Now, I do think Price is better than Lehtonen, but given all of the logjams at the goalie position around the league, the market for a young goalie, 1st round selection or not, should not require a recent 2nd overall draft pick.

This is why I think some type of deal should be available for a Coburn or Carle + pics, hell toss in Hartnell just for fun, but it should most definitely NOT be a JVR, at this point in time.
Lehtonen was walking injury that never exactly excelled in Atlanta (probably through little fault of his own). Price has had a little bit more success at a younger age.
