    What if Thomas signs with Islanders ?

    do the Bruins get compensation?  or because they've decied not to toll his contract they receive no compensation ?

    Seems like we'll know soon what, where Thomas will end up.

    That's a great question.

    I have to think PC would protect against them not tolling his contract and then signing him.

    Seems like it's too easy of a loophole to get out of giving up the compensation.

    But who knows?

    I wonder if it's even true, or just a story released by his agent to attempt to put pressure on the one team that's interested in him or to get a team interested in him.

    I hope he signs with Calgary.

    I think the Bruins lost the compensation because the Islanders didnt get Thomas to sign nor tolled his contract last season.

    Re: What if Thomas signs with Islanders ?

    My impression was that as soon as the contract wasn't tolled, the compensation was void.  But you know, I'm not so sure.  In my fuzzy memory, the clause was if Thomas plays a game for the Islanders, the compensation kicked in. PC's quote at the time of the trade was something like "not to get into specifics, but it's if he plays."

    That would make some sense if the goal is to ensure the Isles can't just choose not to toll and then sign the guy anyway - if he plays a game for you, you owe us.

     

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    According to Bob Mackenzie Florida has made a PTO toThomas.

     

    @TSNBobMcKenzie: Not sure of what's on Twitter, or not, on Tim Thomas but FLA is one team that has made UFA G offer of PTO. Waiting to hear today/tomorrow.

    So there is a possibility Thomas is only getting PTO offers. It would be interesting seeing Thomas facing all those shots down in Florida. 

    Why are all threads heading towards Florida? 

    It's like a vaccum lately...

    If though Mass. was too liberal for him, he wouldn't last a week in the Peg.

    Clemmensen is out for at least three weeks with an injury.  That leaves Markstrom as the starter and nite as the backup.

    Bringing in someone who can actually stop pucks would be beneficial.

    I'm pretty excited about this.  I hope he signs here!

    The summer is ending, the glory days are coming.  From October to May, this place is the absolute best.  Hockey games in December in shorts and a t-shirt.  It's so weird and so awesome.

    It is a bit fun to see a Ducks matinee in board shorts n flip flops then go boogie boarding at Newport Beach later. Not a bad thing to get used too. 

    Ahh NAS n Tubby reunited, so nice. You'll have to, of course, come up worth some great signs...

    Wear an Obama mask n hold up "lets print some money some time TIM!" LoL

    Going to a hockey game in sandals and shorts. Sounds weird but I'd be willing to give it a try. Seeeing Christmas tress and lights on a 80 degree day would be a little weird. Do you guys still get that Christmas season feel?
    As for the Thomas thing, wouldnt shock me if he was talking a team, his agent is telling them other teams are interested and wants soemthing done soon so he floats this story out there.
