Tim Thomas Traded

Bye Timmy! (credit:flickr/Slidingsideways)

Well friends the day has come. Today is the day that goaltender Tim Thomas is officially no longer a part of the Bruins organization. It was just announced/ my twitter is currently blowing up with the news.

As of now, Thomas is now a member of the New York Islanders. In exchange for Thomas, the Bruins will get a conditional  2nd round draft pick in either the 2014 or 2015 draft. He will, however, not be playing for the Isles this season as he is on  leave. He did say he wanted to play next season so potentially the Isles could have a good goalie for next year.

Thomas was in the final year of his contract and since he wasn’t playing at the moment, he was basically taking away the B’s chance to sign someone new. Well now that he’s gone, the B’s have $5 million in cap space to play around with as the trade deadline approaches.

On the other hand, the Isles picked up Timmy to make sure they were over the cap floor.

So I guess it’s a win, win for everyone? Well us mostly.

In the end thanks for everything Tim Thomas, good luck whenever hockey and or your three f’s take you!
