Not comparing Price to Brodeur at all but just pointing out that low SV% does not equate poor W-L record automatically.

Do I expect those stats from Price, not really. But its nice to hope I guess.

Realistically, 30 to 35 wins with 0.918 SV%.
No, you are right.
Look at Niemi, 26 W in 39 games while going 2.25 and .912 SV%.
But neither Niemi nor Brodeur played behind the Habs who gave up a whole lot of more shots and scoring opportunities.
Price hade the same SV% as Niemi and comparable to Brodeur but nowhere near the same amount of W.

But I guess we dont have to go any deeper into that.
We pretty much agree.
