Tim Thomas To Sign 1-Year Deal With Panthers

Tim Thomas_2013TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports Tim Thomas will sign a one-year deal with the Florida Panthers once the team’s new owners take control. He says the contract will pay between $3-$4 million for the season and helps make their goaltending situation all the more interesting.

If Viola’s group takes over today, there’s a chance Thomas could be signed right away and play in the Panthers’ preseason game tonight against Tampa Bay. At the latest, a deal should be done tomorrow.
