07:25 AM ET 09.19 | Tim Thomas is back, and the Bruins don't seem to mind one bit it's not with them. [Said coach Claude Julien:] "It's an opportunity for him and I'm happy for him. For all the stuff that's been written about him, at the end of the day he was still a big contributor to us winning the Stanley Cup (in 2011). You don't forget those things." ... [Tuukka Rask] and Thomas have stayed loosely in touch since the latter stepped away from the game, although the topic of a comeback never came up. But Rask has frequently predicted that Thomas might be able to come back. "I wasn't ever saying, 'He's done,' or, 'He isn't done.' I always thought he'd be one of those guys who could come back if he wants to," Rask said. ... "Timmy is Timmy. He's capable of doing many things that people don't expect."

FN used a picture appropriate for Thomas' signing with Florida: no playoff beard.

I always try to show as "little" as possible. ;-)

Both Rask and Claude look classy with those comments. Being with Florida is harsh enough.

Careful you don't want to rile up the right wing-nut Boston faithful.

Agreed very classy indeed...hope Thomas does well this year.....I may be going out on a limb here but IMO he's capable of putting up top 10 #'s this year...in the GAA and save percentage departments....Wins ?? Not so much...either way i'll be keeping a close eye on him.

You and the NSA. :-)

It'll make him feel safe. He'll probably give 'em an autograph session. What spy doesn't want his binoculars signed by "Timmy" ?

You mean Hankela ?? The guy that doesn't like the World Juniors and the Olympics ?? The guy that would rather watch amateurs in the Oly's ?? IE: the guys not good enough to make the Show ?? Yeah man what he says should be very valued.....

I don't think pros belong in the Olympics either. that's never what they were about....till tv money took such a big hold.
