Bruins goalie Tim Thomas published two posts on his Facebook wall Saturday night , both linking to predicted world economic downturns. The first, which was re-posted after initially being removed, led into the link by saying, "See why hockey's just not that important right now?"
The first post, which was originally put up at 7:59 p.m., deleted and then re-posted at approximately 30 minutes later, linked to an article in 'The Blaze,' entitled, "Former Hedge Funder’s Fearful Forecast: We're Looking at 'The Biggest Economic Shock the World Has Ever Seen' & There's Nothing We Can Do to Stop It." (To see the article, click here.) 
Thomas' second post, which didn't have any of his own commentary, was a link to the London Daily Mail, with the headline, "'Beware a rerun of the Great Panic of 2008': Head of World Bank warns Europe is heading for 'danger zone' as world markets suffer bleakest day of the year so far." (To see the article, click here.) 
Friday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli explained in conference call that Thomas had insinuated to him that the goalie would be sitting out the 2012-13 season. To read Chiarelli's comments on the matter, click here.
