    I'd imagine there are many other goaltenders in the league who wish they were as "overrated" as he is.

    Yep.  So totally overrated.  I mean come on, he has the best save pct in the history of the NHL.  Chiarelli should dump him while his value is high.

    NHL Record for Save % in a season.  I guess he is over-rated in the same way as Wayne Gretzky for those 92 goals.

    [QUOTE]Get real people, albatross contract, mediocre goalie, flopping around like a fsh out of water. Thomas has been back down on Earth for a while. What I think the Bruins organization should do- Place Thomas on injured reserve and call up Khodobin. Dont play TT the rest of the year in order to keep hs value high.

    Dumbest troll EVER!

    To use a NAS mindset: stats aren't everything haha
    Great year for Thomas. Glad it happened to such a great guy.

    It's true that stats aren't everything, just as it's true that the best answer Thomas could give his doubters is "Scoreboard". 

    But the more I think about this, the more it comes down to the OP not understanding the meaning of over-rated.  In general, it means to assign a paper value that is out of line with his performance or real value.  Performance is .938 save %, best GAA in the league by more than a 10th of a point, and second in shutouts (and wasn't that a beaut of a Hnidy pass that led to him losing this one).  Spin it up down left right back forward whatever.  Hard to overrate a guy when he puts up that performance.  You could do it, but you'd never get to being the epitome.

    Now Joe Thornton?  Epitome of overrated.

    That Hnidy pass was dreadful.  Totally what happens when you don't play hockey for a year.  And it's impossible to have statistically the best numbers in history and not be, at least, a very good goaltender.

    I never understood the premise of this post - I'll stick to the official score sheet, thank you.

    There's plenty of them here. Sad thing is most of them are all together as a clan, the same person with numerous alias's & Hab fans.

    .938 save percentage, a new NHL record, eclipsing Dominik Hasek's standard of .937 set in 1998-99 - if anything, Tim Thomas is underrated because of "stylists" like "T!TSareOverrated" & "BotoxFanInIL". TT's career save percentage in the NHL is .922 (playoffs .926), but that's just the stats; every non-biased (or non-obsessed?) hockey fan knows that without Tim Thomas' superb season, the Bruins wouldn't have won the Northeast division.
