People need to stop making excuses for the kid. I never seen so much hype around a player in my life. It's not our fault he can't live up to it.

Gainey made a huge mistake by just handing the #1 position to Price. He should have kept Huet, used Halak as the backup and left Price in Hamilton where he could develop properly and earn the #1 job with his effort and time spent in the AHL.

He never proved anything in the AHL or the NHL yet. Joining the Bulldogs in the playoffs when they are hot and winning a Calder Cup doesn't mean anything to me. If he would have played a full year in Hamilton and been with the team through their slumps and then won the Calder Cup....that would be a lot different.

I have made enough excuses for Price....its time for him to get his head in the game and start playing like a #1 goalie instead of a rotten backup letting 5 goals in a game!!!!
