    When the game is on the line rask let's one in. Halak could be the guy to bring steady sound goaltending. I wouldn't be surprised he will declared the starter. If rask fumbles it's Halak all the way.

    He’s going to challenge Rask to be better.

    Just like Dobby did. But even more

    Better then 2 u's 2 a's 3 k's, 7 goals.

    I loved Rask like when I loved Julien, when he was good.

    Halak is a beauty, nice So.

    Vezina Trophy ! Just kidding. As we all know, Halak is some mysterious guy. He could have a streak of 3-4 fantastic games, but then also a streak of 5 totally horrible games.

    Surprisingly, when you look to shutouts from active goalies , he has one of the best ratio Games / SO.

    Looking to next months.

    The year might change,

    But for many, the axe to grind remains the same.

    (And I liked the Halak pickup)

    To quote Luke Skywalker; “There’s something familiar about this place.”

    That early tough save to keep it 0-0 was key IMO.

    Great point. I close my eyes when Rask try's to make a play with the puck and I literally mean try's . He' is absolutely terrible with it and his decision making with it isn't much better.

    Change Halak to Dobby and this thread seems like a repeat of last year with most of these comments lol. Its great that Halak had a solid game, but its not like Buffalo is some juggernaut team. Lets also not forget that Halak didn't fare much better than Rask vs Washington.

    I personally hope Halak plays so well that he pushes Rask more than he's been pushed before. I know fans love to praise TT for his run, but he had Rask as a back-up, pushing him to stay sharp. Rask hasn't really had anyone with #1 goalie pedigree to push him and Halak could be that guy. In a perfect world both guys are pushing each other and it doesn't matter who you have in net on any given night because both goalies are on the top of their game.

    I've very, very curious to see 20-25 games out of Halak with a good team in front of him.

    A few things I have noticed so far...

    1. His puck handling is miles better than Tuukka's.
    2. He's fantastic when there's a scramble in front of him. It looks like he's always in position.
    3. He has a tiny head.
    4. He battles.

    Rask is on a thin thread line this year he knows it management knows it you know it I know it. If he struggles this year it's bye bye. They gave him enough chances. I love rask but his time is running out and he has a lot of value right now and can be flipped for a bounty. We have Halak now and vlader seems like an excellent prospect and his time will come..

    Are you just going from thread to thread copying and pasting the same Rask BS?

    3. I thought I was the only one that noticed this. Didn’t want to draw attention to it.

    Borderline that guy from Beetlejuice. Helmets must be difficult to size right
