... that's not what happened.
Let Price play 1 game this year before we **** all over him. I'm going to go out on a limb and say he matured while riding the pine and watching Halak quietly play one excellent game after another. I believe that Halak's work ethic rubbed off on him, and that watching Halak (#271 overall) out play him gave him some sense of humility.
You know why Kopitar was not drafted by the Habs ? .Because they has a bad experience in 2003 with another almost unknown European player: A.Kostitsyn.
As for the thread's original question.
YES. Price is destined to fail in Montreal.
75% Gainey's fault
25% Price's fault
