Khudobin's number were fine, but the last bruin's coach rode Rask until he had a bad game, then once he gained form played him for stretches again.

Let's hope so.
Even if only in the playoffs.

Khudobins numbers were fine sure but he scared the hell out of me in net. He did battle though which made the team want to battle for him. He was a product of the team in front of him.

I 100% agree - I was never comfortable when he was in net.

This seems to be a bit of a lateral move to me. Neither goalie is really capable of being a long term stater and their track record speaks to it. Halak is decent but like Khudobin, he is prone to injury. Seems to be a wash.

Go big or go home. Not only did we sign him, but for 5 years.

Hell, Sweeneys not really signing anyone.. but Im ok with that. No need to chase a bunch of "b" level players if the guys he really wanted go elsewhere.

They're already polishing a few turds like Krejci and Backes

To be fair, when you see players like Stastny getting 6.5 mill per. Krejcis contract is actually not that crazy. It doesn’t look good that Patrice and Marchand make less but those are two of the best contracts in the nhl right now. He is still a top 2 center.

That being said. I would still trade him to the Wild for zucker
