Thursday's Dump & Chase: Tuukka Rask Stays in Boston; 8 Years, $56 Million

This is a deal the Bruins had to make, locking up their franchise goalie, and one of the elite players in the league, for the next 8 years. But now they find themselves in a situation much like the Predators, with a lot of money invested in the top guy, and basically no backup. Still, Bruins fans should be happy (like we are) to have an outstanding goalie locked up for the next several years. And hey, I think Tim Thomas is still available...maybe he could be the backup? (Unfortunately, they don't hand out long-term deals at the Toast of Music City Reader's Choice Awards ...we have to go year-to-year. They "signed" us last year, but it's up to you if we get that next "contract". Head on over and vote...the last day for "roster decisions" is Sunday!)
