Yeah, Thomas has effectively retired. That's completely irrelevant. At the time he won the cup he was performing at an ELITE level... in fact, he performed at an ELITE level for most of his career.
Alright. I didn't have Thomas' stats or accolades in my back pocket (and I know you pay extra attention to Goalies because you are one) but my point still stands. You're harping on about Thomas but ignoring the other 3 examples I used. I could probably go back even farther if you want.
