      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

It's alright though, the Bruins have already found a replacement.

This couldn't wait a year?

Thomas has to realize that neither party is going to fix the economic disaster the US has.

Can the Bruins legally put him on LTIR? So he doesn't count on the cap? Or is that just stupid for the bruins because they still have to pay hin?

What a loser.

Id be friggin pissed of I was Chirelli. He'll never play another game for the Bruins imo... will attempt a comeback and use it as a training camp for the Olympic Games in 2 years.... Too bad Quick and Schneider will be the team USA goalies of choice.

Even as someone who cheers for the Bruins (second to the Canucks of course), I have found his attitude off-putting this season. The White House thing was stupid and it was selfish. Rask is good enough to start, so Thomas is done. I think Chiarelli planned to move him in the off season anyway, so way to really screw the team over. If they suspend him, which I believe is the plan, I thought that took his contract off the cap?

Haha ha!

Thomas had a no trade clause which expired July 1; just created his own new No Trade clause. :P

And its fun to be right once in a while...

:P Redneck Tim Thomas would retire before coming to Toronto. He would lose his god given right to pack a shotgun in the back of his Ford pickup truck, and shoot varmint Jamaicans running amok in his neighborhood? :rolleyes:

The replacement IS in that picture, I'll give you that.

I don't get people mentioning that this will increase Luongo's value. The Bruins have Rask ready to take over and will be looking for a steady backup, not bringing in a big name to take over Thomas' spot

Nope.

They will just suspend him- and not pay him.

But because it is a 35+ contract -- counts against the cap -- even if they 'demote' him, suspend him or he 'retires'

Only way to avoid the cap hit is to trade him.

Could it be that hard to get an independent eval that says he's lost his marbles?

Rumour is Tim is clinging to his outdated racist ideology and taking his pads and going home rather than play on a team with a gentleman of colour, who is most likely going to be there next year. Good Riddance Tim, even if it is a rumour, your snub of the president, and right wing ways make it highly likely to be true.

Only solution, trade him to a team struggling to make it to the cap floor (like Colorado, apparently, that is where his family is). That team gets $5mill of salary counted against them without having to shell out a penny because he isn't playing.
