Talk about poorly timed promotions, the Florida Panthers gave away Tim Thomas bobbleheads to the first 7,500 fans on Sunday. This was a little problem, of course, because Tim Thomas is no longer with the Panthers, traded on Wednesday to Dallas.
The organization already had the bobbleheads made, though, so they went through with the promotion even with Roberto Luongo starting against Boston.

To try and make things right, the Panthers also gave out Roberto Luongo posters to fans with a shot from his first stint with the organization.
