HOUSTON - The legend manning the sidelines, Thomas returns for his 24th season with the organization. The 55 year old finished his playing career with the Lightning before coming in as an assistant coach. GM Kyle Kappe said "Having him [Thomas] gives us the calm that we need for the upcoming season. We understand there was some unsubstantiated locker room issues with players and Thomas, but we feel the early loss in the playoffs was merely an exception to the rule and not indicative of team chemistry. We look forward to continued success under Thomas."
