I would only slightly disagree. I agree he is lights out this year, but his December was a bit rough, as was the teams. I don't think there is too much coincidence there. Price after Gainey traded Huet was very, very good though as well. There was only one game against San Jose where he was a bit too porous, but he was really good the rest of the year.
What I am waiting for now is to see him in the playoffs. Besides the '08 playoff series against the Bruins, Price has not had much luck. I really expect that to change this year though. I can tell you that if I was another team, I would not look forward to a playoff series against Price, or for the matter the Habs. They just seem so much stronger mentally then most teams - the only team I think that is stronger and better prepared in the Eastern conference is Pittsburgh and Philly. Credit where it's due, Martin has worked miracles with this team this year.
