Report: Tim Thomas considering taking 2012-13 off

Tim Thomas is thinking about taking 2012-13 off, according to TSN. Thomas has one season remaining on his four-year, $20 million contract.

It would be a bizarre decision for the 38-year-old Thomas. The goalie is in good health. If the Bruins don’t deal Thomas this summer, he would form the puckstopping tandem with Tuukka Rask that has been the club’s primary position of strength.

The team has not commented on the report.
