Although the news has only recently become public, Tim Thomas apparently waived his no-trade clause at least a week ago.

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli has emphasized that Thomas still doesn't plan on playing. The only thing any club that takes Thomas would be getting - unless the Bruins throw in an extra player to sweeten the deal - is Thomas' $5 million cap hit. While that might sound like a silly thing to want, a team having difficulty reaching the salary cap floor might be interested in it.
