Compare to:

David Krejci
Brad Marchand
Patrice Bergeron
Rich Peverley

Really that much more talented down the center?

Thomas was almost out the the league last year (17 wins-18 losses in 09-10) and don't we have the god-gifted Green as our close to Norris trophy winner??
Kelly played center and Marchand didn't.

But yes, after Backstrom, that's a HUGE advantage for Boston.

Thomas will have won 2 of the last 3 Vezina trophies. Trying to discount his talent in any way is absurd.
