Dominik Hasek was a similarly spectacular goalie who elected to go in and out of the NHL at various times during his age 37-42 seasons. If Tim Thomas at 39 can replicate what Hasek did at ages 41 and 42 for Ottawa and Detroit, it would be a great catch for the Flyers. I don't make a Hasek comparison lightly, but Tim Thomas is in that class. From age 33-37, he posted all-time great numbers and was even better in the playoffs. Looking at our goaltending situation, I don't see how the Flyers could afford to turn their noses up at Tim Thomas (as many posters want to do). What if he has one more great playoff run left? His resume emphatically suggests that he is capable of it.
