ROtY and Cup at 23, Price hasn't come close to that kind of success.
You're mistaking team success for what I think is a great season for a goalie as an individual is.

Brodeur:
21 - 27-11-8 .915 2.40
22 - 19-11-6 .902 2.45
23 - 34-30-12 .911 2.34
24 - 37-14-13 .927 1.88

At age 20, Price posted 24-12-3 .920 2.56... had a mediocre age 21, and was solid but not great this year. Hey, sort of exactly like what young Brodeur did in his first three seasons. Price just didn't have a stellar team in front of him the way Brodeur did.
