Remember how Tim Thomas told his agent at the beginning of the offseason to look for options for the veteran goalie? Apparently the search has never stopped nor have any discussions.

Now Thomas could make a decision very soon per Craig Custance of ESPN.com.

To be honest I had nearly forgotten that Thomas was still looking the goalie market has been so inactive this summer and there has been a complete dearth of spots available to sign anybody let alone a goalie who has been inactive for more than a year.

When you look around the league there just don't appear to be many if any spots for him to take. The one team that does pop to mind is Florida what with Scott Clemmensen being out for a few weeks and their goaltending relying just on young Jakob Markstrom. But the Panthers aren't known to spend money either. Maybe the Flames would be interested or maybe that's just me not trusting Karri Ramo to be a No. 1 in the NHL at all.

Or perhaps most interesting of all would be in Vancouver to back up Roberto Luongo. Man would that be fun. They have a little more than $2 million in cap space and while people like Eddie Lack he has no NHL experience.
