Rumors that have linked the Flyers to the Bruins in recent trade discussions might be just that, according to a source close to the situation. Though the Bruins have been shopping Tim Thomas, the goaltender is “not on [Philadelphia's] radar,” said the source. Thomas, who carries a $5 million salary cap hit will be a little easier to take on for interested teams with Tuesday’s news that the NHLPA has exercised an inflator clause to bump the salary cap up to about $59 million.

Thomas, who went 36-11-7 with a 2.10 goals against average en route to winning the Vezina Trophy as the league’s top netminder in ’08-’09, lost his starting job to Tuukka Rask this past season and had offseason hip surgery. He went 17-18-8 with a 2.56 GAA this past season and has three years remaining on his four year, $20 million deal.
