[Rumour] Flames interested in Tim Thomas
Posted 09 July 2012 - 01:59 PM
"If Thomas won't play this year, I bet we'd be able to pry him out of Boston for picks and prospects!"
Way to think outside the box!

Tim Thomas: I dunno... ain't dem Canadians a buncha pinko socialist brown-fellers?
Peter Chiarelli: But this is Calgary...

Thomas must be one of those guys that threatened he would move to Canada if Obamacare passed.
Actually Alec Baldwin promised he'd go if Bush got a 2nd term.. Unfortunately he didn't keep his promise. Now he's beating up reporters and yelling at women like a lunatic.

Watch them trade Iginla for Thomas and some goon.
You forgot to add in the 2013 and 2014 1st's.

Tim Thomas tells them he is still taking the year off!

No I'd like to keep blowing out the Leafs badly. And what if Thomas does somehow end up in CGY and then decides to retire or take another season off?
man if this is true then we have to face him 6 times.I dont think he will play in Calgary i would like to see him in a Leafs Jersey since they need Goaltending.

He ain't even playing next year.
There is a lot of speculation that he simply isn't playing for Boston, and if he were traded, he'd reconsider.

Kipper's NTC has expired. Perhaps the Flames feel they can get a lot more for Kipper than what it would cost to land Thomas (very likely), without losing much performance-wise.
Thomas' Conservatism will fit in fine in Alberta. And if by some miracle he wins a cup with the Flames, he won't be invited to the Whitehouse.
He'd get invited to harpers summer getaway and get to listen to all is genuis ideas. He'd start pitchin a major tent hearing where this country is going and sign a long term deal with the senators to take him to 67 yrs old.

Is that a joke account?
Makes less sense than anything I've seen them do. That says a lot.
Thomas would cost nothing. They could surely get a decent return for Kiprusoff. Thomas is on the last year of his deal, just like Iginla. If their season's going good, they keep them and go to the playoffs. If their season's going bad, they sell BOTH at the deadline, and surely walk away with a sizable return.
It's a Billy Beane-esque move, if they do it. I like it.

Thomas is taking this year off and the entire Flames roster took last year off...

If Thomas is only taking a break due to conflicts with the B's then he might make a good replacement for Kipper who, being a bit younger, might fetch more in a trade. Could be a good precursor to a rebuild. But then we'd have to assume that the Flames management gives a crap about the long term success of their franchise.
Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists somewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
It bugs me when people pull out the gold medal for an example... Luongo only had to outplay Brodeur.

That's just dumb.
Really, Flames fans, you may want to avoid this thread.
But I could see Boston sending a prospect Calgary's way in order to get Thomas' cap hit off the books - and Calgary is, after all, the natural destination... the clearing house of cap hits....
