Meltzer thought he would be a good option for the Flyers and become a starter again and I agreed..hence why I posted the below thread in the summer.
You can get an idea of the arguments here
....one post I made was that I didn't agree his injury would make him all the sudden some cripple. I wish I could say the same for Leighton who was challenged to begin with.
The question is not really about whether Thomas would be as strong as he is thus far which will be tempered as the season goes on but whether he was a better option than Leighton and Boucher despite the contract. Bob has luckily settled the situation for now but we shall see what the goaltending situation is in April...
EDIT: Here is one of Meltzer's posts within that thread
