07:15 AM ET 05.01 | As a soon-to-be RFA, Tuukka Rask has a lot more riding on the playoffs than wins and losses. [Rask] is already likely to be awarded an annual contract that amounts to something in between the six-year, $31.8 million handed out to Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard ($5,291,677 cap hit) and the six-year, $38 million pact ($6.5 million cap hit) handed out to Carey Price. It could be closer to one or the other depending on his individual performance. ... "You're judged on your performance. That will apply to Tuukka [Rask]. That will apply to everyone who is up for an extension," said Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli. "Tuukka is no different than the rest of them."

If he gets a contract of that magnitude, the B's are skrewed for years to come.

Memo to Chiarelli: trade the bum in the off season (you will know why in about 10 days).

I hope he gets a multiple year deal worth many, many millions just from his 1st round play alone. :-)

Ya caught me......

Staypuff back in Boston should be fun tonight. Especially after getting his pee pee wacked by Little Davey for not talking to the media.

If the Bruins get bounced before the Conference Finals, it won't mean a damn.

The same Luongo that got Torched by Edmonton in the last game of the reg season.

Way to go. Now I'm off DL's Christmas card list! Probably no gift either.

QUOTE(#13):

He's not a bum by any stretch, but I hope they don't sign him to an onerous long term contract. Let him earn it as he goes along and keep him hungry, which is my position on all pro athletes.

You have Chelios Jr Jr ready to step up anyway.

You'll get over it. Plus I'm going to remain generally decent and polite to you unless the Caps and Leafs meet each other in the playoffs. Then I'll hire Canuck as a consultant!
