No Tim Thomas Trade Talk

from TSN,

Tim Thomas isn’t going anywhere.

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli shot down any trade rumours on Monday, saying there were no plans to move his star goaltender.

“Not trading him,” Chiarelli said in an e-mail to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun. “I have not talked to anyone and I don’t plan to.”...

One rumour that surfaced during the All-Star break had Thomas being sent to Chicago in exchange for forward Viktor Stalberg.

Wow, so the rumours of the reigning Vezina and Conn Smythe winner who is putting up comparable numbers this year being traded for some guy turned out to be BS?

Who f*cking knew?!!?

You hit the nail on the head Garth. 

If Peter Chiarelli were to actually make this move I hope he would get fired before he hangs up the phone.  I say this just out of principle, I’m not even a Bruins fan. 

Everyone’s opinion on the matter has been breathlessly stated, so we can leave that aside.  What remains is that Chiarelli would need to be checked for brain damage if he traded away his best chance at a repeat over something that won’t matter a month from now.

I hear it from reliable sources that the Coyotes, Stars, Lightning, Panthers and Hurricanes have all made offers for Tim Thomas. Tim told me himself that he can’t wait to sign with one of these red state teams when his contract is up. He said living in Taxachusetts with its socialized medicine is killing him.
