I'll just say it certainly weakens your argument.
Thomas is 39 and just took a year off.
He's not an elite goalie anymore. He's doesn't even have a contract.
Beside the point, he was drafted 217th overall and didn't even emerge as a starter until he was 32. So pretty much exactly the type of point I was making, he was signed as an FA by Boston and got to play behind Chara, Seidenberg, Boychuck, Ference, and a few others enroute to his cup win.
