In the games the Habs put Price in net:
An average goaltender would have had a GAA of 2.91 and a save percentage of 90.78%
Price has a 2.67 GAA and a 91.55% save percentage.


So as of right now, Halak is playing better than Price. Although the teams Halak plays have a slightly lower shooting percentage, Halak is facing an average of three more shots per game than Price, which actually makes it such that Halak has had the tougher job this year (on top of posting better numbers).

Myth: Halak playing against lower tiered team has made his job easier.

BUSTED!
Thank you for posting this.

If this doesn't clear it up for some people on these boards, and they continue to make arguments then I say everyone just gives up. Not going to get much more logical then this post right here.
