So who starts against Dallas? Price was apparently quite good last night but the team was actually winning with Halak.
In 06-07, he was the best goaltender in the AHL. He gets called up at the end of the season, win many games and almost bring the team in the playoffs. Then, for the last game, they decide to put Huet back in nets... and we know how it ended.

Then, the team then decides to NOT send him back for the playoffs in the AHL, the team he has brought into the playoffs... and they decide to give Price the nets. Price then leads the team to the calder cup...

In 07-08, the team decides for some reasons to send Halak back in the AHL to make room for Price as the backup of Huet. From what I remember, that's not because Price played better at the training camp, but mostly because Gainey wanted his guy in nets. He only gets a few games after Huet gets traded at the end of the season... after having another great season in the AHL.

In 08-09, he starts the year as the backup of Price. Price then starts to play bad after the ASG and Halak wins some games in a row by himself. He gets sick and then lose his spot on front of the nets.

I would be unhappy in his situation too... he is treated unfairly by the team.
