Blame Don Waddell. If Atlanta doesn't back out of that deal that had Hedberg coming to Montreal then Carey Price would have had a pressure release valve and a calming presence behind him on the bench as opposed to another hungry rookie who wants the net.

With that said, don't let the haters get you down. Carey Price is going to be an amazing goaltender and a good one as soon as next season. They need to sign a veteran to back him up and provide some much needed insight and calming presence but he's not going to need that for long. Montreal has a top of the league starter on their hands and they just have to make sure that they give him time to grow into the player that he can be. If this kid is worth having, and from all accounts he is going to be, then he'll take this disappointment and let it fire him up for the puck drop in October.
