Tim Thomas Traded

Islanders have acquired goalie Tim Thomas from the Boston Bruins for a conditional pick in 2014 or 2015.

I don't believe the Islanders understand their own direction for their team. They have Nabby along with Glass Rick, as well as a couple decent young goalies in Nilsson and Poulin. Why pick up Thomas?

Ultimate question is does Thomas even play this season now?

I think this was a move to get the Islanders above the cap floor. I have my doubts Thomas will ever put on an Islanders jersey but then you never really know what will happen.

Its totally for cap reason so that the Islanders can reach the cap floor I think they will toll the contract and ifThomas comes back they move him then

This move makes the Bruins players in the Trade market, freeing 5M in cap space, and if they put Savvy back on LTiR they will have 11M in cap space, which is huge.

The B's need some Wing help they will likely look at guys like Iggy, Ryder, Prospal, Sullivan. They need maybe 2 top 9 forwards and maybe another D-man. Likely depth moves rather than a splash for Iggy, but I know the bruins brass really liks Iggy.

I think Ryder would be an awesome fit as he knows the team, the system and can play on the 3rd line with Kelly and Soupy

    Today at 07:05:57 PM
  • 9inches: Scalious, mail.
    Today at 07:10:29 PM
  • 9inches: I love looking at trade blocks and seeing that the majority of the names up there are players that were signed (by someone) to a much too large contract during FA.
    Today at 07:12:39 PM
  • Corey: Not ATL boom
    Today at 07:14:14 PM
  • Dan Wood: I think I have made one bad FA signing and he got dropped by another team
    Today at 07:16:30 PM
  • 9inches: Yeah... not a literal majority, but the ones that continue to show up.
    Today at 07:18:45 PM
  • 9inches: :)
    Today at 07:18:48 PM
  • 9inches: I was saved on Gavin Floyd a couple years ago.
    Today at 07:20:31 PM
  • 9inches: Don't think I ever thought I'd keep him that long, but was a lesson
    Today at 07:20:59 PM
  • Corey: I sign cheap in FA. Gutierrez and Colabello were my big signing last yr.
    Today at 07:21:24 PM
  • Dan Wood: Kubel, Franceour, Floyd...stand out
    Today at 07:21:50 PM
  • Dan Wood: floyd and kubel were signed by MTK
    Today at 07:22:34 PM
  • Dan Wood: and dealt... Shields keeps getting moved
    Today at 07:22:44 PM
  • 9inches: I signed Kubel last year.. and sold him after a decent first half.  But, you mean the contract before, right?
    Today at 07:23:03 PM
  • 9inches: Francoeur really killed.
    Today at 07:23:15 PM
  • Dan Wood: I have a feeling that two SD signings from last year will reach the drop pile
    Today at 07:23:39 PM
  • 9inches: It's funny. Shields was signed at market value... he, of course just didn't keep up that value (not quite).
    Today at 07:23:46 PM
  • Dan Wood: correct - the contract that the Yanks dropped him on
    Today at 07:23:57 PM
  • Dan Wood: 10 or 11 mil a year I think
    Today at 07:24:15 PM
  • 9inches: yeah.
    Today at 07:24:35 PM
  • 9inches: I was also in on Stephen Drew two years ago. Dropped out just in time.
    Today at 07:24:55 PM
  • Dan Wood: willingham blew up in my face
    Today at 07:25:01 PM
  • 9inches: yeah. I was trying to get him from you last year.
    Today at 07:25:34 PM
  • 9inches: I was also after David Murphy in last years FA. Not terrible, but not a value at $6m.
    Today at 07:26:01 PM
  • Dan Wood: Billingsley may blow up in my face
    Today at 07:26:38 PM
  • Dan Wood: Murphy was like the last FA signed
    Today at 07:26:52 PM
  • Scalious: Got'm for 5 M in ML... But nothing tops paying Chris Young 9.6 M per
    Today at 07:28:17 PM
  • 9inches: yeah... i thought i might swipe him at $3m/yr... but him and barney were driven up when we got a couple new GMs
    Today at 07:28:33 PM
  • 9inches: I kinda like the Rays philosophy with their RPs... overpay, but low years. I realize that doesn't work that well with MB rules$
    Today at 07:29:56 PM
  • 9inches: but..
    Today at 07:30:00 PM
  • 9inches: white or black CY?$
    Today at 07:30:18 PM
  • 9inches: though it doesn't matter for your point.
    Today at 07:30:31 PM
  • Scalious: We only have limited farms.. So its easier to take fliers on up and coming RP. While in the real MLB. The better upside RP arms have to be traded for.
    Today at 07:32:02 PM
  • nottathedaddy: Corey, OUDAN is up in BTL and you have the proxy
    Today at 07:32:14 PM
  • Dan Wood: C B Young got paid last season
    Today at 07:32:55 PM
  • 9inches: no. no. I meant in general... i'm ok with overpaying, if its a one year deal... i hate overpayment for 4 and 5 year deals (if you are planning to keep the guy).$
    Today at 07:33:36 PM
  • Scalious: Oh. Yes. I agree. I like higher AAV short term deals
    Today at 07:34:14 PM
  • Scalious: Keeps future cap flexablity
    Today at 07:34:28 PM
  • Corey: 9 picks in BTL today. Thats more like it
    Today at 07:36:01 PM
  • 9inches: and the risk down. the albatross hang around for long
    Today at 07:39:25 PM
  • 9inches: DW, sent you something to look at.
