remember critical thinking? You are still not doing that.

- Yes it was, but also realize that Price is only 21-22 years old in a position where msot players come to their prime between ages of 25 -28 (example: Lundqvist)

- It was the only one

- the other gifts the poster enumrated were all either more numerous, or closer to their prime, or of higher value compared to a a young goaltender that has a lot to learn.

Will you still be here if the Habs win their next five games? We all know you'll still be here tomorow even if the Habs win, and I can predict what you will be saying... "its only one win, they still have a lot of problems, they'll continue to lose, yaddi yaddi yadda..."
