After the NHL Lockout Tim Thomas refused to play for the Boston Bruins because of the amount of money he was earning per year. Per year Tim was making 20 million$. His contract expires in 2014 and the New York Islanders have given him a 5 million $ contract for second round pick or Tim Thomas. First of all Tim Thomas has never played for any other NHL team besides the Bruins. After all these years he only cares about his money. While Tim Thomas was playing for the Boston Bruins he won 1 Stanley Cup. The New York Islanders have won around 7 Stanley Cup Trophies in their time.

As an Islander fan, I have to disagree. First of all, the Bruins are taking a 5 million dollar cap hit, but they can barely afford his salary. For the Bruins to keep that kind of money is preposterous. Instead, the Islanders decided to take him for a conditional draft pick. This pick would only be used if Thomas plays either this year or next year, which looks unlikely. The deal is mutually beneficial, since the Islanders might need the goalie in DiPietro's absence, Tim Thomas wants to get paid, and the Bruins need to create space in their salary cap. Also, the Islanders have won 4 Cups in history, from 1979-1983
