David Desharnais Profile, Tim Thomas on Facebook, Semin, Voracek and More

Tim Thomas - Boston Bruins v Washington Capitals - Game Six
Good morning Hab fans!

What a delight.

After making controversial comments on Facebook before and skipping out on his team's visit to the White House, Tim Thomas has now chimed in on the gay marriage debate.

Once again, via Facebook... you know, because he wants to protect his private life and be grumpy with reporters.

Thomas' story of perseverance and success was something to behold at first, but it now seems like his accomplishments have gone to his head wee bit, no?

Habs and Hockey News

- Our newest Addict, Amos Legault, recently asked if David Desharnais' line should be split up. It is now Sean Lloyd's turn to chime in, contemplating the future of the young center in his latest player profile.

- Much maligned Alex Semin signed a one-year, $7 million deal with the Carolina Hurricanes. Say what you will about the salary and the player, it is a short contract that could provide significant rewards for the Canes.

- Jakub Voracek signed a four-year, $17 million extension with the Philadelphia Flyers. As our Fred Poulin alluded to on Twitter, that sure seems like a lot of dough for forward who has only hit the 50 point plateau once. Meanwhile, over at Sports Illustrated, Stu Haeckel contemplates the Flyers' next move after missing out the big names this summer.

- At The Hockey News, Adam Proteau muses over the decline of the Colorado Avalanche.
