Kind of unfair considering Harding was diagnosed with MS a couple weeks ago, but would have been Thomas/Rask regardless

Yeah same here. I'd go with Thomas/Rask.

I do like Backstrom, and Harding though.

Considering Thomas isn't playing (or wouldn't be), I'll take the pair that has a legitimate starter for 12/13.

Backstrom and Rask are both legitimate starters...

I would say Thomas/Rask if Thomas didnt take a break. But, since they are the only ones both playing, Backstrom/Harding

Rask hasn't played a full season as a starter.

You're just pulling that out of your ***. Harding is a fighter, he'll play through this as long as he can. It probably won't even affect his game for at least a couple years anyway.

I go with Backstrom/Harding simply because Thomas isn't playing, and shouldn't be considered a starter because of that. It should be Rask/Khudobin not Thomas/Rask.

Technically no one's really playing right now. Who knows Thomas could decide he wants to play if this thing gets resolved? I highly doubt it, and yes I agree about Harding. He has said he would like to continue to play, and I've always liked him so I'll be rooting for him. Parise hate aside.

Wouldn't mind Backstrom as a stop gap starter in 2014 for the Devils if Marty retires, and Minnesota decides to move on without him.

Which duo would I rather have? Thomas/Rask.

Which duo would I probably have at the start of the season? Backstrom/Harding.

One is the answer to the poll, the other is speculation.
