I realize he played poorly when PRO lost to Portland in the playoffs, but what was that, 08-09, or 4 years ago when he was 21?? There are very, very few goalies that are consistent at that age, and that PRO team did not give up many shots, which I believe was actually a detriment for Rask.
He's at his best when he's seeing a decent amount of shots and into the game. My personal opinion is that it's much harder for a young goalie to function as a backup and work every 4 games, than it is to be the #1.This is why I have believed for the last couple of years that Rask would have no problem taking the #1 role over from TT when the time came.
I think 5 mil is fair, but I'm hoping for 4.75 per.
Agreed. He is easily worth 5 but I hope for less. If we get knocked out in the play-offs this year id be willing to bet Rask would be the least of the reasons.
