Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,
Tim Thomas noticeably used the pronoun “they”—not “we”—when discussing his Bruins teammates at multiple points after Boston’s Game 7 loss to the Washington Capitals.
The 38-year-old goaltender, who is clearly intent on being viewed as an individual first and foremost, was good but not spectacular in his team’s 2-1 loss to the Capitals. A tipped puck beat him for the first goal, then Mike Knuble barreled over him in overtime before Joel Ward scored the dagger.
Thomas now enters an offseason filled with the unknown.
He’s entering the final year of his contract, and his no-trade clause expires this offseason. Plus, the Bruins will likely have 25-year-old Tuukka Rask (a restricted free agent) waiting in the wings.
Thomas showed some signs last night that he may be anticipating a trade.
