    Tuukka Rask has very similar start to his career, except Tuukka is much younger :)

     

    This is crazy to fathom but Tuukka Rask is off to a better start , than some of the greatest goalies to ever play the game.  At only 25 and with basicly only 2 years at starter, and 2 years at backup Rask has compiled insane numbers to start an amazing career.

     

    Rask in his 1st 140 games reg season 

     

    wins 66 losses 45    279 GA    2.15 GAA  saves 3811  .927 save %  16 SO (shut outs)

     

    Dominik Hasak  1st 140 games

     

    Wins 68 losses 44   311 GA  2.22 GAA  saves  2442   .921 save %  12 SO  

     

    The big difference is Postseason

     

    Rask  in 2 postseasons  

    28 games started   18 wins  10 losses  66 GA  2.20 GAA  .927 save %   1 shutout against the most prolific offense in the NHL today. 

    Hasek in his 1st 2 playoff seasons as starter

    12 games started 4 wins  8 losses 31 GA  2.50 GAA  .905 save %    2 shutouts in 2 1st round losses by Hasek led team in Buffalo. 

    Patrick Roy 1st 2 postseasons

    26 games started 19 wins 7 losses 61 GA  3.00 GAA .900 save % 1 shutout  

     

    Rask is well on his way as some of the past greats !!!!

    Ugh that didnt work well LOL  Numbers DONT lie, Rask is off to a better start than arguably the best goalies ever in Dominik Hasek, Marty Brodeur and Patrick Roy .  The kid is even better in the playoffs !!  He is well on his way to greatness with this defensive system Claude loves to employ. He has arguably the best 2 way forward this game has seen in ages, in Mr Bergeron.

    He also has arguably the most fearsome defenseman in Chara, and my favorite wolverine in Marchand.  Claude has a mix of talent that can lock down the most offensive forces in the game. Lucic has been huge , not only not taking stupid penatlies but for making things easier for the leagues top offensive player throughout the playoffs in Krejci. I'm not saying Tuukka has'nt done a marvelous job, but just like Thomas, hes got some great defensive minded talent helping him, maybe to become one of the greats to ever play the position. In 5 years and only 25, he is well on his way!  Lets go B's !!   Lets finish this in 4 !!

    Interesting numbers.

    What impresses me must about Rask is that he never seems out of position.  He does not look flashy because he rarely has to scramble to make saves.  He is always well positioned, so the puck looks like is just hits him.  This serves him well, even when he is screened.

    Sort of contradictory there.  The first part lauds Rask while the second part lauds team defense.

    This thread is very Stanley-esque.  Ignore & ignore.  Done.
