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

He's no better than you (in fact, you're far worse) for turning every single conversation into a Luongo nob-slobbing fest.

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.

“Since the beginning of recorded history, which is defined by the invention of writing by the Sumerians around 6,000 years ago, historians have cataloged over 3700 supernatural beings, of which 2870 can be considered deities.

So next time someone tells me they believe in God, I’ll say “Oh which one? Zeus? Hades? Jupiter? Mars? Odin? Thor? Krishna? Vishnu? Ra?…” If they say “Just God. I only believe in the one God,”

I’ll point out that they are nearly as atheistic as me.I don’t believe in 2,870 gods, and they don’t believe in 2,869.”

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.

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

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.

at the expense of trading a young AND proven #1 starter? especially after gillis' talk of bringing in veteran roster players for one of his goalies? keep sippin' the kool aid and haterade

Define proven...

And to get a potential future number 1 center in a deep draft, yea that's about what it costs.

We're in the same position we would have been if we had traded Schneider in the first place.

Flames fans shouldn't tell anyone to drink the kool aid. They've been drinking it for almost a decade now. :lol:

The value of Schneider is better to take than trade Luongo for alot less. Schneider for future 1st/2nd line center>Luongo for 2nd round pick, C+ prospect?

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!
