The Curious Case of Carey Price

Let's assume for a minute that there is method to Gainey's madness and he continues to play Price not for the blind egotistical reasons that seem to encumber him but because he knows this year's team isn't good enough to win the Cup and wants to get Price the necessary experience to make him better long term.

I've been racking my brain and I'm trying to think of there's ever been a precedent for this type of experiment. Has there ever been another goalie you guys can think of that was brought along this way? When I think of goalies in the last 25 years or so that have had success Brodeur, Roy, Fuhr, Belfour, Roy, Hasek, Kiprusoff etc. has there ever been a goalie "taught" how to adapt to the playoffs this way?

On a side note - the TSN panel finally mentioned the injuries the Habs had being a factor to which James Duthie sneered "excuses." God how I loathe the Leafs glee club getting these plum jobs in the national (Toronto) media...
