TO is 3 years from being relevant and 3.1 year from proving I was wrong.
This post is full of WiN

I'm starting to think you have no idea what your talking about. With the exception of a bad goal in game 2 overtime. Tim Thomas was UNREAL. He kept them in games they had no business being in while Luongo was getting beat by a barrage of softies in 4 of the 7 games.

Vancouver was decimated with injuries and while they often out-shot the Bruins they rarely created quality scoring chances. Vancouver simply didn't have the horses and lost the battle of attrition

Thomas was good, but let's not pretend he was the savior for the Bruins in that series. He played solid, like the rest of the Bruins. The same couldn't be said about the Canucks. That was the difference. 'UNREAL'...Thomas was as good as he had to be..not unreal.

Back on topic though. It's unlikely the Leafs chase and acquire a goaltender that's temporarily retired, no?

Chara, Seidenberg, Bergeron (et al) had a lot to do with that.

Rask never beat out a healthy Thomas. No reason to think he would have this season either.

LOL. I've always believed that if Thomas was on Vancouver and Lu on Boston, Vancouver would have swept.

Luongo gave his team no chance to win. He was mentally fragile and couldn't handle the pressure of playing on hostile ice in Boston. Now imagine him playing on hostile Vancouver ice 1 more game (assuming it went 7, which it wouldn't have).

Tim Thomas and the Toronto and really far more liberal Canadian media, this needs to happen just to watch this disaster.

we definitely watched different games. the canucks had very very few quality scoring opportunities, just soft weak shots. im thinking you cant tell the difference due to thomas's acrobatic style.

no clue how anyone could see it this way. the entire canucks team no showed most of the series. luongos only way to win was shutouts. and he made it to game 7. the only game the nucks won that wasnt a shutout, thomas handed burrows an open net. like i said, i duno what you are talking about, but it doesnt jive with the games that were played.

You can start to think whatever you want. While he may have kept them in a games that they lost he wasn't very necessary in the 4 wins. And he was the goat on the OT goal. (just ask Luongo)

He certainly deserved the CS, nobody else really stood out enough. That's pretty common when goalies get it.

And the under-rating of Thomas starts only after of one year, yet Toews still gets over-rated for his accomplishment.. Weird world.. Someone probably soon says that Quick had superior performance.

That hasn't stopped him before. The guy thrives on the ice. He'd probably be even more motivated to be the best.

and this is when I realized that you have no idea what you're talking about. We couldn't score, and we didn't get a lot of quality scoring chances. Luongo collapsed with the team, he didn't cause it.

Canucks fans can't comment on players or goalies being able to preform in the playoffs without people calling out our guys, even though it's irrelevant.

Game 7 Vancouver played great, Thomas played great, Luongo sucked.

Guys there's a simple solution.

If Thomas wants to come to Toronto and Burke feels he still has lots to give. Offer him a minor league deal with tons of incentives to bump his salary. The guy doesn't strike me as a player who will demand lots of money. He'd much rather show the world he's right and their wrong. It's a win-win situation. Burke can still look for a goalie and if Thomas plays great. He rolls with him at a marginal cost compared to luongo. I'd take a year off motivated Thomas over over hyped since he left Florida and clutch less luongo.

Really? You think offering a two-time Vezina winner a minor-league deal would fly?

If its a one year deal I'm okay with that. It gives Burke a chance to re-evaluate what Reimer can do.

Better than going into the season with two unproven goalies IMO.

I think he was referring to the disaster it would be in interviews not on the ice. There is no doubt that TT would bring the skills on the ice.

I agree the interviews would be the greatest on top of that TT in HBO live. YES PLEASE!!!

Vancouver did not have a good game 7.

Interesting take on Vancouver's effort in game 7, I've not heard anyone say anything even close to what you've just said. Luongo wasn't nearly good enough, but neither was anyone on the ice in riot blue.

I'd offer Thomas a 2 yr deal worth 8 million (4 per year)

Or

a one year deal for 5 million.
