Well I guess all the wariness is now unfounded and to say NOBODY thought he would be worth it is a patently false straw man statement. No matter what.... FAIL on Holmgren's part. Even if Thomas wasn't an option based on people's trepidations (some valid)..there were other options as one poster said. There were too many question marks to begin with concerning Leighton, Walker and Zherdev. All the question marks for these three alone outweighed those for Thomas. His surgery wasn't anything crippling or that other goalies haven't recouped from. Wish I could say the same for Leighton who's still has no sensation in his foot and goes brain dead on certain short side shots!
