In response to dezaruchi's comment:
Tim Thomas feels like he's still got a real shot at making the U.S. squad for the Olympics. As unlikely as that seemed a month ago, it seems like he does indeed, still have a real chance. I really hope he makes it. I'm a Canadian so that would mean the U.S. goaltending isn't as strong as people thought it would be. BTW, Rask is the best in the league now.
Nice to see a fellow Dead fan on the boards. For the record, I didn't lift your avatar like I am being accused of. I own a homemade t-shirt with your logo, one for the Sox and a long sleeved navy blue one for the Pats, which is the logo I have.
NAS and some others have been claiming I was copying you and I wasn't. These steal your face logo sports logos are all over the web and have been for years.
I was recently banned again for no reason and went back to a Dead based or music based board name.
You should head over to the music forum. A few Dead fans are over there.
Not to hijack your thread, but any favorite albums, eras or shows? I am not old enough to have been on the forefront, middle or even end of it all, but I've been impressed with the spawn bands that still tour and even Dark Star that does a great, great job as a cover band.
Anyway, Thomas's ego got out of control and it started when the team didn't back him for his desire to not attend the WHite House visit. It happens, but he's done.
What's funny is, I remember getting into a debate with a Sabres fan for the last Olympics saying Thomas should be the guy over Ryan MIller. I was right. Miller let in the awful goal from a poor angle to Crosby and I think Thomas would have been a much better choice since he was ascending as the best goalie at the time. Awful decision to go with Miller over Thomas then, which was proven by Thomas in the 2011 Cup run.
But, now? No way. He's making a fool of himself. Would not be shocked if Florida releases him before the year ends.
Unreal. Becuase of the Crosby goal Miller was the wrong choice? Are you kidding me? Ryan Miller was the best player in that tournament, bar none. Thomas was not at his 2011 level at the time, and U.S.A wasnt even expected to medal. Nobody, nobody suggested Thomas should start over Miller at the time. You are unreal.
