Unlike most of you, I waited 40 years for a Cup and can now go to my maker satisfied whether they win another one or not. 2011 was epic. Same for the 04 Red Sox.
Difference is, I was able to purchase a boxed set of the 04 Sox yanks and WS complete games. I plan to watch it when I retire.
Serious question: Did they ever make a boxed set of complete games for the B's Cup run? I'd pay serious money for that.
Good Lord, so would I. Unfortunately the only thing available is a set of the four Vancouver wins and Game 7 of the Tampa series.
However, NESN is currently re-running the 2011 series on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (they're on the Montreal series right now) so fire up the DVR. They've said they're televising every game, so they must have gotten permission to use Versus.
Yeah its not like he's ever injured or anything...
Hasn't he only had 1 injury that's held him out for any significant amount of time (being this past spring)?
He missed a few games in his rookie season, and had some off-season surgery, but other than that I don't remember him missing a ton of time. By reading some posts on here you'd think we were talking about Tuukka DiPietro
Incidentally, this -- THIS RIGHT HERE -- is why you do NOT burn the bridges behind players who leave town, whatever cloud they depart under. Having a door open to TT would have been a good thing right now, but "we have Tuukka, so **** Thomas."
If the media and fans had been gentler at the time, we might have a chance of getting the man back here. But no, Boston was too vicious and Thomas is too proud, so I don't see it ever happening now.
