Price did not lose Montreal the series.

We only made it to round 2 because we played Boston. The team largely played like crap for two rounds

can't agree with that.

All other things being equal the goaltender at the other end of the rink outplayed Price by a considerable margin. What that means on the blame scale is not important, nor is it important to totally pin this on a single scapegoat. But I think it needs to be realized that Price has not yet shown he's the goaltender that people think he already is. On the bright side perhaps the words "saviour" will be reserved and comparisons to Roy put away.
