In Response to Re: SICK ABOUT TT BASHING!
you got in olsonic. I think hes a good guy, I have admitted before that I never liked his style, and I don't think that is anything I need to apologize for. I think he is over rated, and has been since about a quarter of the way through his vezina winning season. Remeber, he was splitting time with Manny Fernandez, and a lot of people thought that Fernandez was, before the break, the better of the two. Is he a bad goalie? no. Was his vezina campaign a product of the bruins system in which no goalie has ever done poorly? yes. Was it a bad contract? good god yes. Good guy, solid to good goalie, very bad contract.....now RELAX peanator

Wow. I don't know a soul who thought Fernandez was better than Thomas. Fernandez got the majority of the cake assignments, starting many games against the league's lower quality teams. He was the clear backup and Thomas was the clear starter.
No goalie has ever done poorly in the Bruins current system. There have only been three. No goalie has ever let in seven goals in the current system. Also, no goalie has scored a hat trick. One has won the Vezina.
Fernandez 2.59GAA and .910SV%
Thomas 2.10GAA and .933SV%
One of those is acceptable. One is stellar. (Elaine: Stellaaaaaaaah)
PB37, the more you post about Thomas, the more it is clear how little you know. You have your bias against the player, and that's okay. There are guys in the league that I can't stand and I can't tell you why. I just don't like them. The difference is that I can admit that there really is no basis for my dislike.
(btw: The whole "ask yourself a question and answer it" is a terrible way to present an idea.)
