Zane can probably be used for a game or two in a pinch, but if this Rask thing is long term they’ll need to make a trade.

In fact, mid-80s, GM Harry Sinden would have met Rask prior to the next day’s workout and informed him he had been placed on an LOA. No request required. Nothing to grant. Rask would have been told to take a few days off, dwell on his $7 million-a-year salary, and get back on the job after clearing his head.
https://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/bruins/2018/11/13/bruins-tuukka-rask-update/USksUv8YQpwiI95FRvcUFL/story.htmlRumors over the weekend ran rampant as to why Rask, 457 regular-season appearances on his résumé, requested a leave of absence. Surprisingly, at least as of late Monday morning, none of those rumors linked him to Elvis, a Kardashian, Area 51, or Russian interference. But, wait, it’s early, there’s still time for a Stonehenge link before the charter goes wheels up Tuesday afternoon.
There's a line between being a douche and just plain unprofessional, and Dupes crossed that one in spades.What we don’t know, and may never know, are the details as to why Rask felt things were so problematic at home — as he underscored after practice — that he felt the need to abandon his Black-and-Gold brothers ahead of back-to-back Garden visits by Toronto and Vegas.
This fact surprised me. So I looked it up and then realized that Tuukka has been with the Bruins for 12 years. Time has flown.It's also worth noting that Rask is a mere 10 wins away from becoming all time franchise leader.....something a player who isn't dedicated to his team and his craft could never achieve. The insinuations are beyond the pale.
