It'd be interesting to read the threads during a season without the two of them......

Over/under: A year and half before Seguin/Bergeron's heads are being called for?
That's the other hilarious bit. "Let's get rid of Rask!" (See: "Let's get rid of Thomas!")

"He hasn't proven he can steal a game." "He isn't a proven playoff goaltender."

Regarding the former, there have been several -- several -- games during the past month and a half the Bruins would have lost were it not for Rask's excellent goaltending.

As to the latter, no one can say they're a proven playoff goaltender until they... prove it. Funny how that works. Rask has had precisely one playoff run as the #1 behind him. It's true he faded during that run. It's also true that the team in front of him faded, if you recall, in historic fashion.

Said again relative to Claude Julien: Look at the Bruins record the five years prior to his arrival, and the five years plus thereafter.

Those who want to blow everything up when things get rough are the same types who plan the parade route in October.

Over & out.
