Thomas hasn't played competitive hockey in a year. You expect him to come in and play lights out? I'd expect him to come in and pull his groin.
Come on. How many shots Lundqvist hasn't had to attempt to make a save because it pinged off somebody, or when he makes a save, it's because someone put themselves in a position to make the shot an easy save?

And I definitely agree that he can spot the puck well. The only flaw I see in his game is that he sucks moving the puck, and that's one aspect of his game that will never get better.

Plus, Thomas doesn't play as many games as other tenders. I use him only as a short stop-gap before getting a goalie who can play for a longer amount of years.
