Memo to you sir...we did not "run him off". He has made a choice. I'm will to bet when Tuukka goes 2.15, .930 35+ wins you'll be happy.
Krejci going down didn't help their case but the Bruins were still scoring, I think Lucic himself had two goals in game 7. All Tuukka had to do was steal one of those four games but instead he let in soft goal after soft goal and then it was over.
Maybe this choice was his and if it was I think I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, I think he's earned it.
If Tuukka posts those numbers and comes through in the playoffs I will happily eat my words and I'll be routing for him, I just don't want to throw away the proven commodity for someone who hasn't won the number 1 spot. In a perfect world they could stay a tandem but 9 million on goaltending is crazy.
