Would Tim Thomas Play For The Islanders?

from Steve Silverman of CBS New York,

The Islanders knew that Thomas wasn’t going to play in 2013, and if they though he would play in 2013-14, they could have tolled his contract.

They didn’t do that. If they had, Thomas probably would have had no inclination to play again. But he told his agent that he is interested in “pursuing” his career once again. He would be a solid fit for a number of teams – including the hated Flyers — but he would be perfect for the Islanders....

Few people believe in the Islanders. They got hot in the second half of the season and they made the playoffs. Can they sustain their run next year and go further than the first round?

The answer is a resounding NO if they don’t have a goaltender.

In addition to tossing DiPietro aside, starting goalie Evgeni Nabokov is a free agent. Let him go.

The Islanders need a real goalie. They need to sign Thomas and help him lead an Islanders’ resurgence.
