I also don't think you would bring in Tim Thomas without the expectation that he is starter material.
Based on what we know about 39 year old goaltenders who just took a year off from playing we know....


That's why people don't want Thomas. What's so hard to understand? I'd say that's a legit gripe over this idea. Thomas being almost 40 and coming off of not playing for a year is arguably a bigger "unknown factor" than Steve Mason.
