Tim Thomas wanted back in the NHL. The Florida Panthers wanted goaltending help.
Tuukka Rask turned an outstanding first season as the Boston Bruins' No. 1 goalie into a long-term commitment on Wednesday by signing an eight-year contract to stay with the Eastern Conference champions.
Jaromir Jagr is still available. So is goalie Tim Thomas, who continues exploring whether to make a comeback after taking a season off.
The puck has dropped on NHL free agency with a two-day negotiating window before players _ other than those whose contracts were recently bought out _ can sign Friday.
In 17 stunning seconds, Tuukka Rask's solid postseason was shattered.
The Chicago Blackhawks headed for the East Coast, one win between them and the Stanley Cup title.

A lesser goalie would have been flustered by the Chicago Blackhawks hot start.
Corey Crawford topped Tuukka Rask in the only stat that matters.
For all the talk about the Conn Smythe award, Tuukka Rask just wants to win after he played a supporting role when Tim Thomas led the Boston Bruins to the Stanley Cup two years ago.

The Chicago Blackhawks have joined the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup finals, featuring Original Six NHL franchises for the first time since 1979.
Boston reached the third round of the NHL playoffs for the second time since 1992. The other was 2011, when the Bruins won the sixth Stanley Cup in franchise history.
Tuesday, when President Obama honored the Los Angeles Kings, politics couldn't have been further away. Aside from perhaps a joke or two here and there.
Veteran goalie Tim Thomas, who has said he won't play this season, was traded by the Boston Bruins to the New York Islanders on Thursday for a conditional second-round draft choice either next year or in 2015.
Jonathan Quick and Martin Brodeur hugged and exchanged a few private words in the Stanley Cup finals handshake line.
Thomas wrote on his Facebook page in 2012 that he was taking a season off from hockey to focus on "friends, family and faith."
Tyler Seguin scored the only goal of a shootout, and goalie Tim Thomas denied Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp in the tiebreaker.
