as was mentioned it's only $3m*
in salary he'd be giving up next year, but a $5m cap hit for the Bruins.
what are the exemptions for getting a 35+ contract off the books? i remember when the CBA was signed analysts made a big deal about how there were NO exceptions, and teams were locked into having a 35+ contract count, no matter what. so if a guy got hit by truck, adducted by aliens, or whatever it didn't matter and they team was on the hook anyway. but recently it seems like teams have gotten out of them iirc. am i remembering this wrong?
anyway, my point was it'd be pretty hilarious for Thomas, if he's really MAD at the Bruins, to retire and stick them with this $5m cap hit, if he doesn't really care about the money.
