The team might get more lucky in the injuries department AND/OR in on-ice cohesion, but Halak's play was just phenomenal last year. And even if Price might not have to be as good as Halak was for us to be competitive, he needs to be consistant, and among the 15 better goalies of the league if we want to succeed.
What I meant, is that Price doesn't have to be the great goalie he's supposed to be for us to win a Cup. If he's as good as Niemi (not half his potential), add a few d men and we're a contender.
Obviously if he plays like dirt, the season is over.
