I'm convinced that the future doesn't look all that bright for Toronto. its D is overrated. an above average goalie will knock off 1/2 to 1 goal a game. so yeah, they need some big help.
By the way, Steve Simmonds basically shares my sentiments that i posted earlier today about Luongo (who Leaf fans, not me, want) and he gives his take on Thomas.

so why don't you share what you think Thomas's value is? 1 year left. he's a rental goalie that declined in the last 1/3 of this season.
I understand where you're coming from, but Thomas probably won't help Reimer. Of course Thomas will teH him little things about the pressure, but he won't teach reimer how to play his (Reimer) style. Thomas plays a stupid style, and well, Reimer doesn't. If your going to get a veteran to help the young guy, then Get a veteran that has played reimers style and has done well playing that style.
i think "help" means that TT will split games like he did with Rask this year. put TT in net for 50 games and let Reimer play 34. That's how he'll learn.
and if Reimer outplays TT, then you bench TT and you don't care. he's gone at the end of the year.
