If Tuukka in his prime years can't win a battle with a 39 year old, I'm not sure we should be tying our franchise to him for the next 10 years.
Rask is just entering that prime now though so while I agree in theory, obviously,TT isn't just an average 39 year old.Had we had a full season this year I would speculate that the gap between the two would likely have been closer than in recent years.A shortened season kind of changes the strokes though,doesn't it .With significant rest under his belt one has to assume TT could very well shine and outplay Rask .It certainly would increase the B's chances of a deep playoff run having both those guys in the fold.
