On the subject of Price
. Needs more development? I've only been saying that since the first season he was on the team. Yes, he did have a good rookie campaign and yes, he also has a lot of potential. But potential needs to be developped properly and turned into a puck-stopping machine. In Price's case, he was said to be "the future", when really "the future" meant "the right-now".
I feel bad for him because all this pressure was put on him so early,
that anyone could struggle under that.
I couldn't agree with you more!
I feel bad for Price because - at least IMHO - his career has been badly mismanaged - he should have spent an entire year down in the AHL, learining the pro game.
Ditto for Max Pax. Turned pro too soon, rushed into the NHL too soon and has struggled.
Subban spent an entire year in the AHL and now is playing like a poised veteran!
