Boston Bruins Thrilled: Tim Thomas Is Once Again Proving Critics Wrong

Jason GendronContributor IJune 26, 2016

After a 28-win season, where he made the All-Star Game, Tim Thomas is once again having to prove critics wrong. And he's doing a great job of it. Voters again decided to leave the 34 year-old Thomas off of this season's All-Star Ballot, despite a great start to the 2008-2009 campaign.

How did he respond? He is currently the NHL's best overall goaltender with an 8-2-3 record, a sparkling .944 save percentage, and an equally great 1.80 GAA. So why, I ask you does Thomas get left out of the picture year after year?

We all know he doesn't mind, and he's just "happy to be here," as he keeps saying, and he has historically played better when under the radar. So maybe he's better off just playing his game, and putting up Vezina Trophy quality numbers while nobody pays attention.

Us Bruins fans know exactly what Tim Thomas is capable of.
