A great article from The Goalie Guild talking with Mitch Korn about the contract, it's effect potentially on the rest of the goalies in Nashville, and a variety of other things. Definitely worth a few minutes to read...

I particularly thought this exchange was interesting in that it shows the dynamic of the team behind the scenes and how much of a leader and compassionate friend Pekka really is. We know he is incredibly focused and intense on the ice, but he never loses sight of the big picture...

JG: So is that something you even discuss with him at all? Or do you feel he’s mature enough to handle everything himself?

MK: “We’ve talked about a variety of things the last couple of days. But the kind of guy that he is, and the kind of person he is, the biggest concern he had was Anders Lindback, and what impact the deal might have on Anders mentally. Now it [Rinne’s contract] appears there’s a roadblock for him [Lindback] long-term in Nashville.”

JG: Does that really change anything, though? I mean, you still get to develop Lindback as a prospect, even if he doesn’t play in many games.

MK: “No, it doesn’t. But when this type of thing occurs, you have to remember that nothing happens in a vacuum. So for every action, there is a reaction. And the initial reaction – and I would imagine you’d have to speak with Lindback about this directly – but the initial reaction that one would think he would have, would be there’s a bigger roadblock for him now. So one of the first things that Pekka did, right when the deal was done, was call Lindy.”

JG: Wow, that’s really cool Rinne did that.

MK: “Yeah, he didn’t want Lindy to read it in the paper, or hear it from somebody else, or through the grapevine. Pekka wanted to make sure he talked to him directly, because they have a real good relationship, and that was awesome.”
