Objective Comments on Price

Two articles posted this morning on about Price not yet playing up to the hype. Both seem pretty dead-on thus far. Neither suggests that Price won't emerge as the franchise goaltender that many think he will become, but both point out that he's not yet playing that way.

Earlier in the season there was an article interviewing Melanson. Rollie said that what he is really trying to work on with Price is his focus, a la Brodeur. It will take time but this is one aspect of his game that you really feel can be improved-- Price doesn't always looked "locked in" the way I would like to see. Part of it is the team's lack of confidence, but could you imagine how much more confident the team will get if they truly come to feel that they have a wall back there in goal. It's never a one man show, but Carey can be doing more to ensure that one bad goal doesn't occur. Of course, he's only 21 but I would like to see him quietly lead this team a little bit more through this current adversity. One word: consistency.
