Thomas no stranger to Wings

Steve Thomas won't feel like an outsider when he arrives in Detroit next week. He and Steve Yzerman have been close friends for years and he plays golf with Kris Draper in Toronto during the off-season. He also is an old teammate of Chris Chelios, from their days in Chicago. Too bad he won't be able to play with the Wings until the game in Dallas next Wednesday. As Brian already mentioned, he is having immigration problems (which stem from his being born in England, of all things). He needs a visa to enter the country and is in the process of acquiring one. You'd think they'd have less of a problem with an athlete and someone from one of the country's biggest allies but I guess not. It's probably not all that unusual but the Wings need him here now, for the next two games.
