and again, i didn't see nearly enough of Thomas's play to have much of an opinion about his level of play (outside of the impressive stats), but his play vs the habs all regular season certainly didn't stand out to me as Vezina-worthy (at least not ahead of Price, Lundqvist, Rinne, and Miller).

won't be least bit surprised if Thomas wins on the strength of those amazing stats/
Well, since I assume that no one like, say, Bud Selig or Troy Aikman have votes, it's reasonable to expect that those with a vote have more than just a passing familiarity with all the candidates and likely don't rely entirely on stats at all (although something as monumental as breaking a record is going to bias votes and is obviously derivative of a purely stats argument).
