    I really don't know anything about the kid. Is it too early to judge his potential? Do you think he will be a top 5 pick in 05? Does he compare with Lehtonen, Fleury ect. Any info would be appreciated.

    Every time I hear his name I keep hearing that he's better than Kari Lehtonen, Ari Ahonen, and Hannu Toivonen.

    Rask compares to the best goalies of this draft class. He's kind of like Mika Noronen with better mental abilities which would also seem to show in his technique. Lehtonen, Noronen and Schwarz are the only Europeans who can match his development curve so far.

    We saw more than enough Montoya vs. Schwarz polls this year, I'm guessing we'll be plagued with Rask vs. Levasseur from now on.
