Is Tuukka Rask Ready to be the No. 1 Goalie for the Bruins?

Many people expected the Bruins to ink Tuukka Rask to a long-term deal this offseason, but instead he agreed to a one year deal worth $3.5 million.

Rask had this to say when asked about signing a one year deal:

“We figured that [the one-year deal] is best for both parties, and then if I have a good year I’ll get signed to a longer deal. If I suck then kick me out, you know?”

He is willing to earn a long-term contract with his play this season, I think that says a lot about the 25-year-old goalie and I expect a great season from him.

Rask started 39 games in the 09-10 season, posting a sub-2.00 goals against with five shutouts.

Now, knowing he is the number one guy going into the season, he should show us his best play.
