Rask gets one-year deal from Bruins.

The Boston Bruins today re-signed goaltender Tuukka Rask to a one-year, $3.5 million contract. Rask was slated to become a restricted free agent on July 1.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: It’s surprising Rask only got a one-year deal, as it was expected he’d be in line for a multi-year deal while poised to become their starting goaltender. The deal also doesn’t go into effect until July 1, so as to avoid violating the league’s salary “tagging” rule.  This appears to be a “show-me” contract, for Rask to prove he can carry the load for an entire season as the Bruins full-time starter. If he does so successfully, expect him to get a more lucrative, long-term deal next year.

    The one year deal works for both sides. He gets a shot at showing his true abilities as a #1 so if he preforms he’s laughing to the bank next season, if he does not Boston is not locked in at a high rate.
