As I mentioned, Scrivens wouldn't be the #1 goalie you're trading for. He'd be the backup if Clemmensen were to go for the new #1 goalie.

If Toronto had any goalie aspirations at all why are they not overpaying Boston? Thomas is one of the best in the game and his year off is pretty obviously a ploy, given the CBA sitch. Aquiring Thomas should cost very little, since he seems finished with Boston. Add in his ancientness and I think he might be a bargain!
Because Thomas isn't in the game. He's said he doesn't want to play this year, and there's no reason to take that as anything less than face value. If he truly wanted out of Boston and was prepared to play, he'd have either said that, or something along the lines of what Luongo said... so his team won't have a problem moving him.
