[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What's up with Timmy : He's always been like this his whole career, its bad lighting, guy crossed over and blocked my view, hit something etc. I like TT, just wish he would man up once in a while. As we've seen, goalies do let in bad goals, it happens.That being said, a great performance tonight would help alot in getting the B's off this skid.

Absolutely spot-on. Finally someone who gets it.
Thomas has been this guy since the day he stepped foot in Boston. Wild style, very streaky, very suceptable to out of position and soft goals.... all the while capable of long stretches of super-hot play.
Try to think back to the days when he was supposed to be replaced by Hannu Toivonen, by Raycroft, by Manny Fernandez. The year he lost his job to Rask... in retrospect everything he did wrong was retroactively blamed on an injury.
And as 50 says, he's always, always made excuses. Never says "I blew that one, that game got away because of a soft goal," Its always something. Just who he is.
The thing is, he's been excellent for awhile and includes a Cup win, so we forget what comes with this particular box of chocolates, so we blame stuff like politics that we dont like. Its just Timmy being Timmy.
There's no other choices now, so all we can do is hope he re-sets himself by playoff time and hang on for the ride.
