Tim Thomas's recent comments ,whether fair or not,have become a distraction to
both himself and the Boston Bruins.The endless questions that both his teammates
and Thomas himself must answer on a daily basis have become a burden that all in
the Bruins organization from Cam Neely on down .
Although the team would never admit it the recent play of the
Boston Bruins would reflect this.The Bruins recent indifferent play could be an
indication of many things mid-season slump ,hitting the wall,etc.cliches all ,but
the recent comments and behavior of Thomas would lead one to believe that this
is having more of an affect on the overall cohesiveness of the Bruins. Both the
play of Thomas and the Bruins must pick up and if not then Thomas must go before
a season with much hope goes down the drain.Let's hope they turn it around on
the road trip much as they did last season when they went 6-0.
