PHT readers were mixed regarding Tim Thomas’ ideal destination

Sep 17, 2013, 10:22 PM EDT

The Florida Panthers garnered the most votes of four possible NHL destinations for goalie Tim Thomas, but the Colorado Avalanche and Calgary Flames came in very close.

Being that Thomas began his audition with the Panthers on Tuesday, it seems like a good time to check out the poll results regarding where he should’ve landed:

As you can see, it was especially close between Florida and Colorado, which makes sense since Thomas, 39, calls the latter area home.

Now, it’s worth mentioning that Thomas is only on a professional tryout with the Panthers. While he feels “almost reborn” there, there’s always the possibility that the two-time Vezina winner might impress yet find himself playing for a different NHL team in 2013-14.

Either way, it should be fascinating to watch.
