I clipped your post down to the above, because I agree Mason's biggest problem was mental. Rinne, on the other hand, seems to be the polar opposite. He's steady, even keeled and that reflects on the ice with his calm play, focus, and ability to keep one bad play/unlucky bounce from getting into his head and spiraling out of control. Although according to his teammates he's as competitive as hell, he's competitive in a good way and not flaky like the nut jobs that used to dominate the ranks of NHL goaltending in the past. His mental toughness, at least in my opinion, is more important to his and this team's success than his size, glove or physical skills. As far as his wanting to sign and stay with the Preds for a reasonable amount, I believe he will and that Poile should make every effort to do so. From where I sit, he seems to really enjoy the Preds organization and he knows that Korn is very much a key to his success to date and would want to maintain that relationship.

So much for this being Weber Arbitration talk....

Anyways, Im not worried about Webs. None of the big 4 RFAs (Weber, Doughty, Stamkos, Parise) are signed yet. It'll happen eventually.

In an indirect way, this was kind of my point - there was a suggestion that Rinne might take a Mason-style fall, and I was trying to explain why this wasn't likely as Mason didn't fall due to some sort of "hidden technique weakness".

Last thing on Rinne but his weakness is corner top shelf. Has been for a while.

As far as Weber goes, not to concerned about the change in agents and the arbitration. Looks like they're figuring it out and will in plenty of time.

Top corners are every goalies weakness, it's also the smallest, highest part of the net.

I was actually going to say that, triggr. That's what makes a good sniper a good sniper, the ability to pick those top corners. They are as difficult to cover as they are to sneak a puck in. A goalie is better off making sure the rest of the net is covered, because most players will knock that shot off of the pipe. If Rinne has a weakness that can be exploited it would have been figured out by now. Unless he pulls a Luongo and changes his style I don't think we have much to worry about with him.

Nothing really new on the Weber front. He spoke with Cooper earlier, but all he said was that he thinks that "it" will take care of itself.

Rinne's weakness is he gets out of his crease at times due to this aggressive play. Otherwise, he is easily the most talented goalie we have ever had, and quite clearly, he is in the top 5 of all goaltenders in the league. We locked up Tomas Vokoun longterm. Rinne is better, bigger, more consistent, and he is younger. Give him the contract.
