You think a physical last summer is going to determine whether or not Thomas' hip was going to hold up to the rigors of the NHL season (and playoffs)? Hip problems tend to be chronic and get worse in goalies once they start... not the other way around. I'm sure he would (and did) pass a physical last summer -- that being said, he was probably still recovering at the time.
