True Or False: Tuukka Rask Best Goalie In The Eastern Conference?
BOSTON (CBS) – Adam Jones had a full five hour show on 98.5 The Sports Hub Wednesday night, so naturally he and Rich Keefe had some fun on the Game Of Jones.
On this latest edition, the game is True or False – here are the five questions, so play along with Adam & Rich by giving us your opinion in the comments section below:
True or False – Tuukka Rask is the best goalie in NHL’s Eastern Conference:
“I will say true to that, and he might be the best goaltender in the NHL. I think certainly he should be a finalist for the Vezina Trophy. … For two years in a row now Tuukka Rask has been excellent. He’s taken his level of play up a notch in the postseason, which doesn’t factor in to the Vezina consideration, but if I had to pick any goalie in the Eastern Conference I’d take Tuukka Rask,” said Jones.
True or False – San Jose Sharks Will Win The Western Conference:
“Every part of me wants to say true, because no one is picking the Sharks. Nobody believes in them because they always come up short in the Stanley Cup playoffs, but I just can’t get myself to pick them. I don’t see them getting out of the Western Conference. It’s loaded. There are teams out there like Colorado and St. Louis that have looked excellent, you still have Chicago looming. We’ve seen this before from the Sharks. They look great, but I’m gonna say false.”
True or False – Michael Carter-Williams Will Unanimously Win NBA’s Rookie Of The Year:
“True. I don’t even get how you can make a case for somebody else. Look at the other rookies, who’s even close? Maybe Victor Oladipo in Orlando? Maybe Trey Burke? Kelly Olynyk will probably be a first team All-Rookie selection, so that just shows you how bad this rookie class is,” said Jones.
True or False – Hitting 500 Home Runs Is Still A Big Deal:
“False. The reaction to this Albert Pujols story is vindication of that. Look at the 26 other guys in the 500 club and look at what numbers mean now in baseball. Good for Albert Pujols, but I don’t get worked up about numbers in baseball anymore. Pujols is a good player, and good players in this day and age hit 500 home runs.”
“It used to be a lock for the Hall of Fame and now it’s not,” added Rich Keefe.
True or False – Carmelo Anthony Will Stay With The New York Knicks:
“I’m gonna say true. It’s hard to leave a market like New York unless you’re going to Los Angeles. The Lakers could make a run at him, but I don’t see them putting all their eggs in the Carmelo basket. You’re the face of one of the premiere franchises in the league, you’re not leaving there,” said Jones.
