I don't blame them for trying Price first--but a more prudent GM would have made sure he had a veteran backup.

I picked Montreal to win the East--I still think they have the best roster of skaters in the East. But the lack of a capable #2 ruined your post-season.
That's all well and good, but Price wasn't at his best until the traded Huet. Having Christo back up Price didn't seem to be a good option. And what about Halak? Is he bad enough to actually make a difference? There's not much seperating the three.
