Thomas strikes me as the best alternative in FA as a stop-gap solution, due to the elite level he was at a year ago and his frienship with Marty. We could also look at Backstrom, but I feel as though Minny will re-sign him or that he'll be looking for a slightly longer deal than say Thomas (maybe three years?).
No, I'm with you there. I just doubt that yet another old goalie is the solution to our unending goaltending problem. Especially when he hasn't played a single game all year long and went out the way he did.
