Would be interesting to see what kind of numbers Rask would put up playing with our crappy defense in front of him instead of one of the best defenses in the league.

Think I chose Rask a little too quickly on this one. I admit I have a bit of a man crush on the guy ever since I saw him play the Wild a few years ago at the X. I'm still gonna go with Rask, but it's closer than a lot of people want to believe. There is no goaltender in the game better positionally than Backstrom, and I'm serious about that. It's the rebounds and the cross creasers that put Backstrom into big time trouble. If he's out of position, he's screwed. He doesn't have the quickness of goalies like Rask to recover as easily.
