? Don't you know you don't speak for everyone? We? No no no no no no! Not we! He doesn't have to explain himself. On Facebook, people have chosen to follow his thoughts. He, just like everyone else on Facebook, has the option to post thoughts and ideas. He did. It's not called "Question-and-answer-FB.com". He didn't call a press conference and then walk away. He used a social networking tool to get his thoughts out.

First, I am not using "we", we are using "we."
Thomas is a public figure. He is a sports figure. He has renegged on his contract. He has made political statements via an outlet available to the public.
People are curious about his statements and actions and are asking questions.
I understand why. People are curious by nature. They want to know about their public figures.
Most people, but not you. You could give a rats ash. And that's fine. But is sure seems to me that you want everyone else to think the same way.
And all of this has as much to do with hockey as much as what Red, Kels, Dez and you do in your bedrooms, although in at least one case I'm sure it's sleeping and nothing else.
The hockey issues are;
are these statements (right, wrong, indifferent, controversial or whatever) hurting any potential trade value or his value in the NHL?
Is he tryng to hurt his value? (intentionally or not) His mental state IS relevant to that value.
Or what the heck can management do with him?
I've tried to bring this back to hockey several times already and it seems that people are hell bent on taking it in other directions.
