BOLTON -- David Krejci said prior to Monday's Bruins golf tournament that he hopes Tim Thomas eventually comes back to the Bruins.
The Thomas subject has been a rather touchy one when it comes to the Bruins. He told them after the season he'd be taking the year off, leaving them with a potential salary cap burden. Furthermore, his exit paved the way for Tuukka Rask to get his chance as a starting goaltender.
Bruins players have generally danced around the subject of what might happen if Thomas were to return after next season, but when Krejci brought up the subject Monday at the team's golf tournament in Bolton, the center made it clear that wants Thomas back with the Bruins.
"I was in shock a little bit just like everybody else I guess, but you've got to respect his personal life," Krejci said when asked his reaction to Thomas' decision. "If he wants to take a year off, then he should do what he feels is right for him and his family. I respect that, but I hope he's going to come back because he's, in my opinion, I think he left -- I hope he's going to come back. If not, I think he left too early because he's still one of the best goalies in the league. It would be bad for everybody, for the league, for the fans, for himself and for us if he wouldn't [resume] his career. I haven't talked to him this summer, so I don't really have much to talk about."
