In Response to Re: TSN "That's Hockey" on Thomas
[QUOTE]Just throwing this out there to ask your opinions. I do not mean this as a slight of Thomas and I am not doing this to bash Thomas, but do you think that his not being at the White House may in any way lead the Bruins to trading Thomas either at the trade deadline or in the off season? I know it sounds a little far fetched, but it could happen. I can imagine the Bruins trading Thomas for a veteran backup who makes less money as it gives them cap space. What do you think?

By the sounds of the comments of some here, the only place he CAN be traded to is north of the border...
I am a proud Canadian and not always happy with our goverment(s' parties) but at election time Canadians (in general) tend to assess each of the parties platforms and decide the best for us at that time...I have no problem voting for another party if I believe they will do a better job.
It seems that many US citizens vote according to (in part) their party's platforms but mostly because they have voted that way for years and their parents voted that way and their grand parents...well, you get the idea.
Which brings me back to Tim Thomas.
I respect his right to choose his political beliefs as he sees fit.
Someone asked just what WAS his statement if it couldn't be determined through his FB posting? His actions demonstrated he felt uneasy going. He did not want to voice his opinion to the President...perhaps he felt the President cannot influence the problems he sees happening.
He doesn't owe me, you, Obama, KPD or his team mates exact
reasons why he opted out of the White House visit. As Ward said, everyone on this close knit team knows TT's stance on politics and all he really needs to say is he is not going for personal, politcal reasons.
He offered a brief explanation online, believing it would be enough to sooth the nay sayers. It shoudl be.
I hope this is the last I am going to say on the matter...
Let's get back to hockey and repeating the Stanly Cup victory of last June (when life seemed so much simpler)!
