When the Boston Bruins visited the White House last year after winning the Stanley Cup, starting goaltender Tim Thomas made headlines by skipping the appearance due to his political beliefs. As it turns out, that was probably the beginning of the end of his time in Boston, and outside of the random Facebook posting we haven't heard much from him over the past months.

Try password. That usually works.
