He hasn't done ANYTHING in the NHL to deserve such hype and credit. He had a couple of good streaks so far in his career where he has looked pretty good. But then he has had some awful streaks so far that make people question why he is the Habs #1 goalie and why he is even in the NHL right now.

The fact is, he was rushed. He should have played a season or 2 in Hamilton, but Gainey wanted to push him and force him into the #1 job even though he wasn't ready for it. Halak is looking like the better goalie between the 2 of them. Halak has been respectable since he came in the NHL and he hasn't had the terrible streaks that Price has had.
The Fact that he is 21 and besides his slide after the injury, he has better stats than most starting goalies...based on that "habs fan"
