Hearing about how if we had given up a large part of our future at the trade deadline for a goalie when we didn't even know if we could put ourselves back into the postseason with all of our injuries is just ****ing annoying at a point. Right now everyone is citing the same ******** to rip off Carter or JVR or even Giroux. Seriously, we know it would've been nice to have a Stanley Cup right now, but at the time, holding pat was the correct decision.
He made a few points.

If we had Price instead of JVR, we're probably looking at a cup win.

Then he commented that the window is short.

When I read the two comments together I see it as an endorsement of a JVR for Price trade, to get us a grade-a goalie while the championship window is still open. I don't see any *****ing with the benefit of hindsight or anything else. He's just saying that JVR still looks a ways off, and Price could be the difference in the next few years (which he emphasized by his hypothetical assertion about this year).
