I'm not suggesting we throw the rest of the goaltenders to the wolves in favor of TT. But doesn't he have a winning record in the limited opportunity he was given with the B's?
Ratty, you are correct in that I was a little too harsh on Thomas given what he has doen when he played for the Bs. However, he is a journeyman goalie (and he should be very proud of what he has accomplished to date). He was an unrestricted free agent and no other team came calling.
It would be kind of like claiming that John Burkett could be the mainstay of a pitching staff. He does great with the talent he has, but I wouldn't want to depend on him as my go to guy. The same goes for Thomas.
