Thomas might be on the move

As the Bruins focus on building their roster for the 2010-11 season, veteran goalie Tim Thomas may not be part of their plans, reports the Boston Globe.

Thomas lost his No.1 job to Tuukka Rask and was the subject of many trade rumors for a good portion of the season.

Thomas will enter the second season of his four-year, $20 million contract, which includes a no-trade clause, next season, making him a very difficult asset to move.

"After the kind of drought that Boston's had and the way this year's playoffs ended up, it would be poetic justice if the Bruins could get over that hump and really accomplished the ultimate goal of winning a Cup," Thomas told the Globe. "A certain part of me, for sure, would like to be here for that. It's part of the whole thinking process that has to go into it. That's nowhere near complete."

With the likes of Marty Turco, Chris Mason, Evgeni Nabokov and Dan Ellis expected to be available on the free agent market, the Bruins might have to eat Thomas' contract as he backs-up Rask.

"They know that no matter where I'm at or what's going on, I'm going to be competing, for sure," Thomas said.
