Tim ThomasPosition/status: Goalie, signed through 2012-13 season
2011-12 stats: 2.36 goals-against average, .920 save percentage in 59 games
Dupont's call: Likely returns as No. 1 starter or in split-time role with Tuukka Rask. A much-talked about option is to trade the 38-year-old veteran to get some value for him and make Rask the starter. But Thomas is a bargain for 2012-13 with a $3 million salary cap hit, and the return might not be as high as some may think.
