Thats the only problem I have with Price and his adoring fans. If he had improved his record and stats in each of the last 2 years like Halak did....well I'd be raving about Price too and standing behind him 100%....but he didn't so I don't understand why people are going crazy about him and saying he's gonna be awesome....he's done nothing to show that.
He has a career .912 save%, what exactly constitutes a "solid NHL goalie" to you? I agree Halak outplayed him but considering he's gone, that should have no bearing on your view of Price.

He had a very good rookie year, had a sophomore slump but he was definitely better last year than his second year. I'd call that progression.
