He also was used as lightning rod for all of Gainey's detractors and the sheeps, err... the fans, meekly and quickly agreed with their Ph.D in psychology found in cereal boxes that he's "not tough enough mentallyl" because that's how it is in this ****ing city.
In actuality, I believe it was GAINEY who referred to Price as a "thoroughbred" when members of the media were questioning why Halak didn't get any starts against the Bruins when Price went 0 for 4. If anybody has been doing the overhyping it's been the organization itself. So don't get all worked up when the media starts looking for Seabiscuit.
