Panthers Will Be Patient with Thomas

Tim_Thomas_2013While many are curious to see Tim Thomas play in an NHL contest for the first time in over 17 months, it sounds as though theyll have to wait.

I wont be judging Tim Thomas on one look at an exhibition game, Panthers head coach Kevin Dineen told the Florida Sun-Sentinel on Wednesday. That certainly wont be a make or break situation.

Because of that Im not going to be in any rush to get him in.

Thomas, 39, joined the team on Monday and has participated in a pair of practices, reporting no setbacks.
