    [QUOTE]   Let me explain something to you because you might be too young to understand that hockey is a business.  TT makes more than 5 million a year.  Who gave him that much money...Chiarelli.  Who is Chiarelli... yeah it is Julien's boss.  The same guy who extended Julien's contract for 3 years.  As soon as Rask failed to deliver in the beginning of the year they went back with Thomas.  And everytime Thomas was bad they play Rask but still cameback with Thomas.  Why...because Julien will not make is GM look bad.  No way in Hell that if Rask would have been cold that long during the regular season that he would have kept his number 1 job last year.     They might fool the regular fan who does not understand the nature of the sport but they will not fool me with that!!

    Hockey is a business. This is true. And any owner who tells you that he's not looking to reap maximum profit is yanking your chain.

    Thomas has a $5 million cap hit this year, and is the best regular season goaltender (except Rinne obviously. He should have been the undisputed, consensus Vezina winner this year. It's too bad all the voters have a bias against technically sound goaltending and prefer Thomas's bellyflop style).

    Thomas just doesn't bring it in the postseason though, as evidenced by games 1 and 2 of the MTL series, and games 1 and 2 of this series. Nevermind the other games. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut 10 out of 14 attempts, right? There's no way to justify having the 10th largest salary cap hit of all goaltenders on your team (source: http://www.nhlnumbers.com/players?position=Goaltender&sort=&year=2011)

     

    But more importantly, of the four teams left, Thomas is the second highest paid goaltender after Luongo. And really, wouldn't we all rather have Luongo (http://www.hockey-reference.com/boxscores/201104190CHI.html) in net?

    Luongo: Save percent 0.917, GAA 2.28

    Thomas: Save percent 0.932, GAA 2.23


    Source: http://www.hockey-reference.com/

     

    Notes:

    Yes, Patrick Roy only made $4.567 million the season after winning the Stanley Cup. But gasoline was also $1/gallon back then.

    And yes, sarcasm is strong with this one :p

    I guess we don't. I usually prefer facts with citation so that everyone can do their own research. But I guess hearsay was also popular once. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salem_witch_trials

    If the Bruins win the Cup this year, Lucaoasz' first post will be:

    Thomas barely got that cup over his head. Did you see how low it was? His arms were all shakey and stuff, he easily could have dropped and dented it. His cup holding skills are even worse than his goaltending, if thats possible. What a loser!  So glad he is gone next year, cause I know for a fact Cam Neely hates his guts.

    Rarely is a Stanley Cup won by one guy.  I will, grudginly (sp), agree that Roy and a couple others have.  Even Orr had help, so did the Great One and Mario.  

    The B's have a great blend of being able to turn up the scoring and have the luxury of a stellar goalie in Thomas.  Thomas' superior goaltending has clearly been the difference in the Philly series and so far with Tampa.   Rolaston has looked like the journeyman he is and Thomas won game 3, and probably game 2 despite giving up a softie. 

    Bruins in 6, with Thomas stone walling in another!!!

    Let's Go B's!!!

    Calling people "peeps" is for the Celtics forum. Are you wearing your hoodie right now?
    Saying a Habs fan is worse than a troll is an insult to Kennedy who brings much more to this forum than you ever will. TT lover?? Guilty. Awesome goalie on my home team.Fun goalie to watch and root for, you should try it sometime.  Yep, thats me. bruins lover? got me again. If your such a TT hater and Tuuka lover, purchase a ticket behind the bench and stare at him all game. Nobody will notice since you'll be indoors with your sunglasses/hoodie on.Your peeps will never know it's you.  (No disprespect to Tuuka)

    So reply to my post where I detail the flaws in the arguments you've presented.  Right now, it looks like you're ignoring it because you have no answer.  Let me add to it: your little chain of command argument is a perfect example of false logic much like the terrific South Park Johnny Cochrane "If Chewbacca does not live with the Ewoks on Endor, you must acquit!" rant.  Basically, you're saying that Chiarelli tells Julien to play Thomas so he doesn't look foolish for signing him to a big contract?  And the evidence for the key piece of this - that Thomas is only playing because of his contract - is that Chiarelli is Julien's boss?  Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Chiarelli also sign Rask?  Didn't he sign all of the players?  So...wouldn't he want the guys who will bring in maximum playoff revenue to play?

    That's the other part that amuses me: hockey is a business.  This little truism then is used to support an argument that has nothing to do with business and everythint to do with a guy wanting to protect his rep.  Problems with that argument abound, but start with the idea that if Chiarelli's motivation is that he doesn't want to look like he made a bad decision on the Thomas signing, and Thomas is a bad goaltender, wouldn't playing him show everyone he wasn't worth the money?  Since that hasn't happened, and he had one of the all-time best statistical seasons (regular - the season you get paid for), and has now assured the Bruins of no fewer than 11 home playoff gates generating millions in profits, it sure looks like a pretty smart business decision if you want to look at through that lens.

    Stop.  Think.  I can do this all day.

    Let me be a smart @ss too.  No one is talking because they know I was right once again!!  Of course because I am ALWAYS right.  Too bad because all I have asked from TT was to prove me wrong because i want to see a Cup and i can't accept to get that close and see it slip away.... but he just can't.  His style is leading him to failure!!
