Panthers Have No Plans To Trade Thomas


To hear GM Dale Tallon explain it, the Florida Panthers have zero plans of moving Tim Thomas.

Thomas, 39, has been a steadying presence for the Panthers this season, going 14-14-3 with a .912 save percentage and 2.65 GAA. But with Florida heading into tonight?s action eight points back of a playoff spot, Thomas ? a pending UFA with a modest ($2.5 million) cap hit ? could be the ideal pickup for a team looking to solidify its backup netminding for the playoffs.

Thomas said he?s ?done some thinking? about the situation ? he has a no-movement clause and essentially controls his own fate ? but said he?s yet to discuss the situation with the team.
