Tim Thomas will be with the #FlaPanthers on a try out...is expected to be at Tuesday's workout in Coral Springs. "He's a competitor."— George Richards (@GeorgeRichards) September 16, 2013
*Insert your Tim Thomas/Stand Your Ground Law Jokes*
Rumor has it the contract is aroudn $2 million if he makes the team. The Panthers have five goalies at camp this fall.
#FlaPanthers Brian Campbell on Tim Thomas: "No one works harder. I think he's a great goalie, great person. It's a bonus for us."— George Richards (@GeorgeRichards) September 16, 2013
