According to reports, goalie Tim Thomas could make a comeback to the NHL this season after taking last season off as a sabbatical.
Thomas will be a UFA when free agency opens this Friday. With the Islanders hole at goalie some may think Thomas would make sense for them. However, tonight, Arthur Staple reported that the Islanders will likely not pursue Thomas as a free agent.
While I can understand staying away from him, given his age and how long he has went without playing. Also the attitude he seemed to show while with the Bruins. However, given the Islanders current situation in goal I don't think they should be so quick to dismiss a goalie, especially one with the skills of Thomas.
