Ever since about 2007, Tim Thomas has been my favorite non-Canuck in the NHL. Saves like the above are one of the main reasons. This save has everyone talking, and rightfully so, as it should currently stand as the save of the year and it will be difficult to out-do. I'm also a big fan of his story, as he toured the AHL, IHL, and Europe before making his first NHL start at the age of 28. He does yoga to improve his flexibility and balance. He once punched Sean Avery in the face after an unnecessary cheapshot. I'm a fan.
Seriously, I love the guy. He's an oddball with an extremely unorthodox goaltending style who continually faces adversity and makes adversity blink. And he just made the save of the year. Respect.
