Boston GM Peter Chiarelli said that according to Tim Thomas' agent, Bill Zito, nothing has changed with regard to his client's decision not to play in 2012-13.

Chiarelli also said that right now he is preparing for the upcoming season with the mindset that Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin will be his goaltenders. Thomas' announcement was surprising to say the least and the Bruins were caught off guard as well because they have been forced to make some changes to their off-season plans as a result of their alterations in the crease.
