Tim Thomas may not play next season, moves family out of Boston

ESPN Tim Thomas might be playing elsewhere next season, or he might not be playing at all. A source told ESPN.com on Thursday that the 38-year-old Boston Bruins netminder was contemplating taking next season off. Which doesn’t mean he will, but it’s something he’s apparently raised. Thomas has one year left on his contract that pays him $3 million, although his cap hit is $5 million. His no-trade clause lifts July 1. 

Word on the street is Tim Thomas even moved his family out of Boston. So I guess we can look for Tim Thomas to be a Columbus Blue Jacket on July 2nd. Columbus needs a goalie, or at least a short-term goalie to mentor some of their young guys. Pair Thomas with Lucic or Krejci and you should easily be able to get Rick Nash from the Jackets. I would like to thank Tim Thomas for the great play over the years, but it is time to go bud.
