Not buying the Thomas hype

Louis Lebel, Carp, Ont.

There's been a lot of articles over the past couple of years talking about how under-appreciated Tim Thomas is.

I actually think he's la little overrated.

You often see him make amazing diving saves that seem impossible to make, but it looks to me as though he makes those saves because he is always out of position.

You barely ever see a good technical goalie like Cam Ward make desperation saves because he is usually square to the shooter.

That, to me, is good goaltending.
