I'd take Rask.
I'd take Rask as well. I think I'm just letting my inherent distrust of goalies taint my judgement. I mean goalies who have been good from the beginning to the end of their careers are rare, now there really is only a few that have been consistently great King Henrik, Rinne, Brodeur, Miller.

I'd much rather see us get forward and D talent for nash than a goaltender+ The valuation of goalies is so complicated that its easy to get the wrong end of the bargain.
