Thomas to be paid same salary as Brodeur

Big news for Bruins fans – and any team looking for a premiere goaltender this summer. According to ESPN’s John Buccigross Thomas and the Bruins have agreed to an extension. The agreement is expected to be announced on Saturday.

Thomas was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after this season. Terms of the deal were unavailable; however, according to sources for the Boston Globe, the deal will pay the 34-year-old backstop approximately the $5.2 million-per-year earned by New Jersey’s Martin Brodeur, age 36, who last month became the game’s all-time winningest goalie.

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.
