B’s Beat: Tuukka Rask Haters Give The Ripping A Rest…Your Act Is Getting Old


Hey card carrying members of the Tim Thomas Sacred Cow Club, your Cup winning messiah is NOT coming back.

Tuukka Rask is NOW and for the foreseeable future the starting goalie of your “Beloved” Boston Bruins so GET OVER it!

Why not embrace #40 rather than continually ripping him apart. Reiterating OVER and OVER and OVER again that he is not as good as Saint Thomas Of The Quitters.

Your act is getting old, really old….

Every time Rask has a subpar to poor performance (which has been maybe 5 or 6 games out of 41 starts thus far), the verbal diarrhea flows down the streets of Boston like the great Molassess flood of 1919.

“Puukka Trask does not deserve the multi contract the Bruins gave him” – Wow I guess leading your team to the Stanley Cup Final and being a top 5 goalie doesn’t warrant financial compensation.

“Rask is a choker. He blew the series versus Philly in ’10, against the Caps in ’12 and lost the Cup in 17 seconds versus the Blackhawks.” – Hmm, if my memory doesn’t fail me, the BRUINS blew that series versus Philly and losing Krejci was the beginning of the end (see his playoff performances in ’11 & ’13).

TIM THOMAS was in net when Joel Ward’s weak shot eliminated the Bruins in Game 7 during the 2012 playoffs.

If it was not for Tuukka Rask in 2013, the Bruins don’t have a chance to make a comeback versus the Leafs. He outplayed Henrik Lundqvist (even despite the butt tumble) and was a Zdeno Chara post and Chris Kelly open net from hoisting his second Stanley Cup (first as a starter).

Even though I presented all the evidence to combat the utter BS that the Rask detractors spew, they will find a way to debunk it.

However, it’s quite funny when things are going well, you don’t hear a word from the TT sacred calves.

So when Tuukka Rask wins the Vezina and Cup this year (maybe even the Conn Smythe as a throw in), I don’t want to hear the minion of Tim Thomas to praise Tuukka in any way. Because at the end of the day, you are nothing but front runners and pink hats grasping your Timmy binky until it’s pried away from your cold dead hands.

If you were indeed, TRUE Bruins fans you would root for the logo on the front not against the name on the back.



Tuukka Time is here to stay…..

    I don’t agree cause even though he has a winning season this season isn’t cause of him cause most of those wins were high scoring with the other goalie of each of those wins had a lot of shots thrown at them were Rask had less shots on him with almost always tied games going into the third or he starts throwing the game away sometimes with a 4 point lead

      No way Tuukka is throwing away games? really?

  2. Chris says:

    Go Tuukka go!!! Bring home the cup..prove the haters wrong….GO Bruins!!!!!

      Hell yeah Crhis!

  3. Bravo! I agree 1000%. Surprised there are so many Bruins “fans” that are utter embarrassments and don’t realize how fortunate the team is in net with Tuukka.

      Spot on….very lucky

    TUUKKA is not worth 7 million per, he plays a little better than his back up. All goalies are going to get beat no one can argue when they do.. Giving up soft goals in impact games such as against the Canadians is not what great goalies do.. great goalies stop the ones they should, a few of the ones they shouldn`t and steal a game or two for their team. He is a good goalie but not great..

    1. Joe Gill says:

      Guess you didn’t see the few games he stole in the playoffs last year.

    2. Those who can’t…coach. Rask was the least of the problems vs. the Habs. Nobody skated. Get a clue.

  5. Bruin Lover says:

    Wow, I cannot believe the hating on Tuukka. He rocks the position and the B’s are in the top 4 teams. When the B’s lose it is usually when the entire defense has a bad night; don’t forget the games when Rask saves games even when the D doesn’t show up! Loved the team when TT was here and loving them with TR toi!

    What kind of a person or ‘journalist’ would lecture us die hard hockey fans like this? Using ‘sacred cow’ is a slam on Hindus as well.
    Your so smart you figure out why Tuukkas struggles my subside post IOC testing. As for now I owe you an I told you so. And you should be ashamed.

    1. Joe Gill says:

      Sacred cow is an idiom, a figurative reference to sacred cows in some religions. This idiom is thought to originate in American English,[1] although similar or even identical idioms occur in many other languages.
      The idiom is based on the popular understanding of the elevated place of cows in Hinduism and appears to have emerged in America in the late 19th century.[1] A literal sacred cow or sacred bull is an actual cow or bull that is treated with sincere reverence. A figurative sacred cow is something else that is considered immune from question or criticism, especially unreasonably so.[2][3]

    Tuukka is an awesome goalie!!!!! Boston fans lets not start being like those French frog hab fans and give are starter goalie a hard time for loosing a few games…..A goalie can’t win all the time…..can’t blame Tuukka for last years cup final….what happened to the D on both of those goals….

    I think it was a great move for Boston to sign him for multiple years!!!!!

    No matter what I believe in this years B’s!!!!!!! Go Bruins Go!!!! Tuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuukkka!!!!!
