Tim Thomas

Basically, no one has disputed the weak skating and puckhandling issue BUT a third issue has been raised - adaptability or specifically the ability to integrate a team or organization. A player or in this case a goalie has to have the ability to recognize the needs and opportunities available at a specific time and place. Apply his specific talents to the specific talents and needs of a team and an organization.

Some goalies were able to do this very quickly - Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur, Roberto Luongo. By accounts to date, Tim Thomas was not able to do this early in his career. Eventually he adapted.
