But guess what now Price won't be a rookie for next years playoffs. If Huet had been the starter this time we'd be going to all this rookie goalie garbage next year.
you take the words out of my mouth
that was Gainey's plan, to give Price playoffs experience. He didn't want to win the cup only this year, but be able to win a few cups in the next ten years. That's also why he wasn't ready to sacrifice Higgins for Hossa.
The goal has always been to win the cup for the 100th year and I will feel a lot more comfortable next year with Price in the net, knowing that he's got 11 playoffs games under his belt.
