Tim Thomas

I already had a tremendous amount of respect for Tim Thomas, but I just looked at his career stats, and I have even more.

Here's where Thomas played (in order, some teams more than once) after the University of Vermont:
--Birmingham Bulls (ECHL)
--Houston Aeros (IHL)
--HIFK Helsinki (Finland)
--Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL)
--HIFK Helsinki (Finland)
--Detroit Vipers (IHL)
--AIK Solna (Sweden)
--Karpat Oulu (Finland)
--Providence Bruins (AHL)
--Jokerit Helsinki (Finland)
--Providence Bruins (AHL)

Nine years in the minors. Eleven different teams. Four different countries.

I think almost anyone, at some point, would have given up. Somehow, though, he persevered.
