RUMOR: Isles In On Tim Thomas?

According to the Boston Globe, the Islanders and Flyers have shown interest in Tim Thomas.

If you recall, the Islanders acquired Thomas cap hit back in February in a deal with the Bruins then declined to toll his contract making him a free agent.

I think Thomas makes a lot of sense for us.  Nabokov is another year older and Poulin is very uncertain.  Goalies are the most important position so after trying to build on last seasons playoff run having uncertainty in net isn't a good idea.



  1. I think it would be good for the Isles,Thomas and Nabokov would make a good Tandem in net.

  2. i mean i think it certainly makes sense. this can easily be another case of snow just kicking tires and seeing if there is any mutual interest. since that's what good GM's are supposed to do.

  3. Get it done... although both goalies are a very short term solution, Poulin is not ready for 65 games at the NHL level at this point... we need help now.

    1. if thomas proves he can still play, its a huge upgrade! there's no questioning that!
