Do not be surprised if the Bruins send Tim Thomas packing this summer. He was solid enough, but was out-goaltended by a rookie. And he's probably out of favor in the room after tossing his teammates under the bus earlier in the series.  It couldn't have happened to a better guy. Joel Ward sniped the winner after taking the hard road to the NHL -- he spent four full years playing hockey for the University of PEI Panthers in the CIS before signing an AHL contract and then working his way up. The Ken Dryden comps continue for Braden Holtby -- hotshot rookie goalie ousts the favored Bruins ... I'll wait to pass judgement, but I'll enjoy it while he rolls. The absence of Nathan Horton cannot be overstated. He could be one of the most valuable mid-50 point player in the NHL. Is it really possible to have the fifth through eighth seeds emerge from in the East? Wow. If that happens, the Caps would match up against the...

IS Tim Thomas Part Of The Bruins’ Team?

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, Tim Thomas noticeably used the pronoun “they”—not “we”—when discussing his Bruins teammates at multiple points after Boston’s Game 7 loss to the Washington Capitals. The 38-year-old goaltender, who is clearly intent on being viewed as an individual first and foremost, was good but not spectacular in his team’s 2-1 loss to the Capitals...

Trades In San Jose, Moving Thomas?

Darren Dreger of TSN answers some emails… Realistically, what should we expect from Doug Wilson this summer?  Who stays, who goes, and do you think any big name players will be added via trade (e.g., Nash) or free agency (e.g., Parise)? A:  it’s possible Wilson once again attacks his core in an effort to push this team over the hump, but it seems unlikely.  Thornton, Couture...

The Bruins have been showing an electrifying pregame pump up video on the jumbotron, getting all the fans riled up as Boston takes Washington to a Game 7 on Wednesday. With the B's at home, the video will likely be on display again just before the puck drops. This video packs together...

More hating on Timmy Thomas?

First off, if you cover hockey or watched it for more than a minute you will know that goalie are weird ducks. You have to be odd to stand in front of a rubber disk that is going 85-95 miles an hour. Like my buddies kid said once, there is no team in goalie but there is a big friggen "I"... In other words, goalies are basically in their own worlds and the game starts...

The 2011-2012 season has ended for the Boston Bruins after their 2-1 game seven overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.  It’s unfortunate that the run to repeat ended this early, but I am not too surprised that it did.  There is a reason that the last team to repeat...
