I agree with you. The invite was to celebrate the achievements of the Bruins, not a political function, but then again, he is free to do as he chooses.

Wow..never heard of that before. Always thought Thomas was a top class guy. I guess his wishes and opinions have to be respected but yeah, kinda lame..I'm sure with Mass. being generally a blue state that may rustle a few feathers.

He has actually gained more of my respect. In a world full of fakeness and bs he stood up for his beliefs. Takes more of a man to stand up for what he believes in than a man who puts on a fake persona.

He should be kissing Obama's feet for allowing those goons into the white house.

just because you go with your team to be honored at the White House doesn't mean you are indorsing the occupant

If his true reason was a difference of political opinion then that is a friggin embarrassment to the entire team.

What's embarassing is some idiot coming into a hockey forum and exclaiming "Let's go Yankees"

Just read an article on it, and here's how I feel.

Good for him.  He simply stood up for what his beliefs were.  He didn't try to push his beliefs onto his team, but he stood firm and declined the invitation.

Props to Chiarelli & Neely for asking Thomas to come with the team, but allowing him his freedom of choice when he declined.

This man stood up for a belief that he has.  He was negative toward nobody, and nobody was harmed.  He embarrased nobody.  We need more people like Thomas in the world today who aren't willing to go along with the status quo.

Whether or not you agree with his political lean, you should admire a positive citizen (who's in the limelight), who chooses to respectfully stand firm.
