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 01:25:37 AM
  • Brent: Finding players that were actually available was a real pain.  I did win $ so I'm not complaining about it as I had Seattle.  I wish I had started form the beginning in the draft as I would've drafted differently than the person I took over for.
    Today at 01:26:35 AM
  • Jpsprague10: At the moment, I'd still consider Oakland the favorite. I'm far from done though. With such a young talented core, i have all sorts of options moving forward.
    Today at 01:27:49 AM
  • Scalious: Well. From my understanding. The Google spread sheet was fairly new
    Today at 01:28:10 AM
  • Scalious: For me. Part of the fun was finding all those players
    Today at 01:28:37 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, with the amount of leagues I'm in, work and going to school it was just too much.
    Today at 01:29:41 AM
  • Scalious: Oh Yeah. OAK is still top dog. Goes w/o saying
    Today at 01:29:52 AM
  • Jpsprague10: Baez, Bryant, Alcantara, Betts, Singleton, deGrom, C. Martinez, Stephenson, Susac and others will change the complexion of my roster pretty quick. Next wave jsn't toooo bad either
    Today at 01:32:10 AM
  • Scalious: True. I'm only in 4 leagues..and I don't plan on expanding. I prefer to stay dedicated to a few then spread myself thin.
    Today at 01:32:19 AM
  • Scalious: Ya know, for as hot as Mookie has been this year. I still feel he is underatted...
    Today at 01:34:13 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I am in too many.  I cut down awhile back, but now I expanded again.

  • Jpsprague10: I don't think i'd join another baseball league. I've tossed around some ideas about starting one though.

  • Jpsprague10: He has had a rough start, i think most of that was from.pressing on defense though. Kid can flat out hit.
    Today at 01:37:20 AM
  • Jpsprague10: He looked pretty awful at times out there in the outfield. Have to believe it's been a major focus.
