It seems we all agree he has to sharpen-up mentally for him to play to his potential consistently. Like you say, he has the talent.
Oh, and if anyone is overrated and overhyped, it's Pierre Maguire
Well there you go. I'm not saying Price doesn't have the POTENTIAL to be a franchise goalie, or a top 5 goalie in the league.
It's expecting him to be a top 5 goalie and franchise goalie RIGHT NOW that makes him overhyped, especially when knowing that goaltenders take longer to develop than any other position.
