    The detractors of Tim Thomas, where are you?

    Only 6 goals allowed in his last 5 starts !

    Anti-Thomas are rather quiet these days!

    Timmy and Rask ! Ouch ! What a Duo !!!!!

    Go Bruins !

    Imagine when Savard and Lucic will be back!

    We have a great team !

    Florida : win by 3 goals
    Pittsburgh : Overtime or shootout win

    No one doubts Thomas is a good regular season goaltender, it is the playoffs that we question hence the horrendous rebound in Game 7 last year.

    Series ending overtime goals usually end with "on edge unlikely goal" I did not blame Thomas I blame the defense that became a petrified forest in that series.

    here i am!! I look for consistency in a goaltender, and although thomas has a flair for the dramatic, he does let in soft goals that can be back breakers

    here i be too!! im just not fond of thomas,s helter skelter game....he makes the whole team work harder with his rebound control & flopping around....watch how many times off a rebound the b,s will get pinned in their zone with pressure....... look carefully next game when the opponent have the b,s running around & 90% of the time it will be from a thomas rebound left unattended....im not a great statman,maybe d-46 can help me out,whats the difference in goals scored FOR (not against) between rask & thomas....i love to see the energy on the offensive end then always used up guarding there net....its a fun effortless energy compared to a frustrating,exhausting energy.....thomas gets the job done with great flair & stats, his style is not teammate friendly   LOOK carefully next game & maybe "youll be a detractor too!"

    ou got it pucman. The goalie very very rarely steal a game when the B's are playing poorly. When the "D" is bad so is Thomas. You figure it out.

    Ok, #1, I wouldn't say that Thomas is the best in the business. There are a handful of goalies I would rather have over him. He had a Vezina year last year and that was great, but you can be great and a Vezina winner for one year and pretty much stink for the rest of your career (see: Jose Theodore).

    Let's face it, the guy lets up soft goals. It's a proven fact. We've all witnessed it at least some point this year (the game in mind is on the tip of my tongue, but I can't remember) and it has cause the team to lose some games they shouldn't have.

    Ok # 1 You dont know more then the GM`S that voted Thomas the best goalie. # 2 every goalie lets in a soft goal thats a proven fact including a few on Rask glove side this season. #3. Thomas has stolen games with 2 shutouts and a player of the game in Ottawa. #4 5 goals in 6 games is as good as it gets.#5. Thomas has not been a one year wonder and has the stats to prove it since joining the Bruins. So your arguments have zero facts and only opinions which makes them meaningless!!!!!!!!!!!!!

       With Thomas playing the majority of games last year, the bruins led the league in scoring, and had more 20 + goal scorers than any other team. So I guess they weren't all that "frustrating exhausted" last year.
       I have to laugh at you Thomas haters.You not only blame him when the inept defense on this team cannot clear a rebound, now it's his fault when the forewards are in a scoring slump.
       Next time you go to a bruins' game, and end up with a cold hot dog or a stale beer, keep your eye on TT, I'm sure he was somehow the cause of it.

    Re: The detractors of Tim Thomas, where are you?

    Timmy T. hasn't been at his best yet this year. But I wouldn't put much blame on him for the B's subpar start. The team wasn't scoring. You don't win many games scoring 2 goals or less. Don't tell that to the dolts over at the Icemantiz board though. Thomas gets blamed for every loss the Bruins suffer over there. He doesn't even have to be in net. ;)

    Re: The detractors of Tim Thomas, where are you?

    It is truly amazing to me how many people still doubt Thomas.  Stats the past 3 years:

    07-08 - 55 GS, 28-19-6 record, 3 SO, 2.44 GAA, 92.1 Sv%
    08-09 - 54 GS, 36-11-7 record, 5 SO, 2.10 GAA, 93.3 Sv%
    09-10 - 12 GS, 5-6-1 record, 2 SO, 2.23 GAA, 92.2 Sv%

    The big stat to look at is the Save %.  I see posters regularly saying that Thomas only plays well when the defense is playing well. Flop or not, the guy gets to pucks that he has no business saving, in addition to taking care of the easier shots, isn't that what you want from your goalie?  For those of you who say he can't keep the team in the game when it matters, the only way he would have been able to "help" the team out last week is by posting 3 straight shutouts.  And, finally, for those of you who whine about that "rebound" from Game 7 last year, get over yourself.  There are about 1000 different ways that play could have turned out, and unfortunately for the Bruins, it was an awkward bounce off of an awkward rebound.

    Maybe we should bring back Byron Dafoe or Jim Carey to help Thomas keep more pucks out of the net.

    Re: The detractors of Tim Thomas, where are you?

    Goals happen, and sometimes it's nobody's fault. Should the Penguins just bench Fluery for not covering the upper portion of the net on Hunwick's goal?  What about being completely frozen by Paille on the breakaway?  If he had done X and Y differently, maybe he could have prevented those goals.

    Goals happen, and the best a goalie can do is come up with some extraordinary stops on almost sure goals.  Oh and he sticks up for himself and his teammates.

    Save on Alfredsson:

    Re: The detractors of Tim Thomas, where are you?

    pucman has it perfectly.
    Whino you don't listen, and last time I checked this was a debate about thomas, not krejci, no? (and btw, krejci has been the model of consistancy, julien juggled the lines last year and his line frequently played against number one units, number 2 units, and number 3 units. even when not producing points he was consistant in his defensive game, faceoff percentage, penalty killing, and offensive chance producing)

    consistant goaltenders do not let in OT game winners from the red line.

    Look I'm not going to deny that hes a really good goalie (The GMs voted him the goalie that had the best season last year, not the best goalie in the NHL, big, big difference whino) but nobody can deny that he has incredibly poor rebound control and is prone to giving up soft goals....see the devils game, only lets in 2 goals, but should have had a shut out, the defense played out of its mind and he let in two soft goals (thats the game you were thinking of i believe pezzel)

    Hockey is not a game of stats whino

    Would you believe 48 members ? I'm happy with Thomas' play but we need an invisible fence to keep him from leaving the crease to play the puck. Every time he does, I start to get agita. With the latest shutout though, he'll probably get a bunch of starts in a row since Julien likes to go with the hot goalie, especially when it IS Thomas. He'll start all the games until he cools off.

    dkrecji46, for every soft goal the guy lets in, there is at least one sparkling save that he had no business making.  He wasn't his best against the Devils, but he had that one sparkler against Brylin.

    Thomas is the least of the Bruins' worries.

Thomas saved it with a head first dive... where did the rebound go?
