So many juicy rebounds by Rask and no one close enough to capitalize. This could go on for a while.

He's really good at poke checking, deflecting and blocking shots.

Watching the finals like being in a strip club ... everywhere you look there's someone you'd like to have.

What about Toews having his stick shattered by Seidenberg on that last rush?

In both cases, all it takes is having a little bit more money to offer than the guy sitting next to you.

Bruins fans are due to have their heart broken in OT.

Also reminds me of how far away we are. We're not that far, yet we are...if that makes any sense.

But then, a Hawks player CLEARLY tripping a Bruins near Rask net. I mean, penalties will be delay of game (puck over glass), too many men (check) or awful tripping with a definite chance to score.

I feel that Thomas was faster in his net than Crawford is. So a routine save gone wrong has more chance to be saved by a faster goalie than a slower one.

But then, Thomas was also seen as an up and down goalie. Not sure people even despite his cup, would see him as a relatively safe goalie.

People didn't even view Hasek as a safe goalie in his prime.

I remember Luongo's 'famous last words' on Thomas:

Well at one point, when you prove that you were unsafely good...you just have to accept it. Crawford is obviously not there yet.
