When the Toronto Maple Leafs traded Tuukka Rask to the Boston Bruins for Andrew Raycroft on June 24, 2006, that told everybody former GM John Ferguson Jr became not a real General Manager and had no balls.
The Leafs also had goalie Justin Pogge who had just won a gold medal at the World Junior Championships but absolutely everyone knew Rask become the better goalie. If each person paid attention to the World Juniors, Rask was making 50 saves a night time and he was named nice goalie of the Tournament and not Pogge.

The Boston Bruins might have taken Pogge rather than Rask but Ferguson Jr. turned into so scared of the media and backlash if he were to change the gold medal goalie that he shipped Rask to Boston instead of Pogge.
Not to take whatever faraway from the season James Reimer had this yr but Rask is a goalie that comes round once each ten years. Rask has lead the Bruins to the Stanely Cup final this yr…. what might have been for the Leafs….
