Price's collapse since the all-star break is reflected in his statistics - a 2-8-1 record with a 3.81 goals-against average and an .864 save percentage. His fall from grace has been played out against a backdrop of rumours that the young goaltender has spent too much time enjoying the nightlife in Montreal.
Nobody has addressed the matter directly, but Carbonneau said this week that Price has to change some of his habits. Price acknowledged his shortcomings when he said: "
My dad always said your sins will sort you out. He's a pretty religious man and evidently he was right."
I stand tall in all of this in my evaluation of Price. The Guy has undeniable talent. This has got to be the hardest place to be a goalie and a young one for that matter. The media, the history and the people are all in has pressure.
Nowhere in this league that it a harder place to be in net compare to MTL. I look at Mason from CLB, same age and one in the world junior. The Jacket, well they are writing their history and maybe they have 5 reporters and perhaps 3/4 full ring. No pressure. Just the hockey side of things. This is not to take away anything from mason but it sure helps.
