I, personally, would take the risk of Price flourishing somewhere else. If I were Pierre Ghautier I would realize that he doesn't like markets this big. That brilliant half of a season he had stopped as soon as he got a taste of the playoffs in Montreal. Niemi proved he can play when the pressure's on in a now revived big market. He had some bad games, just like Halak, but he played well when it mattered most. I don't want to see Price let in a wrist shot from the top of the circle late in a game seven like I know he will. Price is an egg. If handled properly, he becomes a delicious omelet. But if you drop him, he shatters. A rookie goaltender should never play in the playoffs in Montreal, unless of course he is a freak of nature like Roy.
