SanDog, I will never understand your personal thing against me. Its fine that you disagreed with me about Thomas back then and disliked me for it. You have that right. But now, it seems that you completely misunderstand post after post of mine, and those posts just doesnt seem to be a problem with others.
However, I'm going to clarify yet another post. Hopefully you will understand, even if you don't agree.
Lets just get right to your last line:" Now you want to jump all over Rask?"
It what post out of the last 1000 I've made, anywhere, have I remotely "jumped all over Rask" in any version of the English language?I LIKE Rask
. I am absolutely frustrated for him, in support of him, that he is again being glued to the bench. Tuukka Rask said "I dont want to spend my whole career on the bench." If I were Tuukka I'd say the exact same words. People here tried to say Tuukka "never complained about playing time." He absolutely did
, and your "clarification" changed nothing. Google translate has nothing to do with "if I get a shutout its not enough." He doesnt want to rot on the bench in Boston. I like that he's not happy sitting. He should ne frustrated. That's not jumping on someone. THATS EXPLAINING WHY HE WILL LEAVE IF HE'S NOT TRADED.
Maybe you are confused about what suggesting a trade means. It sounds like you think my suggesting they trade Rask is a negative. I think Tuukka is a franchise goalie, rotting away and being wasted here. Not playing against Montreal was unbelievable. And every time they throw him back out there after sitting for 10 days, the idiots come out and complain that he's rusty, that he's not sharp.
And wait... before you even start your predictable Thomas overreaction... this has ZERO to do with Thomas. I understand why Julien plays the Conn Smythe winner a lot. That is not the point. The point is Rask is looking towards the door.
In defense of Tuukka, I say the Bruins should do the guy a favor and let him start his career someplace instead of wasting him. I also said the B's cannot afford to pay 2 #1 goalies next year. Finally, I said trading for a desperately needed forward is better than watching him walk away, because no matter how much he acts like a good teammate and says he likes Boston, he's a goalie... and goalies... good
ones... HATE to sit.
Can you understand that my position on Rask is because I LIKE him, not that I'm "jumping all over" him?
SD, really, you are literally misunderstanding my posts 180 degrees lately, and I don't write that unclearly. I sure spell better than most. If your hatred for me from 2 years ago makes it so you can't even read my posts, we would both be better off if you would just block me.
