If Thomas is on his game, we're cup contenders, if not, at worst he becomes a backup and Lindback gets more starting time. However I doubt Thomas will slip that far behind if he does decide to come back.

Marty-Thomas would be a great story also.
My thinking exactly! We're currently stocking up one of the best and deepest prospect cupboards in the league, why sacrifice pieces we already have and/or ones we could get (future picks) for a goaltender when we have Vasilevski in the system?

Thomas was an elite goaltender before his one year hiatus, would not cost us anything besides money in a contract, is really good friends with Marty and he's a veteran leader who can be a stabilizing presence in net. Seems like a perfect stop gap solution for our team .
