However, it is nice to hear that he is making strides and playing better. Good work Beacon.
Do you remember Ziggy Palffy? Would you take a player like that? Of course you would because even though he didnt go into the corners, he was a 40-40 player. Even if Thomas becomes a 30-30 player, we will be very happy.
His bread and butter should be scoring. Instead, he fights with big guys in the corners, which will lead to injuries (see: Bourque). I love that when he hits, he drives through his opponent, but no need to stay in the corner. That is for Yogan, Noob, Wilson. Thomas needs to go get himself open and fire the puck where the goalie wont catch it.
