OTTAWA -- During today's All-Star Game media availability, Tim Thomas made his most in-depth comments regarding his decision not to attend the White House on Monday.

Thomas stressed he acted as an individual and not as a member of the Bruins.

“I think it should. I think it should,” Thomas said when asked if the controversy should go away. “I think it’s all media-driven right now. It has been from the start. Everything I said then was as an individual. It wasn’t as a representative of the Boston Bruins. All it has to do is with me. It’s separate from hockey. That’s my personal life. Those are my personal views. Those are my personal beliefs. It has nothing to do with hockey. It has nothing to do with this All-Star Game.”
