Changing the things we have in common with last year method doesn't always work.
Well you can't really compare one guy with a group of players. It's apples and oranges. Plus it was written in stone last summer that Price was going to be our guy. Anyway it's not just changing because we lost last year. It's because the defense wasn't nearly good enough then, and Bouillon and Brisebois aren't getting any younger/ better. That pairing stands out even in regular season games against mediocre teams, imagine against the elites in a 7 game series where momentum is so fragile. Add on that Gorges isn't really a stud #4 guy. He's close, but probably not there yet.

The defense is just not good enough.
