    Everyone has their own political and religious beliefs. At the end of the day, who cares, stop pucks.

    I care, he is getting to be a distraction.

    This whole issue is about health insurance coverage, and he's equating it to Germany in the 30's... sigh.

    Yup. I heard about this.

    More than anything, Thomas really needs to hire some PR help. Whatever opinions he has, it always comes out all convoluted and messy. What the frack is he talking about? What's his point? What does he hope to gain from making such statements?

    If you have to explain yourself (or refuse to explain yourself) after every comment, maybe time to stop making comments. It doesn't benefit your cause to send convoluted messages, and it certainly isn't worth the hassle it causes his employer and teammates.

    I feel bad for Thomas. As much as I personally disagree with his perspective, he does have passion...but can't articulate his opinions in a constructive way. All it will do is drive a wedge between him, his fans and eventually the team. Lord help us if he stops being superhuman in net.

    Any moment now, Red. But I don't blame them....you can't compare a health care decision with the Nazis and then go about your merry little day without some sort of backlash.

    Look at us....normally we cringe at these types of discussions, yet here we are. It just stinks. We can say stop pucks and it's all good, but the fact remains that there's a little less joy in watching him succeed for some....and the feelgood story of the old guy who never gave up is long gone to many of us. It's just...disappointing. And for what purpose?

    How? Is he distracting you or the team. If he's distracting the team please explain how you know this.

    Re: I thought Thomas Was Done Talking???

    I care.  My personal feeling was that the White House thing was petty and selfish (not because of the politics involved, but the gesture itself).  But I agreed to accept Thomas' decision, move past it and support him, based in part on his claim that the decision was a private one and he was not going to call public attention to it.

    Now that appears to have been posturing on his part, and I assume, he is now going to continue to try to be a public political figure and a professional athlete at the same time.

    So be it, but it is now entirely fair for people to judge him on this and criticize him.  It is not a personal private matter -- he has made it public.

    And is there anything more tired and tasteless than comparing every situation to Hitler and the Nazis??  I hate when both parties do this.  Providing birth control is now compared to rounding up Jews to murder them in concentration camps...?  Stupid.

    Stick to stopping pucks Timmy.

    Re: I thought Thomas Was Done Talking???

    totally agree with fletch and asmaha......you cannot compare the president to a nazi.  you don't think this is a distraction?  after all of the press and attention the white house snub got, that definitely distracted the team.  this has the potential to be even worse....is he intentionally trying to tick everybody off and get traded or something???? nothing in the years he's been here and now the 2 incidents in 2 weeks???? the conspiracy theorist in me tells me something may be going here.........

    Isn't that some internet meme?  That any and all debates eventually invoke Nazis?

    If it isn't, it should be.

    Tim, please just go back to stopping pucks, you're starting to make the rest of the goalies in the league look well-adjusted. If you have to speak out, take a page from Roy's book and talk to your goalposts.

    I knew I remembered something like that.  It seems it may apply to offline discussions as well.

    I placed some remarks on FB recently, I figured you guys might like to read them upon request cause I am really, really important.  Most deal with the Bs, cause I no carp about politics, religion, and welfare rights, individual rights, NAZIs, Judaism, Communisim, and various other subjects.  All of my friends like my comments on the Bs but that is it, "that's all folks"!  Looney tunes jingo now playing in the background!
