39-year-old Tim Thomas sat out last season, but wants to play again in the NHL and could have his chance. The two-time Vezina Trophy winner agreed to a tryout deal with the Florida Panthers on Monday.
After a practice with the team on Tuesday he met with the media answering questions about why he walked from the final year of his four-year, $20 million pact with the Bruins.
Did he have any regrets about leaving Boston? What did he do with all the time off? Did the reaction to him stepping away from the game bother him at all?
He was also asked about why he didn’t attend the White House visit with his team.
