      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.

[Rumour] Thomas to Florida?

21 posts in this topic

Thomas getting an invite to Panther;s camp has gotta be another thing to piss luongo off. It just never seems to end the drama he is subjected to.

Lol smurf relates this to his hatred for luongo. Typical smurf.

Too bad I was hoping he would end up as a flame so we could light him up and destroy his padded stats

Panthers to open camp Thursday, will G Tim Thomas be there?

By Harvey FialkovSun Sentinel

6:45 p.m. EDT, September 10, 2013

The Panthers will open their training camp on Thursday morning at Saveology.com Iceplex and on Tuesday they released their 59-man roster.

The big question is whether or not veteran free-agent goalie Tim Thomas will be in one of the nets at Saveology.com Iceplex Thursday morning at 9 a.m.

The twitter universe was abuzz with reports that the Panthers offered Thomas a PTO (professional tryout), and it certainly makes sense as GM Dale Tallon told us Sunday that he was shopping for a veteran netminder once Scott Clemmensen went down with a knee injury.

I called Thomas’ new agent Markus Lehto and I’m awaiting a call back for confirmation. The Panthers wouldn’t confirm the Thomas invitation, which according to tweets by ESPN.com and TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the 39-year-old, two-time Vezina Trophy winner hasn’t decided which team to accept PTO’s with yet.

It’s possible the Islanders and Canucks are interested, but Thomas, who was MVP in the 2010-11 season when he led the Bruins to a Stanley Cup, still wants to be a starter and not a backup.

http://spectorshocke...tember-11-2013/

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Hopefully we’ll have clarification on the Panthers reported invite to Thomas later today. The only team I could see Thomas having a shot as a starter is with the Calgary Flames, but there’s no indication the Flames are interested in him. Otherwise, if he wants to play, he could be forced to accept a backup role.

Imagine if Thomas took a backup job in Vancouver, as per Bill F_ing Murray's post? Luongo and Thomas?

Not only would they be the clear cut best tandem in the NHL by a country mile but all tires would be filled at all times.

Because signing a 40 year old goalie will really do wonders for the flames going forward, lol. What's stupid is trading Schneider after benching luongo.

Yea, getting a 9th overall pick without sucking for a season really sucks.

We should be more like Calgary and suck year after year while never getting any better.

Oh man... the "Thomas to Florida" thread is on the verge of erupting into a Schneider v. Luongo showdown.

On topic, Thomas makes sense for Florida, not really any for Calgary. If they're going to go with a youth movement, include your goalie prospects in that, too.

Gheez. I always thought Lu should be more miffed with Tallon....than Gillis.

After training in Florida in the off-seasons & having his hopes buttered-up by Panther-players for his possible return ....(Panther-fans would LOVE that story)...then to have Tallon play sic mind games...all of that must have been very frustrating for Lu, to say the least. It serves the Panthers right...to have goalie problems now. An ace goalie desperately wanted to play for 'em....but no-thanks - they'd rather tank. Again.

I suppose their strategy must be to continue with the give-aways of tickets to corporations, families & snowbirds. Then if the team isn't moved, in the mean-time...they will expect to cash-in with those higher draft picks down the road. And - how's that working for the Oilers so far? Maybe - they'll raise prices when the on-ice product actually improves...or when those "younger" fans that they lassoed-in earlier.... grow-up.

After the fall of Wayne Huizenga's Blockbuster empire, a re-cruited billionaire ownership-group gets the team for a bargain (50 million $). The new guys apparently don't mind tax write-offs. Or maybe the NHL's new revenue-sharing scheme makes the losing enterprises more tolerable now? Who is Alan Cohen? He got out by selling to...who? Cliff Viner & friends? More of Jeremy Jacobs' partners in biz or his buds...no doubt. It's only a matter of time, before the new guys start askin' for promised desserts.

With more NHL teams & their star-power dropping-by FLA to sell the game & entertain there this season....I wonder if the Panthers will finally raise their ticket prices? If not, another conspiracy has to be in the works... OR these owners are completely wack!
