Tim Thomas to sign deal with Panthers
Tim Thomas and the Florida Panthers are in the process of finalizing a professional tryout agreement that will see the controversial American netminder report to training camp in Sunrise, Florida.
There are multiple reports in the ether on Monday, however, suggesting that the team and the goaltender have all but agreed to a one year contract.
TVA's Renaud Lavoie gets specific about the terms of that deal:
Tim Thomas will try out with Pathers but expect him to sign a contract after. Value should be around $2.0M to $2.5M.— Renaud Lavoie (@LavoieRenaud) September 16, 2013
While The Fourth Period's David Pagnotta passes along similar information:
