GIF via massholesports.com     I'm sure by this point, most of you have already heard about Tim Thomas' incident with Carl Soderberg on Tuesday. If you aren't familiar with it, check out our previous article. The incident, which resulted in a neck-full of wood for Soderberg, has been deemed "acceptable" by the NHL.     CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty reported that Thomas will not have a meeting with the league. As a result, it's extremely unlikely that he'll see any sort of punishment for the play, which was.... unnecessary, to say the least.     It's kind of entertaining to see what the league chooses to crack down on....     Agree? Disagree? Let us know what you think below, or on Twitter, @CamHasbrouck and @BruinsLife

Those athletes usually say the right things about how they play for the greatest fans in the world or some other throwaway line like that, but it’s often just lip service.

Opinion: Thomas made a choice as an individual, now he must pay the price

Tim Thomas takes exception to many things, so it's not surprising that the often crotchety, outspoken and politically motivated former Bruin would take exception to someone being in his crease......and taking exception to a team with a four goal lead trying to pot one more, as long as they'd scored six against him already.  So when Bruins' winger Carl Soderberg...
