He's a kid and he has the toughest job in hockey...
I agree that he's young and has a very tough job. But knowing what I know about Price, it is truly not a concern to me.

I do strongly disagree with that his problem isn't technical. The way to hug the post, the way to go down on every shot, whether he's screened or not, the way he moves laterally, those are traits that every goalie coached by Melanson share. He's transforming every goalie into a butterfly goalie and they all struggle because they're on their knees to often and too soon.
