Debate Rounds (4)
1st Season, Henrik in 2005-06 played 53 games where he won 30 and lost 12 with 9 Overtime loses, he also had two shutouts. He gained the playoffs on his own work. He also won the gold medal in the olympics on his own work during his rookie year in the NHL.
1st Season where Tuukka wasn't even trusted to start because of his lack luster pre-NHL career, Tuukka in 2007-08 played 4 games where he won 2 and lost 1 with 1 Overtime loses, he also had no shutouts. Pretty lackluster start right?
2nd Season, Henrik in 2006-07 played 70 games where he won 37 and lost 22 with 8 Overtime loses, he also had five shutouts. He improved by winning 7 more games and gaining 3 more shutouts. Even though he had 10 more loses, in the grand scheme of things he played more then the last season. He gained the playoffs on his own work.
2nd Season where Tuukka wasn't even trusted to start due to his horrible first season, Tuukka in 2008-09 played ONE game where he won 1 and lost none with 0 Overtime loses, he also had one shutout. It took Tuukka TWO seasons to get a shutout where Henrik had two in his FIRST season
3rd Season, Henrik in 2007-08 played 72 games where he won 37 and lost 24 with 10 Overtime loses, he also had ten shutouts. Playing two more games he maintained 37 wins but losing two more games. But he had 10 shutouts where as last season he only had five. He gained the playoffs with his own work.
3rd Season, Tuukka in 2009-10 played 45 games where he won 22 and lost 12 with 5 Overtime loses, he also had 5 shutouts.
4th Season, Henrik in 2008-09 played 70 games where he won 38 and lost 25 with 7 Overtime loses, he also had four shutouts. The 2008-09 season had little change but he cut down on overtime loses and added an extra win. He gained the playoffs with his own work. He also was an NHL All-Star.
4th Season, Tuukka in 2010-11 played 29 games where he won 11 and lost 14 with 2 Overtime loses, he also had two shutouts.
5th Season, Henrik in 2009-10 played 68 games where he won 35 and lost 25 with 10 Overtime loses, he also had four shutouts. This year was somewhat of a sloppy year. He did not gain the playoffs due to a shootout lose in the last game. Due to the Olympics, there was no All-Star game.
5th Season, Tuukka in 2011-12 played 23 games where he won 11 and lost 8 with 3 Overtime loses, he also had 3 shutouts.
6th Season, Henrik in 2010-11 played 68 games where he won 36 and lost 27 with 5 Overtime loses, he also had eleven shutouts. This year was a big improvement where he had cut down on Overtime loses and he had a career high of shutouts of 11. He gained the playoffs due to his own work. He also was an NHL All-Star for the second straight time.
6th Season, Tuukka in 2012-13 played 36 games where he won 19 and lost 10 with 5 Overtime loses, he also had 5 shutouts. Where he got to the Stanley cup but LOST.
As you can see Tuukka Rask took awhile to get to somewhere near his prime whereas Henrik Lundqvist was in his prime at 26 (Which Tuukka is currently 26) and he was in his prime at the start and still is. Henrik was nominated three times in his first 6 season, where Tuukka hasn't. As you can see Tuukka is slowly progressing while Henrik is still vastly progressing and by the next 5 seasons he will have at least 2 Stanley Cups while Tuukka for the rest of his career will be trying to reach atleast 30 wins a season.

You keep bring up the point how Tuukka Rask will become better, but you have no proof for the argument except your team allegiance to the Boston Bruins.
Yes the bruins have good D, but part of that is tuukka. He has done a good job in net this season, a big reason why the bruins made it to the stanley cup game. I understand they didnt win but henrik lundqvist hasnt even played in a stanley cup game. Henrik was lucky that he improved a lot at a young age. I've said already tuukka isnt at his prime yet. I have also sated it takes time for them to slowly work their way to the top. Tuukkas got real skill and potential now so we still have to see what he has to bring. Henrick hasnt been getting drastically better over the years. Tuukka has. And to point out for tuukkas 6th season you put 2012-13 and henriks you put 2010-11. Either you got it mixed up or i didnt read it right.
I don't think my opponent has read my debate pieces, if he did he would realize that the reason why I ended Henrik's stats at 2010-11 was because that was his 6th season and the reason why I stopped at 2012-13 for Tuukka was because that was Tuukka's 6th season. I wanted to display the drastic improvement Henrik has done as a rookie starting goaltender to a regular/veteran goaltender while Tuukka's was slow and unimpressive due to a proven unreliable skill set he has.
1. Opponent does not bring any sources to the debate
2. Many misspelling
3. Not much stats used to prove his case
