    [QUOTE]Thomas basher here. He had no business winning the Vezina.  Manny Fernandez had the same stats at the All Star break, but got hurt.  Oh, and he didnt play like it was a Chinese fire drill in his end, making every easy simple save look like the hardest thing in the world. If you know so little about goaltending that you think an award makes you elite, you are a fool.  If you are going to put an overrated overpaid mediocre goalie like Thomas who makes a living out of being out of position on every single play in the same category as a Brodeur, a Luongo, a Lundquist, a Miller, a Ward, a Kipprasoff or several other goalies in the NHL today, that makes you a pink hatted fanboy who started watching hockey in 2002. Thomas is a nice story.  He lucked into staying with the B's as a series of goalies who were supposed to be the starter imploded or got injured (Raycroft, Toivonen, Fernandez, etc).  He had a nice season last year behind a defense-first well-coached system with the same stats as the other goalie before his injury, and he lucked into a Vezina because Brodeur was injured, some guys had off years and some silly voting.  However, he will always be the guy who is out of position, making all the uniformed fans think he's great because he makes 5 circus saves a game.  He's also the guy who always gives up a bad goal, usually in OT.  And lets not forget the obscene, completely ridiculous contract.  We could have given that money to Kessel and actually won games. I dont know if Rask is the answer. Too soon to tell.  It is interesting that he's been so successful without having to overreact and come up with 5 highlight-reel saves a game, isnt it? Calm, controlled, PROFESSIONAL.  He's a pleasure to watch, and I wish I could watch him every night instead of the Tazmanian Devil back there.

    Posted by crono420[/QUOTE]

    Yea I know he's the only number 1 goalie in the history of the NHL to allow a softy! He definately should be shot! Never mind the 3 chances the B's had with an open net. And OH yea...Did the B's not get the win? Which is the whole reason you play the game? At least that's the way I always taught. I could be wrong though!

    How many games has Thomas cost this team?I think he's given away at least 4 games all on his own, this team should be at least 4 points up on Ottawa if not for his poor play.

    Are you guys really fans of this team? Tim gets flamed when he wins and flamed when he loses. No one denies he gave up a cheap one. It happens. They still got 2 points. If they don't make the playoffs at all and Ottawa does then I will come back and say you were all right and I was wrong (if I remember.) LOOK FORWARD AND NOT BACK, WE WON!

    EXCUSE ME!! HELLO KETTLE, Don't tell me about excuses buddy! There's ur fair share of excuses for your boys when they mess up on here! My post is bang on factual! Is Thomas the only #1 goalie to allow a soft goal? Do you not agree that the Thomas bashers are so quick to jump all over him as soon as he makes the slightest mistake & those same morons don't say a word when he saves their bacon! Am I wrong? So my post are to make a point to the all these morons drival! I don't use excuses.. I use facts to back up my arguments & I don't talk outta the wrong side of my body! Am I not agreeing that the goal was soft? You're still in denial about the mistake Rask made in the 4-1 Isles game. So don't YOU talk to me about making excuses!

    Here's another thing. Every point the B's got this yr was never because the other goalie gave up a softie? Every team in this league gets breaks people. Some maybe more than others, but nonetheless the B's have gotten their fair share. You gotta be good to be lucky & lucky to be good! The important thing right now is 2pts instead of 0.

    I have said time and time again that thomas makes incredible saves and sometimes saves the game, but he gives away games (or points) too frequently. I would prefer to have a consistant goaltender...the good news is, we have one

    I still really like Thomas and want him to be the starter of this team (he did go to UVM, just like me). I was impressed how he rebounded in the shootout. After losing the momentum very late in the third he came up with some big saves when it mattered

    Best way to explain the treatment Thomas gets; Damned if you don't and you're damned if you don't.
    Didn't he save our azzes in Ottawa earlier this season ....

    How quickly you forget how the Bruins got outplayed that game in Ottawa and Thomas bailed them out. If he didn't the Bruins would have been down 3-4 goals and Bruins offense does no bailing out.
    See what I mean ,  the haters just want  him to fail.
    Thank you for proving my point KK.

    a win is a win but flopper does have a bad habit of giving up soft goals at the worst possible time maybe it was rust  idk  but  it seems like  its adventure when  he is in the net

    "Does it matter? White or Red. He knows nothing about goaltending! That's for sure!"


    Know nothing about goaltending?  I suppose I could discuss the years I was paid to play goal, but given your posts on this subject, anyone with a brain can tell you are wrong every time.

    Again, lost about hockey?  Back to Mom's basement, Pink Hat Fanboy.  By the way, for the record, its Red.

    So, Mr Defend Tim Thomas no matter WHAT he does... I'll all ears about tonight.

    First goal... first shot... goes right through him.  Second goal... you tell us about the 5 on 3... anyone who knows anything about goaltending will point out he was looking in the WRONG CORNER like a Bantam goalie.  And the third... OMG... Dennis Potvin and the other announcer on NHL on the Fly were laughing about what a joke this guy is.  But Nitegown-38... tell us how Dennis Potvin doesnt know anything about hockey.  We are waiting.

    And could he look more like he was more clueless when 2 shots went wide in the SO and he finally got one at the end looking like a flopping goof? And bolts from the net like he's just won the Cup???  

    I will take Rask any day, every day.  Thats what a pro looks like.

    I went to the rookie training camp that year when Manny was showing the world how hard he could work.  The rookies were beating him like a rented mule.  While technically better than Thomas, his reaction time was bad.

    I can see you have some strong goalie opinions, you like the technically sound and athletic guys.  While I agree with you for the most part, recognize that Thomas messes with your mind because he looks so ungainly, doesn't move across the crease smoothly, and I could go on and on.  It is hard to swallow that a guy who does so many things wrong can be as good as he is.

    That all said, I think they should move him once they are 100% sure Rask doesn't do the Blaine Lacher, Raycroft or Toivenen thing.  That could be as long as 2 years from now.  Trade TT too soon, Rask does a disappearing act and then you have no goalie or Sabourin which is the same thing.

    Your WERE paid to play goal... Well I still am paid to play & I'm also a correspondent on NHL Home Ice on XM Satelitte MORON! I talk to Dennis Potvin all the time along with Phil Espostio, Dave Reid, Bill Clement & Gary Greene on & off the air. They all know Thomas is one of the best goalie's in the league & where the B'sk in other area's they have the best advantage more than any team in the league with their goalie's. They also agree with me about bringing in Rask slow, but sure! So you can take that to the bank. MORRRON!!!

    SoxFanInIL  ,  as soon as you start to defend your point with insults you prove one thing, you're a MORON.
    It's okay not to be a Thomas fan but the way you go about trying to prove a point by trying to be a bully behind your keyboard is beyond me.
    Don't worry I won't call you names if you just say you don't like Thomas's style.
    All I'm showing is how many goalies make what Thomas's salary and more.  His salary is within a number 1 goalie's bracket.  Like him or not !
    Then there's the Elite's.
    I do agree also that NHL GM's have overpaid goalies and it's biting ALL of them in azz.  Just too much money being spent.
