Didn't Raycroft win the Calder that year?

How can you hate Thomas? The guys look like the greatest gentlemen in the league, but he's a Bruins, and a Bruins for a couple more years.

I don't know, he's been impersonating a pretty good goalie this season.

I actually like Thomas. I admire players like him who've had to pay their dues, and then some, before making it. They show great preserverance.

I also like watching his unorthodox style, and he seems like a nice guy when interviewed. Without his gear on he looks like the type of guy who should be sitting at the end of the bar in Cheers having a beer with Norm.

He seems to have a bit of class, unlike some of his teammates....

Having said all that, if the Habs/Bruins meet this spring, I'll instantly hate Thomas with a passion.

(The way he flops around on the ice, the horseshoes are gonna fall out of his arse pretty soon.)

How is it that nowadays Bruins' fans post as much on our boards than on theirs.

8th place Bruins vs. 1st place Habs?
Did you start watching hockey last year?..
Upsets happen almost every year where at least one of the 8th or 7th seed wins vs 1st or 2nd seed.

Didn't the 8th place Habs beat your 1st seed Boston just a few years back too??..
Didn't 8th seed Edmonton make it to the cup 3years ago?..That year actually, all the low seeds in the West made it to the 2nd round.

Why is it we keep hearing that POs are like a new season?..That it has nothing to do with the regular season.

Point of the article was to show how Thomas has barely any PO experience. Doesn't mean he won't have a good PO, just simply he's inexperienced.

If you want the Cup, you do not want to play Montreal, even if you think you can beat them.
I agree, that is why it would be bad to have a Habs-Ruins 1st round, it will eliminate the chance of both teams to win the Cup. They will be exhausted/injured after round 1.

It seems a lot like how Byron Dafoe (yeah...remember him!....DAAAAA-FOEEEE, DAAAAA-FOOOOEEEE....gotta love the BC crowd) had a decent year taking them to 1st (2002), then Theo shut em down.

I also have to admit that he a Bruin (only one) that I actually like. Not that i wish the best for him or anything, just think he's not like the rest of them and doesn't (in my mind) represent what they stand for. I also think that he will not be subject to the playoff crumble that everyone is predicting. I think he will be very solid and we will have to have Kovy and Tanguay snipe and have awesome puck movement to beat him. The B's D is way more solid compared to then so getting to the net and getting "dirty" goals will be much harder.

Let's not take any chances with Thomas, he has the potential to really burn us. I'm worried, well, pre-occupied with how Pricey is gonna stand up. Remember what Biron did to us last year. Don't want to see that again (and that was outshooting them at least 2:1 each game).

Agreed, the guy seems so kind for us to rag on...

We should make fun of a guy like Lucic instead of a class act like Timothy...

Tim Thomas

I'm puzzled as to why Thomas gets bashed around here for having little playoff experience when Price is a 21 year old kid who struggled in the first round and then imploded against the Flyers...

I'll take my 2.10 GAA and .933 sv% thanks.

Tim Thomas is pretty classy. And as for experience, Price has even less so I don't get how this is an argument.

It has a lot to do with how many times Montreal has completely humiliated him.

As opposed to Price's .901 sv% and 2.78 GAA in the playoffs?

Didn't think that one through I guess

No...because the argument is about playoff inexperience and success. Neither goaltender has either.

You guys went into the playoff as Cup favourites and Price came away with awful numbers and a 5-6 playoff record.

The Bruins barely made the playoffs with a banged up roster and Thomas came away with better numbers and a 3-4 playoff record.

You're talking as if we're comparing Patrick Roy to Patrick Lalime. To suggest Price has the edge as a playoff goaltender is absurd.

Oh and as for the age? As irrelevant as you can possibly get. Our future in goal is covered with Tuukka, and we actually made sure he'll be paired with a veteran rather then throw him into a fire that he'll get torched in.

Yeah, I did think it through....I was leaving an opening to see if you were capable of a comeback.

I will take Price's .901 sv% and 2.78 GAA in the playoffs, plus his one series win that Thomas has never had, plus Price's success at every level of hockey, including the international stage.

Price is already more proven than Thomas, at every level. We'll see though, won't we? The next level is the only one that counts. Good luck.

Yeah, ask everybody around HFBoards, the Habs were Cup favorites going into the playoffs, lots of experts and NHL fans thought that, everybody agreed their 1st place finish in the conference was indicative of that.

That's digging deep man, real desperate there, nobody respected the Habs last year. I've been a fan for 20 years and sure thought they were cup favorites.

Oh yeah, and because of where I am posting,

You finish first...and your considered Cup favourites. Anything less then the Conference Finals should be considered a HUGE fail. Same goes for us this season
