Halak was the #1 reason we made it that far, but you have to consider that a "hot goalie" is part of the team.

Giguere carried his 2003 Ducks to the Stanley Cup, likewise for Kiprusoff the year after.

In 05-06, Dwayne Roloson was otherworldly after the Oilers acquired him and Cam Ward came in and brilliantly took the #1 job from Geber.

In 06-07, Bryzgalov was a stud while Giguere was injured/not playing, and came close to an NHL record for shutout minutes. Then Giguere took over and was solid the rest of the way.

These are but examples how the goalie can be the #1 reason his team goes far. No reason to suggest Price can't do it.
