Rask isn't worried about contract TheFourthPeriod.com
Tuukka Rask could have signed a multi-year contract with the Bruins this summer, but told the Boston Globe he isn't concerned about his one-year deal.
Rask, 25, will step in as Boston's No. 1 goalie this coming season and acknowledged that he could have signed a similar three-year, $12 million deal to the one Cory Schneider received in Vancouver.
"A lot of people, I guess, were a little surprised about the contract and stuff," Rask told the Globe. "But I really can't tell the team that I want a long contract because I am an age that I would have gone to [salary] arbitration. We just figured it was best for both of us. And if I have a good year, then maybe I sign a longer deal.
"And if I suck, then kick me out, you know?"
Rask appears confident he'll prove his worth and sign a long-term deal with the club, at some point.
"Sometimes, you have to roll the dice a bit and see what happens," he said.
