Goalie for the Boston Bruins. As a top prospect, Tim Thomas was drafted 217th overall in the 1994 entry draft by some team that moved to Colorado. After being drafted, he decided to backpack around Europe for 8 years. Upon his return to the states, he promptly joined with the Providence Bruins of the AHL. After 3 seasons with them, he finally got a job with the Boston Bruins. For 2 seasons he sucked and was outplayed by such stars as Alex Auld and Joey MacDonald. However, he soon found his stride behind a the defensive system of coach Claude Julien. Kicked ass for 2 years, then sucked again and lost the starting job to Tuukka Rask aka Tuukk Nuukkem.
Who was that one goalie that won the Vezina and then lost his starting job the next season? No, not Jim Carey, it was Tim Thomas (the white one that plays hockey).
Tim Thomas (the white one that plays hockey) and Chris Osgood could totally be brothers.
