#2249316 Thomas on the way out for Boston Bruins?

Posted by jfranzen on 25 January 2012 - 02:45 PM

Are you crazy? Look at his numbers, they guy is dynamite.


Rask has played 13 Playoff games with a SV% of .912 and a 2.61 GAA

Looking at recent Cup winners' playoff stats:

2008 Osgood SV% of .930 and a 1.55 GAA over 1100 minutes played
2009 Fleury SV% of .908 and a .261 GAA over 1400 minutes played
2010 Niemi SV% of .910 and a 2.63 GAA over 1300 minutes played
2011 Thomas SV% of .935 and a 1.98 GAA over 1400 minutes played


Looking at Rask's playoff stats: SV% of .912 and a 2.61 GAA just over 800 minutes played

I'm not saying he isn't good, but he's not time tested like the previous examples. He'll be ok, but I think they'd get bumped out in the second round.<br><br>Edited for stat correctness.<br>

I couldn't find the article at the Boston Globe. But they summed it up okay in the article I've linked. This may be an interesting time for the Bruins, I don't think Rask has what it takes to take them far into the playoffs. Something interesting to keep an eye on.

#2245210 The ONE thing I can't stand about Wings games on FSD.....

Posted by jfranzen on 13 January 2012 - 10:45 AM

And then one day, you find yourself living a thousand miles away from where you grew up and wishing that there was a Belle Tire down here because none of the local tire stores come close to the same price/service standards. I find myself digging most of the FSD commercials out of childhood nostalgia and wishing they'd bring back the Kowalski Kowality Moment.


This. I grew up around Detroit and moved after I graduated high school. The local adverts make it feel a little more like home, with the exception that I'll never get to go see the Wings' public outings. :(

Crosby used to be a hockey player...then he took a shoulder to the head.

Wings have been on a hot scoring streak, but I think the key to winning this game will be smart defensive plays, aggressive back-check and staying out of the penalty box. You can do iiiiit!
