Tim Thomas waives no-trade clause

Bruins free to explore deal for goalie earlier than expected

PITTSBURGH - Tim Thomas’s no-movement clause would have expired on July 1, the date the fourth and final season of his $20 million contract officially begins.

But Thomas has waived the clause, freeing the Bruins to explore a trade before his movement protection was set to expire. According to general manager Peter Chiarelli, Thomas waived the clause 7 to 10 days ago. It is yet another indication that Thomas’s career in Boston is over.
