    Id say the Penguins would have to include Matt Cooke in the Deal so they could beat the tar out of him in practice then cut him.

    Okay, wait.  Put this another way because the Hart isn't for the best player, but the most valuable performance of the season.  So do you think a centre who scores 64 goals and 132 points is worth more or less than a goaltender with a 1.81 GAA and .945 Save% when it comes to winning the Stanley Cup?

    If you did a league-wide VORP for the two, Crosby's currently worth 20 more goals (either scoring or assisting) than his nearest competitor, Stamkos (132-112), while Thomas is currently worth 23.78 fewer goals against than his nearest competitors, Varalmov/Quick.  If you take away history and hype, it sure looks like it's a very very close competition.  That everyone here takes Crosby in a heartbeat is at least in part proof that you score for show, defend for dough.

    Good comparison Bookboy.  If you you throw out age/money and just ask who is more valuable for your team this season, statistcally it's actually pretty close.  Crosby's season has been remarkable and so has TT's.  I would take Crosby though, he is doing it with very little help.  TT benefits from an extremely good defensive system and the league's best shut down defensman.  Rask would be almost as good.

    Don't tell the TT worshippers that Boston has a good D.As far as some are concerned,TT has done it entirely  on his own this year.I like TT but the fact is,it's a team game.

    How come only the people with nothing to say write junk like this. Its a legit question and the debate from a few posters is interesting.

    What if Thomas was 23 and producing at this level (meaning he had won a Vezina at age 21).
    That should make it a bit more interesting...
    It is like saying would you rather have Roy or Lemieux.

    [QUOTE]first of all you will never see a crosby like player come to boston when they are in their prime!!  now if you want to see a crosby like player then you would need to wait until said player is 40 years old or just after catastrophic knee surgery!  this is the bruins way!

    Yeah,too bad they can't be last place for a few years(ala Pittsburgh)so they can make that happen  for you.Very crafty of Pittsburgh indeed.

    See, my first thought was "Mario!!".  But...well...scoreboard.  4-2.  No telling how many more Mario would have if he'd been healthy, of course.

    If you have read my posts you will see that I have a lot to say.  However, Thomas for Crosby is just crack smoking nonsense.
