Not targeting you necessarily, mainly those here who think size is the determining factor in being a winner, when it's not.

Exactly, we don't. If we can get good goaltending from Halak long term and if we get a guy like Eberle for Price, then there's no reason not to do that trade...Halak + Eberle >> Price.
There are some very good reasoins NOT to do that trade.

Price has a lot more upside than a guy like Eberle. Eberle gets overrated big time because of McGuire and the WJHC. The guy can finish, no doubt, but he is neither big nor fast, he is a one dimensional player, plus he doesn't fill a need for us, we already have Gionta Cammy Pouliot and AK as top 6 wingers.

Good goaltending gets you into the playoffs, but great goaltending can win you cups(see Patrick Roy and Brodeur).
