Tukka Rask to Ottawa?

What would B's fans want from Ottawa for Rask? What if the Sens sent back Elliot to start....since doubt the B's want to take on Leclaires cap. Elliott + Foligno +....

It'd take Elliott and Karlsson for me to even consider trading him in the Division. Even then... I don't know...

Probably Karlsson+ or Runblad/Cowen++ (though I believe Boston needs a PMD and not a shut down D man... don't hold me to that though).

Slightly cheaper option and pretty good would be Schneider. That said, is goaltending really an issue an the moment?

For us to get over the top, we'll eventually need one.

However, unless Tuuka Rask can score, we have way more pressing issues.

Why? Goaltending isn't much of an issue. Giving up our most valuable pieces would be ********.

The last thing the sens need right now is a new goaltender. What they need is new leadership.

Yes I agree, but we're nowhere close to over the top these days. There's a substantial amount of work that needs to be done with the team and I can't really see the quick fix turning us into a cup contender. Another goalie prospect/a young goalie to complement Lehner would be wonderful but not at the cost of our future defensive core. Just my take though.

Well as of now Tim Thomas is on pace for 7 points, so maybe he can help

But yes, for Boston to trade someone as young and talented as Rask to a division team, you're looking at Karlsson+... Which seems pretty counter productive for Ottawa.

Different situations. Montreal had two young good starting goalies and chose one over the other. Boston has an aging vet who's only got a couple years left, and the future starter for the franchise.

There's no need or want to move Tuukka to divisional rival. It would cost Karlsson+.

Please don't compare the two.

Goaltending is the least of our problems, we need players that can play a full 60 minutes and score.

This.

There would need to be overpayment to get Rask out of Boston, and this would suffice.

I guess you're entitled to your opinion, but I'd rather have a stud goalie than a stud D man. Good goalies steal games.

Halak > Rask. Even in this situation, that may be what you ask but you're not going to get that type of package for any goalie in the league.

Rask is our future starter when Thomas retired and considerin ghow we have 0 goaltending depth in our system therefor a young potentially franchise starter >> than a PMD to the Bruins.

Keep in mind when trades are made its not just the players value you have to keep in mind, it's the players value + the teams needs and values.

I guess I strongly agree with the bolded text. a top 3 goal scoring Winger should be the 1st problem to solve in OTT. Schneider would be an interesting pkup yes

EDIT: Second problem to fix in OTT... FIRE B. Murray for F-Sakes!!!!

Halak>Rask has nothing to do with it.

Montreal had Halak (age 25) and Price (age 23). Boston has Thomas (age 36) and Rask (age 23).

Montreal made a choice of who will be their starter for the next 4-5 years and sold the other one for two decent prospects. Boston has a goalie that will be here 2 more years and then besides Rask have nothing in the system to replace either of them. Rask is invaluable to the Bruins. The two situations are extremely different. Please don't confuse Montreal's needs and Bostons needs.

Rask and Karlsson have both performed well in their short careers the talent is nearly a wash, but one team is giving up a valued commodity that they have no replacement for, the other team is giving up not only something they have plenty of in their system but they're trying to pry a young highly valued player from the other team. Hence Karlsson for Rask = fair; Karlsson + for Rask = what it would take for Boston to consider it.
