Rask let in 22 in the Flyers series. Thomas let in zero because he didn't play, despite a huge salary.

Your point?

So what you're really saying is that Anderson would have seen one second of ice time after pre-game warm ups if he were on the same team as Rask? That seems to be what you're saying. We all know Anderson would have also have had a big fat zero GP behind Rask.

Let me ask you this: why did you go after the Bruins fan who referred to Thomas' Vezina, saying that Thomas has one good year (not true by the way), but didn't rebut the Avs fan who sadi that Anderson has been good for must of his career. I don't think that's true either - He's been a career AHL/NHL fringe guy (averaging less than 15 GP since his first NHL season in 02-03, with one good year last year). Anderson had a career year last year, and Thomas had a bit of a down year, but yet their stats (which you seems to think are the be-all end all) are close. You may be engaging in hyperbole for this thread, but live by the sword, die by the sword... I've seen enough to know that Thomas is a better goalie that Anderson.

That being said, There's no reason for the Avs to make this trade. No one thought this was a good trade proposal besides one Bruins fan (OP) and one Avs fan (who said Mueller would have to be removed from the deal). Even if Anderson isn't quite as good a goalie as Thomas, he's still a viable #1 in the NHL, and I don't think the Avs need to bring in Thomas, especially at the expense of losing Mueller, who seems to have nice upside.

but i like Duchene a lot and think soon he will be a number one center and maybe a ppg player. my point was never to argue about duchene.

my point was to stick up for thomas because some morons were saying he sucks because he got beat out by rask, which is absurd.

i know you guys would never take thomas for anderson in a million years because of contracts and age, i never said you would or should. it is simply my opinion that money and age aside he is a better goalie. again my opinion, your not gona change it and im not gona change yours.

so there really is no point to continue.
Thats fair. Just FYI, I don't actually think Duchene should be put as a number 1 center of the Bruins as an 18 year old. Just making the point Boston plays a defensive system that makes their goalie look good (and forwards produce less) while Colorado does not. And this is not even mentioning the fact that the Avs didn't have anyone near the caliber of Chara to help Anderson. He was our MVP and carried the team all season, and we do take offense that anyone would think their backup is better than our MVP. Especially since the Bruins weren't better than the Avs last season.

Well lucky for you, Thomas is all yours and probably will remain that way until the end of his NMC deal.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't he have surgery last year as well?

Rask was good for three months, Anderson was good all year - as evidenced by the fact he led the NHL in saves. He also had a 51 save shutout in the playoffs. Something tells me he wouldn't be warming the bench.

Anderson: 38-25-7
Thomas: 17-18-8

Those aren't close. You were likely referring to GAA and SV%, in which case I point out that Colorado gave up significantly more shots than Boston (6th most in the league), and Anderson started 71 games (as evidenced by his high GAA). No one is buying that Thomas is better than Anderson; the Bruins were a power house last year, and the second they fell back to earth so did Tim Thomas. I'll at least listen to a claim that they're around the same level, but the bold statements in this thread about Thomas being better (all coming from Bruin fans, mind you) are simply laughable.

that is debatable, but since the Bruins played like such **** last year even i could hardly watch i wont.

but yea i understand why you all love anderson, and i do know that we play a defensive system which helps the goalies, but i don't think it can turn a bad goalie good or great (just ask manny fernandez) it helps a goalie no doubt but both thomas and rask are good goalies imo.

just want to state again that i thought this trade was bad for the Av's from the start and would not expect you guys to ever do this.
