Should Tim Thomas had shown up to White House as only U.S.-born member of Stanley Cup Boston Bruins?

The critics have spoken. And Tim Thomas is even trending on Twitter. An outpour of support — and backlash — towards one of the most likable NHL goalie has quipped one question: Why? Why did Tim Thomas decline an invitation to the White House? Well, because he holds strong conservative political views. And, apparently, the Tea Party applauds this lid: The 'Don...

Note to Tim Thomas Critics: Give It A Rest

(H/T to our buds at Days of Y'orr for some utterly hilarious Photoshops, as always. Check them out if you love the Bruins, or better yet, if you hate them.) Over the last couple of days, no athlete has taken more internet heat than Tim Thomas, goaltender for the Boston Bruins, after he opted to skip the Stanley Cup champions' visit to the White House to meet President Obama...

Thomas Says "Nyet" To White House Visit

It is a well known fact that hockey goalies are a breed apart.  Many of them have odd habits and generally speaking are not like the skaters on their teams.  After all, if you spent your career, your life's work, willingly watching players launch pucks from the point at you at 90+ MPH, you gotta be a different kind of person. Proving this point, Boston Bruins Goalie, two time...

Why the Boston Bruins should shoulder blame for Tim Thomas White House mess

"Team guys don't opt out of team meetings or celebrations. Tyler Seguin goofed up earlier this season, missed a team breakfast and X-and-O session in Winnipeg, and found himself sitting in the press box that night. The importance of being on time, being present, was made clear to the 19-year-old winger. There's no way for coach Claude Julien or GM Peter Chiarelli to...

Bruins Tim Thomas’ absence from White House reception a political statement

The Boston Bruins were hosted at the White House today at a reception celebrating their 2011 Stanley Cup win with US President Barack Obama — but they were a man short. That’s because Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas was a no-show. Why, you ask? Due to political reasons. Apparently, Thomas is not too fond of Obama’s policies. Thomas explained why he skipped the party at 1600 Pennsylvania...

Obama honors Bruins; Thomas a no-show
