Bruins suddenly flush with talented goalies

Last May, the Bruins’ two-time Vezina Trophy winner had informed his employer he did not intend to play in 2012-13. Their backup goalie’s contract was set to expire in less than two months.

Now, Tim Thomas is property of the Islanders. Tuukka Rask is in the running for the Vezina. Anton Khudobin is one of the league’s sharpest No. 2 goalies. Niklas Svedberg, not even Bruins property a year ago, was named the AHL’s top goalie on Thursday. Malcolm Subban, a draft-eligible junior last season, is one of the world’s best 19-year-old puck-stoppers.
