Look at Price in the recent games. He's not squaring to the play as usual. He's looked unready on shots. Clearly his stuggles are mental. When the team sees a goalie looking like that on the ice, it puts them on their guard.

Most any #1 goalie can raise a team's play if they themselves are focused and ready, no matter the struggles of the team. Jose Theodore did it for 2 seasons.

Price is turning in good preformance, bad one, good one, bad one. Again, like Theo did after his MVP season..... and the team is playing the same way they did during that time. Different players, same result. I said it before - it looks like the team that was eliminated in last year's playoffs, no better, no worse.
The sharks are 10-2 with a bad season nabokov(by his standard) price stats > in both gaa and sv%

the difference is when nabokov give up 4 or 6 goals, his team score 4+ or 6+.
