What will Tim Thomas' legacy be in Boston?

Tim Thomas is an interesting fellow. That much we know.

But we also know that he was probably the biggest reason behind the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup Championship. The dude stood on his head -- and then lost his head a bit in the following year.

But how will we remember him? Mike Felger, Kirk Minihane, and Ron Borges take a stab at it.

"I think his legacy is going to be a guy who was great when they needed him, nobody has ever had a better postseason run in this town in any year, but the other stuff is going to be a factor, there's no question about it," Minihane said.

Felger, though, thinks that in the long run the Cup is what will stand out.

"I think in 10 years, I think it's going to be 90 percent what he did in 2011, and maybe just a little smidge of he lost it in the end."

Tuesday, Feb. 21: Leafs turning green

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while spring training is ramping up in a big way down in Florida.

*The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to wear their great, green, old school St. Pat’s sweaters around St. Patrick’s Day this season.

*Jonathan Quick is on the ice and participating in hockey activity, but isn’t quite ready to return for the Los Angeles Kings.

*This is one of the best things you’ll see today with Vladimir Tarasenko making the 11th birthday celebration for a special little girl.

*The Edmonton Oilers could potentially make a lot of moves at the NHL trade deadline, and unsurprisingly, there is quite the call for them to dump Benoit Pouliot after that bad contract they signed him to a couple of years ago.

*Lyle Richardson is predicting the biggest buyers at the 2017 NHL trade deadline and the Bruins are not among the nine teams listed.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) James Mirtle goes 1-on-1 with Toronto Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello a wide range of subjects for the Athletic up in Toronto.

*Tommy Wingels continues to fight for inclusion in hockey even as he’s gone from the San Jose Sharks to the Ottawa Senators this season.

*For something completely different: A perfect pool trick shot video will blow your mind and probably get a few pool tables ruined with people trying to recreate it.
