Ok so it wasn't the Wings, but we got treated to some fantastic goaltending by Tim Thomas. As a hockey fan, it was a joy watching him in the finals. As a Michigan native, also from the Flint area, I can't help but have a special appreciation for this guy. And he'll cap it off next week with a well deserved Vezina. :thumbup:

Where did this guy come from? Totally off the radar until a few years ago. As dominate as Roy and Hasek were in their day. Let's hope he can put a few more years in and collect some more hardware.

No kidding, talk about a late bloomer. But he's awesome and dominant and I don't know anyone who dislikes the guy.

His stats for the playofs are u-n-r-e-a-l. He deserves all the praise, and definately the Conn Smythe. Well done Timmy :thumbup:

Honestly, I could only be happier if he won it for the Wings. Great finals, great guy.

Not like those Vancouver fans... morons rioting now and throwing things.

This whole series was about the classier people getting rewarded, and that is what I love in sports.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I would expect that he'll bring his 3 trophies to show off at an event at Perani Arena in Flint. Bob Perani got him started in the game, and I believe they are still close, today. The place will have more than enough room for all the people to come out and shower Timmy with praise and try to convince him to come and play for The Wings. ;)


I'll post something as soon as I hear it, as I'm in the Flint area, and read The Journal everyday for my newspaper. I'm betting he will be on todays cover page. :thumbup:

One of the better playoff performances I've seen in a long long time. Atta boy Timmy!

I agree that he was insane all year, but I wasn't really impressed with the B's throughout the season. Even in the playoffs I often thought they looked beatable, but Timmy was the X factor. Either way, insane year, insane playoffs, and all with a chuckle and a good smile on his face. Seems like a guy that really enjoys where he's at right now.

Since it wasn't the Wings' year, I'm stoked to see the Cup go to an Original 6 team, and the MVP to a Michigan boy. This is just about the second best outcome I could've hoped for. Congrats, Mr. Thomas.

I don't really like either team all that much but I am really happy that he won. He's an amazing goalie and totally deserved it. Congrats to him! :clap:

I am not a Bruins fan nor am I a Canuck fan but I do like Tim Thomas (and that is awesome he's from Michigan). Congrats to him on winning the Stanley Cup and the Conns Smythe, he deserved it. His playoff run was crazy and his stats are unbelievable!
