Blah blah blah. i based my suggestion of trading Thomas on facts not delusions rooted in my own baseless opinions.
Fact: Thomas is a two time vezina winner, con smythe winner and a stanley cup champion.
Fact: No 40+ year old goalie has ever backed a team to a stanley cup victory.
Pro athletes get old fast and teams should trade aging stars while they still can get something for them. Most teams don't do this and over pay and stunt their teams future success by hanging onto players too long. The Patriots are the perfect example of a team that does not do this (Milloy, Law, Bledsoe, etc...) How'd those moves work out for the Patriots?
I'd rather get something for Thomas than to assume he'll be the first 40+ year old goalie to ever back his team to the cup. You think otherwise based on your extensive NHL scouting experience and thoughs on Rask and Khudobin. Unlike you I don't claim to be an expert on either player or any player in the NHL for that matter.
I'm basing my suggestion on facts (again no 40+ year old goalied ever winning the cup) and the fact that moving Thomas could help the team by getting assets that could win future cups. You think Thomas is gonna win 4 straight more cups with the Bruins and not only be the first goalie in modern NHL history to win not one but multiple stanley cups as 40+ year old? Seriously?
How long do you want Thomas to be the B's goalie? Till he's 50? If you need Thomas in your life so bad go to Ebay and see if you can get some of his game used cup protectors. Hell you must have the time. Any idiot that actually has enough time to post 8,000+ messages on on message board must live in his two dads' basement. Go get some sun, clear air and lay off the message board for a few weeks. Who knows, you might find out there is life beyond message board posting. I doubt it though in your case.
I eagerly await one of your clever retorts filled with more wisdom from your inifite experience as both an NHL player and Front Office Executive. Carry on good sir.
