Tuukka Rask just opted out of the rest of the NHL playoffs. He says he feels bad but there are more important things than hockey and being with his family is more important.
Hockey-ily speaking, I am very sad. Our chances of winning a cup this year are not zero by any stretch, but they are greatly reduced without Tuukka. Still, I 100% support him. Given the state of the universe outside of hockey right now, Tuukka is making the right decision. My hockey-heart is a little broken, but I’m with you, dude. Go do what you have to do.
