[QUOTE]Bob, your a moron, Rask got pulled in buffalo, not thomas. Thomas was not sharp in that game but you cant hold that against him, he wasn't supposed to play, he was supposed to rest, should he have been prepared, probably but with hearing how great rask is? why should he expect to be pulled in to play when he is getting his first game off in 2 weeks.. ottawa won last night, put some points up too.. Montreal, that collapse isnt on thomas its on the team, they got outshot 23-8 over the last period plus.. He had 39 saves and was the number 2 star.. The atl game thomas posted a 1.85 GAA and a .938 svs%.. got beat in the shoot out.. yeah, totally his fault.. over his last 8 games he is 5-0-3 (taking the loss for buffalo) with a GAA 2.6 (including last night, and buffalo) so yeah he is horrible should be sat...

Here's the deal oh omnipotent one. TT is a product of playing for a good defensive team. And like all decent goalies he excels if the team in front of them plays sound defensive hockey. However throughout his entire career Thomas has been prone to bad goals, last minute crap goals and has been terrible in the shoot out. If you claim to be such a hockey expert and actually watch Bruins games if you don't see that this is the truth your either a sycophant or just a dope. Let's also not forget that Thomas has never stolen a series in playoff round and has been fairly average if not unspectacular in the playoffs in general. We lost to Carolina in the playoffs a few years back in large part because Ward outplayed him by a HUGE margin. You put Thomas on a marginal or bad defensive hockey club and his numbers will be TERRIBLE. And before you say, blah blah blah All Goalies would, I'll stop you great one. That's BS. Great goalies unlike your boyfriend Thomas still play lights out regardless of the team in front of them on most nights.
Tuuka is a more technically sound, under control, focused goalie how rarely gets rattled. His style of play is conducive to the team winning even if they play bad. Let us not forget the B's weren't that great even defensively last year and he carried them. Again they were playing terrible yet where did Rask finish in GA and SV% last year. Oh that's right, at the top. His playoff performance was average but even a moron and quite possible great thinkers like yourself could see he was burned out and B's had a team wide fail.
Mark it down. If the B's make the playoffs I assure you they don't get past the 2nd round with Thomas and he'll give up another overtime goal or two to seal the teem's fate. Bank it. Now go back to life size poster of Thomas over you bed and do some mock tea bagging on your boyfriend's nuts.
