Next For Bruins, Signing RFA Tuukka Rask

from Steve Silva of Bruins Blog at the Boston Globe,

The Bruins No. 1 goaltender who shined through much of the postseason, said he would like to remain in Boston for the long tern.

"That would be an ideal situation, I think to play here forever," Rask said. "I hope we can make that happen."

Chiarelli was asked how much he'd want to get a new deal for Rask done so that the team wouild have an idea where the rest of the summer might go from there.

"Well, you’d like to get everything done quickly," Chiarelli said. "I don’t know if I’ll have that luxury, but certainly I’ll try just so you have your certainty on your team and cap and all that. He’s obviously had a terrific playoff and we’d like to get him done as soon as we can."

Rask was asked if he believes he's proven himself with his performance this season.

"I don’t think I have to answer those questions anymore," he said. "I played good. Proved everyone again that I was capable of doing it. I mean you look at the numbers. They’re good. If I just analyze my game and by how I felt throughout the year I thought it was a great year. "
