Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas -- yes, the same Tim Thomas who has talked of taking a one-year sabbatical -- has reportedly waived his no-trade clause.

According to the Boston Globe, Thomas waived the no-movement clause that is in place until July 1, when the final year of his deal kicks in, and could soon be traded.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli confirmed that several teams have asked about Thomas's availability. He said teams are looking to land Thomas, who has vowed he won't play in 2012-13, in an effort to get to the salary cap floor, which is approximately $54 million for next season.

Thomas has a cap hit of $5 million even though his contract calls for him to be paid $3 million.
