I said that the other day. Noticed it for years, but never brought it up. People call Lundqvist Lundpads, and I'm all for that, and call him that too.
Though Thomas looks like he has more upper body equipment than anybody else in the league. He looks like a blow up doll or something. Either That or he's wearing stuff way too big for him. Most inflated looking top heavy goaltender. I swear he's got 200 lbs of equipment on.
i never really cared about thomas. but lately, the more said about him, the more he comes across as a horsedick.
He had a couple dominant years here. Tonight he played a really good game, but he hasn't been sharp lately. Compare his impossible save on Clarkson in our game in January to the easy one he gave up to Clarkson last game. He's giving up a lot of easy ones in the last 2 horrible months of this team the Bruins. Lundqvist is now right behind him, and has fallen into that trend of giving up stoppable goals.
I can see him being traded off next year at or before the deadline to finish out his contract, and career if Rask can come back strong.
I easily could have seen Rask being given a big contract this Summer cause he's an RFA, and Thomas being sent away. That's if Rask hadn't gotten injured. Thomas has been inconsistent for a couple months. Not just him that whole team.
i just saw that getzlaf has only 9 goals this year. what the double ****?
That is a surprising stat. Off year for him, I guess.

Veilleux got another assist last night, he's the only player we sent to Minnesota who is producing in the NHL. Foster has no points, and Napalm got sent down. Meanwhile back at the ranch, Zidlicky is awesome.
