Montreal is too much for him....at least thats what he has shown so far with his inconsistant play.
To be fair, he's mostly inconsistent due to his lack of work ethic (which has since improved this year).

He's gotten worse every year and still hasn't shown any maturity. He hasn't shown any indication that he can handle the pressure of playing in Montreal either...and thats important. Halak handled the pressure and the spotlight very well and he's improved every season since joining the Habs.....he's the guy we should have kept, but thats another story.
Halak never had the same expectations as Price and Price was also rushed into the NHL at a very young age, when he wasn't mentally ready for it. I still don't think he's ready for it. I'm not sure Carey has the emotional make-up to be a top NHL goalie to be honest. Halak never had to deal with so much media, etc.
