Not saying Montoya is the next Tim Thomas, was just pointing out to the facetious poster that thought Montoya would have stopped playing because he didn't pan out as expected.
Ok, I get your point now.

Just want to point out every time when we are on the subject, that Tim Thomas was always a fantastic goalie, who just had to wait for his opportunity. It's not like he suddenly became great in his 30's.
