    Who's this clown reporter?

    I can't believe a hometown reporter would try to create a distraction with such a dumb question. I don't know who it was but I sincerely hope he gets banned from the locker room.

    What a moron!

    I don't know Ron. While it's clearly Busch league and not something a more experienced reporter would ask, Thomas has to know the question was going to come from someone. I suppose it's legitimate to flat-out say that Caps fans will be on him for it, so what's his strategy for blocking out the distraction. A simply re-phrase would have been ok with me.

    Yes, I agree. However, I would have expected it from a Washington reporter. Not a hometown one. That's my problem with this. Totally unprofessional.

    That would be Donut-bag Haggs.

    Dumb, but did anyone not see this coming?  I mean, I kind of expected this foolishness as soon as I saw they were playing Washington.  I like the way Thomas is handling it, now.

    Haggs has was on CSNNE tonight practically bragging about it.  He has an agenda against Thomas though he will say he doesn't.  He gave him a D on his own version of a season ending report card saying Thomas was a huge distraction. 

    While he did stir up a bit of a pot I don't think any of it caused this team to tumble down as it did.  Why? Because Tuukka was playing with the same amount of non-success before he went down with the groin strain.  Also their little swoon started prior to that whole white house thing. 

    But Haggs insists that its all on Thomas.  Nothing about the injuries, suspensions, Chara leading the league in turnovers at some point, our defense not being able to cover or exit their own zone or our forwards taking 20 - 40 minute breaks during games.  Nope all Thomas.  Well him and Corvo, he got an F-

    As do I.  Some are saying he should have just said "no".  But that would open the "ha! you said you wouldn't talk about it" can of worms.  So Thomas did as he said he would and left.  He's not a fan of interviews anyway and probably enjoyed being able to walk out.

    Thanks.  He should leave those questions for a non-hockey reporter covering this series.
    Now he can go on with Felger and chat this up all of tomorrow.
    Since the episode, Haggerty , KPD and Fluto have not stopped harping on the topic and if it wasn't that it was that Thomas was too tired. I've stopped following them on Twitter.

    I just tweeted that I'm not following Haggs anymore and he replied that I'll be missed (of course sarcasm) LMAO.

    Haggs is extremely annoying. He thinks he knows everything. If you watch the interview it's obvious Thomas can't stand the fat little guy.

    Bad move by Haggs, it may derail his career.  Asking questions just to annoy the person you're interviewing can be effective if you do it in a roundabout way.  His only goal was to annoy TT.  It was dumb.

    He's a typical hack who tries to be the news rather than cover it.  I'm sure he's monitoring twitter and getting a chubby that his antics got him mentioned in a dozen tweets tonight.  Pretty sad that this town doesn't have a half decent hockey reporter.

    My favorite is Kirk Luedeke. Bish is okay also. All the others tweet/report the same thing , sometimes it looks like they've copied each other word for word.

    Unprofessional from Haggs, but I don't think TT came off too well either.  He should have just said, "I'll answer any questions about hockey", and kept responding to legitimate questions, of which I'm sure there were more coming from the other reporters. 

    As it was, they both could have handled it better.

    While I want to agree with you I don't think it was even an option for him to really address it.  He said months ago that he would cut any session short if it was brought up.

    i liked tim's response. He probably expected the question , and, as stated days ago, said he would just stop any interview. So, he did it. Why are you so suprised at the local guys/gals who are paid to create publishable babble. Decent reporting is very limited in Boston, while in-game broadcasts are among the best with Jack and Brick. Remy & co. are also good. Bring back Kathryn

    I thought TT did exactly what he should have.  It doesn't look good for players to come off chippy, or flippant, and he didn't.  He was actually quite warm about it, and walked away smiling.  Exactly how he should have.
    Moving forward, the reporters now know, they'll lose the interview if they bring this crap up.  Obviously TT will be a big part of the Bruins playoff, and these hacks know they need access to TT for good bytes and stories.   There are dozens of reporters huddled around these guys, and one of their own chasing off the golden goose, won't garner much respect from their peers.
