    Rask Salary

    Howard just signed 6yrs for 5.3m  he has 37, 37 and 35 wins the last 3 years with a 17-12-6 with 3SO and a .920sv%

    Career           127-66-25    14SO  .917   2.39    P/O     13-15  1-SO   .915  2.63

    Rask has        64-43-15     14SO  .927  2.15     P/O        7-6   0-SO  .912   2.61

    Some of Rasks numbers look good but without a 30 win season let alone 3, he has not earned 5m.  3.5M this year was his taste, he has earned it and a raise but not 5m yet.

    TT had a 30, 28 and a 36 win season when he scooped his 6m 6m 5m and 3m contract of which the 3m is owned by Nyi. He also had capped his season at

    36-11-7  5SO   .933  and a 2.10     P/O  7-4  1SO   .935   1.85  with a sweep of the habs.

     

    Rask must win more than 1 series and he has to do it now, he has a plethora of goalies hot on his trail.  His salary should be more like a 3 yr deal  3.5  4  4.5,   3 years a cup and he can name his salary.  PC is playing a waiting game and if Rask pulls a TT he will pay thru the nose now.

    Imagine Chiarelli trying to backload Tuukka's contract with Books idea. EX: 2014 at $4.5M then jumps to $6M for the next 5 years starting in 2015. Now the question is- Will Rask's agent go for it ?

    Once stated then understood, the NHL would call it "circumcision".  Ok I will go along with the tale of JJ is a fool.

    The top 10 goalies in terms of SV% and minutes played similar to Rask, have mean average cap hits of $3.85 million (that's with Howard's new salary assumed).

    That's all PC should pay Rask, until Rask can prove he's a goalie beyond the one that was the Bruins goalie, when the Bruins were the biggest NHL's choke job a few years ago versus the Flyers (Rask being a major reason why).

    I think that Rask comes pretty close , if not , the same contract as Howard...$5M per seems about  right..

    There are two other factors here. one is potential. I think most people think that Rask has a much higher ceiling than howard. The other is free agent status. Rask will be an RFA and Howard would have been a UFA.

    Re: Rask Salary

    Big difference is Det had oodles of money to sign him, they still have 12.5 under cap to round out their roster. Filpula 3M Cleary 2.8M both unsigned UFA's and not going to get much more, Brunner 1.35M might get a bit more, not much yet. Ian White 2.875 might get a boost. They might use the buyout on some deadweight. Point is they had the money.

     

    PC does not have a lot of this money, yes 11M with Sav's money.  But Rask @5M not so much leaves 5.9M, Soda at 1M leaves 4.9M, Backup leaves 3.9 for all of these if at 1M..

    Jagr 4.45           

    Hort 4                

    Fer 2.25

    All gone

    1 more forward required.

    Its not about what he's worth.  Rask's agent is trying to get the best contract, not the fairest contract.  It's about either a) getting him to except a hometown discount, b) paying the fair market value, or c) letting him walk.

    You may think that Rask is worth 3.85, but if another team comes in and offers him 4.15 , you're options are a) convince Rask to take less to stay, b) match the offer, or c) letting him walk.

    Athletes usually take the best offer, not the fairest offer.

    Re: Rask Salary

    It really sucks the cap drops so much next year...

    The only chance PC has is hoping the market dictates that guys like Horton and Jagr yield a significantly less cap hit than the 4-4.5 mil they make now...

    Otherwise, this team might be down a couple wingers next year...

    This is a good pt.  The cap has dropped enough where it should affect the mean salaries for players by tier/position/style (e.g. the going rate for a solid checking third line wing is now x , down from x+15%, the going rate for an offensive line 1 center is now: Y...)...However, the salary decreases may not happen overnight.

    If it appears that players are signing for roughly the same amount that they would have when the cap was higher, this probably means that the free agent market hasnt adjusted yet.  If this is case, the Bruins would be wise to avoid overpaying for free agents and look internally while the free agent market adjusts.  Its going to be tricky, glad we have PC.
