Public sentiment appears to be on his side, and that’s understandable. For more than 20 years now, Thomas has been one of the finest people in the game, to go along with a borderline Hall of Fame career of 421 goals. Twice previously – from 1985-87 and 1998-2001 – he’s played well for the Maple Leafs, recording seasons of 20, 35, 28 and 26 markers, and throughout his career, “Stumpy” has been among the great clutch scorers in overtime games… regular season and playoffs. Though he hasn’t stated so, publicly, it seems a given that he would sign with the Leafs for close to the NHL minimum ($450,000 U.S.), and his desire to continue playing is genuine.
