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.
Yes, Martin Brodeur has surely shown his adaptability playing for the same team in a defense first system for 19 straight years. When did he ever have to adapt?
