If he wants a one year short deal, I'd take him. If he wants $4mil or something, get out of here and let someone else risk it. Could turn out great for them. Could backfire.
I'll give you he may be the exception, but it isn't like Thomas sucked before he left. And he asked what we knew about goalies who took off a year, and I gave him an example.
