Why the F is Tim Thomas an Islander
Sounds like it was a win/win deal for both teams involved to me.
WHAT? How is THAT? How do you see the Islanders getting anything out of this at all???
The only team that is winning here are the Bruins. And instead of them paying US to take their worthless caphit for a player who will not play again, we are paying THEM for the pleasure of giving them capspace? What the fuck is GOOD about that? I could see it as bad, or nothing, but not good.
The condition is that he plays, which he won't.
I wish thats the case.
Arthur Staple notes that the move is salary cap related as the Islanders needed to make sure that they are over the cap floor.
But they already ARE over the cap floor. They dont need to be MORE over it.
It could be that they are getting rid of someone who makes enough salary that they would wind up below the cap floor.
There arent that many players who make money on this team.
Did Lubo fail his physical?
Is Rick being sent to Bridgeport?
Are the Isles trading one of their young forwards?
God DAMNIT the Isles dont need a distraction like this when they are playing the Rangers tonight. DAMNIT.
