Everyone believes in the timely save thing and Rask does have it. If he didn't the Bruins wouldn't have made it past the 1st round this offseason. We also do disagree and that is ok. I don't know how intimate your knowledge about the goalie position is but I know that you also view things from a B's fans perspective. Thus you are going to have a natural bias on things in certain ways. Some right and some wrong. There isn't anything wrong with that either.
I don't think any save Binnigton was asked to make was nearly as hard as those two shots on Rask. Binnington was asked to come up with some very difficult saves but none of them were bordering on impossible. Using your scale Binnington only faced a handful 9s at worst whereas Rask faced 3 10s to go with a handful of 9s at least. He even saved one of the 10s. St. Louis created better quality chances than the Bruins throughout the entirety of the game and the Bruins only created 4 to St. Louis' 2 after the 1st with the 2 by St. Louis being the best chances created all game.
All that said that dog story is not applicable at all.
Edit: After thinking about this post I realized that the wording of it can make it look like I am trying to discredit you. That was never my intent as I was only trying to point out what I thought were the origins of why we disagreed. If you took this post to be aggressive or negative in a manner like that than I do apologize as it was not my intent whatsoever. This entire discussion between us was over a difference of opinion. An opinion that frankly neither of us can be proven right on.
