I would because that would likely mean that Finley bombed out. As nice as Rinne could be for us, I don't think management expects him to be our 'starter of the future' and they certainly don't expect as much out of him going forward as they think Finley 'might' give us. Having him surpass Finley means that Finley has not made the necessary progress and is likely out as a potential candidate to replace Vokoun in the future.
