Tim Thomas: I'm Taking It Year By Year

Tim Thomas hasn't put too much thought into his future. Thomas, who anchored the Boston Bruins' run to the 2011 Stanley Cup at the age of 37, told that he is unsure of when he will hang up his skates and call it a career.

"You know, I'm going to take it year by year," Thomas told Wednesday. "Just take it year by year. Obviously I'm able to play at a very high level right now. It's just going to be a matter of what I feel like is the best decision for me and my family when that decision time comes." (via WEEI)

Thomas has played for the Bruins for his entire eight-year NHL career, totaling a 177-10 record with 9,664 saves and a career goals against average (GAA) of 2.45. Last season, Thomas was nearly unstoppable, turning away 1,699 of 1,811 shots to record a 1.84 GAA and a 16-5 regular season record. In the playoffs, Thomas had a 16-9 record with 798 saves on 849 shots (.940 save percentage) and a GAA of 1.98.
