A.B. This guy is the ultimate internet troll. But us “people in Boston” don’t just dislike his statement… we dislike his smug attitude, his corny wine painting and his NHL hat made for a 12 year old as well. Where are the facts Stevie boy; Mr. hockey expert? “He’s just not that good,” isn’t an argument – it’s unsubstantiated drivel from a Midwest homer. Make the case. Find some stats to back you up. Prove that the 52 saves Rask made in Game 3 against the Penguins weren’t tough shots. Hell, make it up if you have to. Say that Crosby had the flu and that’s why Rask looked good. Or, maybe Rask’s pads are too big and that’s why he appears to be talented? By simply stating that YOU think Rask isn’t that good does nothing for real hockey fans. On the contrary, Rask’s playoff stats – 2 shutouts, .943 save percentage (1st), 1.75 goals against (2nd) – tell a much better story. It must be embarrassing getting schooled by a part-time blogger like myself, but it’s really common sense
