I’m starting to drink the Mike Felger juice, Tuukka time baby! I’m really starting to like this kid, and I’ve been hesitant to anoint him the goalie of the future just because of Andrew Raycroft and Hannu Toivonen, but this kid has been spectacular.
I really think the previous two disasters have helped the B’s with Rask. He has been developing steadily since coming to North America and hasn’t been rushed into action.
Statistically, Rask is better than both Razor and Hannu. Hannu had a good start to his rookie season, but ankle injury basically derailed his career. Razor was a flash in the pan, coming out of nowhere to post spectacular numbers on his way to a Calder trophy.
Rask has been touted as one of the best goalies in the world since he was a kid, so he isn’t some random flash in the pan.
Rask seems very confident in net and while I’d like to see more from him, his play right now has to be delightful for B’s fans. Rask is one of the top young up and coming goaltenders in the NHL.
Rask, Steve Mason although he sucked this year, Carey Price, and Marc Andre Fleury.
