No, no. I don't know many people who expected him to play like 25-27 year old Brodeur after 120 games. I know lots of people who promised/expected he'd be playing better than 24 year old Halak though.
I really hope a deal doesn't go down this year, even if the return seems over the top. I want another year to see if Halak can put up a string of good seasons with lots of starts, and get a better idea of what Price's actual (meaning the non-fanboy version) upper potential might be.
There really is no need to radically revamp this team as if a major playoff push is in the cards this year. They should still be more focused on the future and direct their energy towards replacing high-priced replaceable veterans with talented young players who address the actual weaknesses on this team.
