I know that it's extreme, but simply stating that you chose Price and can't understand why people choose Pleks because "Goalie>Forward" is a little too simple.
A PPG player who is great defensively and regularly prevents goals being scored on his team is worth at least 1 goal per game, no?
A 93% save percentage goaltender, replaced with a 90% save percentage goaltender (huge difference) results in less than a goal per game difference if the team lets in 30 shots on net.
Yes, but a goalie playing like Price brings confidence to the entire team allowing them to charge more instead of turtling around a weak goalie.
I also agree that at equal talent at their respective position, I would take goalie over forward. I'm of the old Habs philosophy of building a team from goalie 1st, D 2nd and forwards 3rd.
