Tim Thomas has been enjoying Friends, Family and Faith; Rask is armed with a single-season RFA ‘prove it’ contract and he’s ready to seize No. 1 role.

Nice.

Seguin's at 21 on the forwards list (one spot behind Kessel). I could see him finishing in the top-ten for scoring this year.

Goalie, no. Fantasy goalie, probably. The team and system in front of him means he'll have a low GAA, high SV% and a bunch of wins.

On a similar note, there's no way that Letang, Byfuglien and Karlsson are better than Chara at actual hockey, but they are at fantasy hockey.

For fantasy purposes Rask at #2 isn't too much of a surprise. Bruins will play tough D and he has a lot to prove/earn this year.

Wasnt he number 2 in the league back in 2010? Or close to it? I think everyone just remembers that run he had and expects the same thing.

They are skill wise as in skating,moving puck but Chara better at parts the game like checking,rubbing guy out,blocking shots ,getting pucks out and being a leader,O and Chara shoots harder,

Number 1 I think, but he didn't play enough games to get Vezina consideration (and then he outplayed the Vezina winner in Rd1).

That's right. I remember now. That series was incredible. I can't see why Rask can't put up similar numbers again. He's got the tools for it.

The most ridiculous part of that goalie list is Pavelec being at 31.

From a fantasy perspective? Seems pretty accurate to me. He's going to play an insane number of games and all of his 'averaged' statistics are going to be well below the league-wide mean.

He's a good goalie playing for a bad team.

He'll probably get lit up. Rask has the best defensive defenseman, the Selke-winner, and a defensive system to play behind, which is probably why he's 2. We all know why Lundqvist is #1...
