[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tuukka Rask?? : Yes and at some point Chiarelli has to make a decesion. I don't think Thomas will take a pay cut to stay as a backup either along with the fact Tim is not going to keep playing at this level when he's in his early 40s.
There is a reason PC made a move to keep Khudobin from going to the KHL and he has a one way contract next year. With Seguin, Lucic, Marchand, Thomas's and Rask's contracts all coming up soon something has to give. It's what Thomas is willing accept is what will cause PC problems as I'm willing to bet he doesn't let Rask walk with an offer sheet. Searching for a starting goaltender is allot harder than taking 3 darft picks for not matching an offer sheet. Chairelli can't stop father time and you don't let goalies go like Tuukka go.

Not picking Sandog, but just putting it out there of other supposed Facts:
1) Tim Thomas will never play a game in the NHL
2) Tim Thomas will never get a multi year contract
3) Tim Thomas will never be a #1 goalie
4) Tim Thomas will never be invited to an All-Star game
5) Tim Thomas will NEVER come close to winning a Vezina
6) Tim Thomas will NEVER make the Oylmpic Team
7) The Boston Bruins will NEVER win a Stanley Cup with Thomas as their goalie
8) Tim Thomas WILL NEVER repeat what he did last year
9) Tim Thomas will never be able to keep playing this way when he's in his early 40's?? Maybe not Sandog, but I'd put a bet on that he retires a Boston Bruin. Rask, or Timmy aren't going anywhere.
