This wasn't exactly the Roy '93/Giguere '03 legendary type of run that it has come to be remembered as.
Thomas had the Smythe locked up after his game 6 win. He had already broken Kirk McLean's playoff save record. Luongo would have been the best choice for Vancouver but thats not really saying much. His run doesnt seem that legendary because it we have seen great goalie runs too often (Kipprusoff, Roloson, Halak etc.) Over time Thomas's 2011 playoffs will be appreciated more.
