    Thank you Vezina...

    ...for telling Tim Thomas he's not among the top three goalies in the game. Anyone who watches Thomas regularly, knows this is the oxygen he breathes, that this is exactly the type of motivation that turns the puck into a beachball for this guy.

    i don't think you are too far off on this gord. TT will be the best player on the ice tonight. i smell a shutout. post game interviews will feature him wearing that mr.T starter kit. GO BRUINS!!

    Agreed, but he is hardly a snub for the Vezina. The finalists are well deserved.

    Re: Thank you Vezina...

    seo - that was my thinking.  You can't really argue that Lundqvist had a better year, or Quick, or Rinne.  Lundqvist and Quick had sub-2.00 GAAs, and all three were top 5 in sv% among goalies to play more than 40 games.  Rinne led the league in wins, Lundqvist was third, Quick 5th.  Thomas's 2.36, .920, and 35 wins wasn't far off - surely if there was a list of 5-7, he'd be on it - but TT's probably the only one who will fight to the death that he deserved more consideration....

    I am surprised Brian Elliott didn't at least get to the final 3 though - 1.56, .940 and .605 winning percentage in 38 games?  I don't think you should win if you're never the undisputed starter on your own team, but I am surprised he didn't get this much of a nod.

    i don't want to put words in gords mouth, but here goes... i don't think he was implying that TT was snubbed. only that TT will want to prove to the world he is still "one of the best in the world". i really believe TT himself would tell you he was not vezina-worthy this season. but he'll use that as a reason to show everyone "i'm still here, don't forget about the reigning vezina and con smythe winner"- or maybe he meant that he thinks he was snubbed. anywho... GO BRUINS!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

    But he might want to show everyone that he is Conn Smythe worthy.

    no, I get that. he has proven to be one of the best goalies in the world and would think he thrives off the fact he needs to continually prove it.

    Individual awards who cares? The Stanley cup is all that matters.
    I can't remember who won last year but I know who won the cup.

    I think the 3 nominated had a better regular season than Timmy did, theyre very deserving. I'm not sure I'd paint the vezina winner as the best int he game though. I'd look at more of a 3 year window and another Cup and Conne Smythe would cement it for Timmy.

    As far as I'm concerned until someone can pull off a Vezina, Roger, Conn, a cup & breaking records in the process? TT is best on the planet, until someone else can come along & pull at least half that? I don't think you can dispute where TT stands,  regardless if he's Vezina finalist or not! Unless TT stinks up the joint tonight. There's no other goalie I would want starting in a game 7!
