Price lost the RoY to some dude named Kane, that put up 72 pts as a 19 y/o. Last year Mason won it as a goalie with weaker numbers than what Price put up. Price was tied for 6th in SVPCT his rookie year (with Brodeur)... and GAA is a team stat, not a goalie stat. Hasek and Brodeur, for example, played for two of the best clampdown teams in the NHL.
Price's rookie season he put up almost exactly the same number as Huet. Same GAA and same Save % on the best team in the East. It wasn't like he carried that team. Since that season he followed it up by finishing outside the top 20 in save % the last 2 seasons.
