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, Pavelski, Clowe, Havlat and Boyle are all important pieces and contractually, in some cases, hard to move. Likewise for Patrick Marleau, whose name I purposely excluded from the list for sake of further discussion. Marleau’s future is questioned on an annual basis and always in the days after the Sharks are eliminated from the playoffs…. Do you think Tim Thomas has played his last game with the Bruins? And do you see them making a lot of changes this year or not a lot because so many of their players weren’t producing? A: gut instinct tells me yes - Thomas has likely played his last game with the Bruins.  Th...

More hating on Timmy Thomas?
