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.
