The New York Islanders have acquired goalie Tim Thomas from the Boston Bruins in exchange for a second-round pick in either 2014 or 2015.
....so now the islanders have 3 old, worn-out goalies(DiPietro,Nabokov and now Thomas) ?? this trade makes no sense!!
B-R-U-T-A-L, Cap circumvention at its worst, what a shame Tavares plays for this sinkhole of a franchise.
i guess there's a reason why they can barely fill the rink side seats.
seriously, you couldn't have acquired an actual player or goalie that would help the team?
Rather spend money on good players rather than the way the Leafs are doing it. No point using up all your cap space on players that will not help you long term, but in this case it is the Islanders and they tend to do nothing right
Someone did someone a favour.
Great move by Bs obviously after Rasks great showing TT is no longer needed in Boston plus they create a lot of cap space
I think that sums up this trade.
As a Bruin fan glad to have the cap room to fill a hole this year for a guy who quit on the team any ways .
LOL, ........ Billy Smith lives, wooooooooooooooooo!
The second rounder which may be like a late first rounder won't hurt for the quitter either , nice !
I hear NYI is looking to add Patrick Roy and Eddy Belfour too.
Ladies & Gentlemen, ...... for your viewing pleasure, in our center ring, ....... da, da, .. dadada, dadada, .... dada, da, da, ............
They would have actually had to pay an actual player or goalie that would have helped the team...
