    Tuuka will get lit up in Columbus just like their goalies do now.

    You can take that to the bank. Tuuka will show his true self playing in front of the worst team in the league. But hey he will be the starter and thats what he wants. He'll realize real quick how good he had it as a back up in Boston.

    When did Tuuka become a Jacket? My guess is he won't be lit up, because he won't be traded.

    Terry Sawchuk, Patrick Roy, and Glenn Hall in their primes would get lit up in Columbus. Only old friend Milan Jurcina prevents Nash and Tyutin from sharing the basement as worst +/- in the league. Nash has 15 even strength goals and is a -23. I don't think he's going to work well with CJ.

    Thanks for the numbers, Pine.

    These numbers are not representative of a top-5 NHL player, even with a lowly club like Columbus.

    Rick Nash may have great talent but he hardly makes others around him better.

    His numbers and history don't lie. What is everyone looking at then?

    If you think goaltender is this team-dependent, then why are you opposed to trading Tuukka?

    Saying even a great goaltender would get lit up behind an awful defense isn't the same as saying an average goalie would be an all-star behind a great defense.  I'm not sure that the Bruins would get even an average goalie to back up Thomas if they traded Rask, meaning that if Thomas got injured or suddenly lost his game, they'd be relying on Anton Who? to backstop their new, sports car offense.

    The Book on Tuuka from Day One has been shoot high. He has improved but is still extremely vulnerable when he goes into the Butterfly too early which he has a Tendency to do (though not as often as 1st 2 years). Tuuka is alternatively spectacular and undependable and still hasn't come close to mastering the art of positioning. On that score Thomas is vastly superior and far more dependable. Tuukas athleticism is Top Shelf and has a glove as good as anyone. The Winnipeg game is a great example on all counts. Alternatively spectacular...and undependable. The spectacular seduces the fans...the undependable had landed him on the bench MORE often than the Bruins would like in this stretch. They REALLY do not want Timmy playing these back to back games at this point in the season. That is a huge red flag on the organizations sentiment in Tuuka. I'll take positioning over athleticism every day of the week. Great Goaltenders have great Positioning AND severely limit rebounds. Thats 95% of the game with the huge pads and equipment in todays game. Great Goaltenders often look less spectacular than average Goaltenders because their positioning precludes the need to be spectacular. Tuuka is often more spectacular than he needs to be.

    I started the thread and Im not a troll....Im just stating the fact that if Tuuka were traded that he would get lit up. Being here in columbus, it doesnt matter who they have in net, still wont help them. The team is awful and yes the BJ's could improve in net a little bit, but the team in front of the goalies now, is brutal.

    Wow, that's as wrong as all of the cockamamie what if/numbers threads you've created. If Rask has anything on TT, it's his positional play.

    TT is a better positional player than Rask???

    When has TT EVER played positionally?

    No kidding.  You can prefer whichever you like on a number of levels, but when you start pretending TT has anything on Tuukka as regarding positional play, you have lost your goaltending commentary privileges.

    Yeah, If anything it's Tuuka who is one of the more positionally sound goaltenders in the league and TT who relies on his athleticism and improvising. And lets be clear, the book on 95% of todays butterfly goalies, is to shoot high, cause theyre down most of the time. While it may be the book, just because you put it there doesnt mean your going to score either. Some are better than others, and when it comes to TT, i dont even think their is a book.

    TT positioned himself for a Cup, a Vezina and a Conn Smythe win last year!

    Not only is your dog whacked! Rask is even one of the better positioned butterfly goalies because he's able to keep his body upright while he's on the slide. The issue with Rask is being able to keep his timing when he's hasn't played. That's the difference between positoning & athletic's. Positioning is where you focus on where you put your body when the puck is in a certain part of the ice. TT's biggest flaw is his positoning. He didn't get the nickname "snoflake" for nothing. His asset is anticipation, patience & refuses to quit on a play. His aggresiveness has helped & hindered him. His athletic ability is the ONLY reason he got to the NHL, it certainly wasn't his positioning, his skating, his puck handling, or his form. What he doesn't have he makes up for in will to compete & battle. To try & say that Thomas is a better positioned goalie over rask shows you haven't been paying attention.

    Tuukka Rask is not getting trade cause TT will be dealt in the offseason for a puck moving defenceman.  Remember this.  It will happen.
