I do agree that the word franchise gets thrown around here to much, for JVR and Price.

"in 25 starts for Carey, team scored 26 goals.. so ya, you can't blame Price for the lack of wins, you blame the TEAM"

This quote is from the Habs board. Someplace else I read that in 6 games the Flyers had scored 22 goals and still lost. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that playing behind the Flyers defense and oh, yeah, the Flyers can actually score goals, too, Price would have won a lot more games than he did with the Habs. I'm sorry, but when a goalie makes 30+, 40+ and 50+ saves and the team still loses, the goalie is not the major problem.
