply to Steve Mason just last season?

    As would I. Then grab Biron from the Isles for a backup to Rask. Problem solved.

    Re: This just in...

    Malone's contract with the Bolts is wayyyyyyy overpriced...

    A seven year contract for $31.5 Million ?

    What's this guy ever done to deserve that -- other than have the good fortune to have played on a team with Crosby and Malkin ?

    Hopefully, PC doesn't take any more BAD contracts on...

    Biron or Ellis for a back-up....
    Would be nice to clear that cap space, but hard to see anyone really taking Tim on...

    I hope that we hang onto Thomas in the event of a sophomore slump for Rask...

    Picking up another overpriced contract would be just more dumb salary cap management...

    This is one of those situations where my fellow Bruin fans puzzle me...

    Ryan Malone is never going to be a star in the NHL, but his $31.5 Million over 7 year contract pays him like one... 

    Meanwhile, Tim Thomas actually won a Vezina trophy...

    And so many here would apparently jump at the opportunity to pick up an overpaid player for a longer term...

    WHY ?

    I think you're mis-reading "interest" as the kind of "interest" Stanley has in Blake Wheeler.  Even Yzerman's Michigan ties aren't going to be enough to convince him to give up #6 for Thomas.

    Re: Halak deal.  Hilarious if Murphy now tweets: "No more interest in Thomas."  Then we'd know!

    And does that deal mean we can now put to bed all the man-love for David Perron?

    i'm with u bookboy regarding Perron.  However, maybe TT to Tampa is not so far fetched, as they were rumored to have wanted Price.  With Halak gone, you gotta believe Price is staying.

    This post is for the Malone lovers here...

    Ryan Malone's 6 seasons :

    134 G - 127 A - 261 pts. - Minus 31

    Michael Ryder's 6 seasons :

    144 G - 149 A - 293 pts. - +7

    Congrats, you just tried to deal for a player who gets paid much more than Ryder (for longer, as well) seems worse defensively and doesn't score as often...

    Well done !

    Put Malone on the wing with Savy and watch the goals pile up!! Plus as others have said, he is a much more gritty/tough player than the likes of Ryder for about the same $$. You have to give something to get something and the Bs desperately need scoring.

    Yeah, no question about any of that.  It's a total BS rumor with too many non-committal phrases.  Certainly did spark a fire of speculation around here. 

    So stupid.

    Thomas will get interest but might not go because PC will not just dump him and get nothing in return. Murphy is slowly putting himself in that HackswithHaggs or Eklund category of "let me just throw it out there n see if it sticks" Tweets.

    Think of it this way...They got LeCalvier at $8 mil a year...Stamkos will net a min of $6.5 thats...Hedmen will demand a minimum of $4 if he progresses like he should....They can't afford another top 10 pick on the payroll. They need to improve now there weakness...NET and D. I think Thomas for the 6 is logical.
    Posted by rockett7


    Not sure that the reasoning really works, rockett.  For one thing, if they can't afford the pick, they can't afford Timmy.  Evander Kane was the 4th pick last year and his cap hit was $3.1M.  The 5th and 6th picks didn't play in the NHL - very affordable in cap terms.  Stamkos won't start making real money until next year, Hedman for two more years.  St. Louis is probably gone after this year if not sooner.  They have about $20M to sign about 10 guys for this year - plenty of cash to accommodate a top end rook if he makes the team - but they've got a reasonable 2-5 D (no superstar anchor unless Hedman blows up) and some quality forwards - no depth, but a high top end.  Their big problem is waiting for MTL to be desperate enough for a big, French name to take on that $10M/yr salary.
