When asked to comment on his first start in Boston since his puzzling departure, Tim Thomas had this to say...

 

"I'm really just focused on getting ready for tomorrow's game," he said. "You know me, I don't try to overblow things."

 

Ha.  I sure hope that was Timbo being cheeky, because if he really feels that way he's delusional...er...more so than usual.

Well, when you overblow things people tend to get hurt. Then you have a whole team of guys out with groin injuries, and you fall out of playoff contention. Then you have too much time on your hands, and end up getting into weird hobbies like collecting American Girls dolls. Then you start going to American Girl doll conventions and everyone thinks you're a pervert.

Just sayin'.

Still don't see what makes him a dope but regardless the guy is a scrapper and still is a great goalie... I wouldn't mind at all if they did not resign The Monster and did sign Timmy the Tank on a one year. Thomas can still be a #1 goalie and he'd challenge Howard every step of the way. A Howard-Thomas tandem would be wicked! Like Fuhr-Moog or Hasek-Osgood

It's even a bigger shame that Timmy , Niemi and Crawford seem to look like Brodeur/Roy in their primes on super serum against us.

Sure, but you're talking about a different kind of "nuts".  And really, when you boil it down it's all shades of gray anyway.  Both Tim Thomas and Ilya Bryzgalov are absolutely, positively, 100% wackadoodle.

One of my favourite goaltenders of alltime for a number of reasons. His stanley cup performance against the Canucks was out of this world, the guy literally shut down the best offense in the league (at that time), which for sure isn ot easy to do.

 

Another cool thing is, his style can't be copied it's unique at so many levels and yet hard to beat, reminds me a bit of Hasek.

I find it amusing that a Conn Smythe winning Stanely Cup goaltender could mismanage his career to such a degree that he now makes half as much money playing on the worst team of the last ten or fifteen years.


Most people wish they could 'mismanage' their career's to the tune of $20 million plus.

Perhaps he's playing hockey because he wants to, not because he's contractually obliged to. Just for fun ... it's possible. He shouldn't need money.

He won the Conn Smythe at 37. Honestly, what else is left to play for?

The team he's currently playing for isn't even the worst team in the NHL this season, let alone the 'last ten or fifteen years'.

"At that time I really wasn't thinking about money," he said. "I was doing what I thought was the best thing for my family and for myself, and ultimately it was. Not only did the year off give me a renewed life for hockey, just being at home and being a parent to my kids and developing a relationship with my children is much greater and stronger now than it was before that year off.

"I mean, I had a good relationship, don't get me wrong. I was a dad, but when you're constantly on the road and so focused, I hadn't developed [that relationship] yet and they were at critical ages. My son was just turning 7 and my daughter was 8 and those are critical ages, I think, to really develop a relationship with your kids before they get too old. That ended up happening over the year off, so that was one of the great benefits."

Good for him. Doesn't sound like a "dope" at all.
