Just a question.....do goalies and their coaches need to adapt to this new league? Is it normal that Carey still think that playing the "percentage" is enough in this league? To me, he has the same mentality that he had in Juniors and in the AHL. Obviously it worked, so he's probably asking himself, why the heck doesn't it still work? 'Cause not only the players are better but now they have more time to aim.....Playing the percentage might still work in some NHL games, especially when the opponent is started to know how you're playing. But it's a question of being able to adapt.....players seems to be able to do it, we'll see if Price can do it as well.

So will Melanson adapt his way of teaching to this new reality? Is Melanson going with his goalies's strenght and work with that or impose his way of seeing things.

Unfortunately, I don't think we can't answer some of those questions.....
