I can guarantee you that there will be multiple series won because one goaltender stepped up and made timely or spectacular saves and one didn't. It's been this way in every year of NHL history. The goaltender is the single largest difference maker in hockey.
Thomas won the Conn Smythe because of 4 rounds of great goaltending, it doesn't mean he clearly outplayed Price.
I think your memory isn't as good as you think it is either..

That series wasn't decided on goaltending. Tim Thomas faced less shots overall than Price (229 vs 242) and allowed 1 more goal. Three games, including game 7, went to OT.
This Series was literally decided by 1 goal.

If you think Thomas clearly outplayed Price you need to re-watch that series.
