(don't take this as a shot at Price, but there is other players we should have never let go of because "attitude" problems)
It wasn't just attitude with some guys on the Habs. It was also effort or lack thereof, on and off the ice. Glencross is a hard worker that isn't his problem and he doesn't seem to be a team **** disturber. He just didn't like his ice time at one point and got benched for poor play in the defensive zone, I believe.
You have to give credit to Glencross for taking it like a man and stepping up his play. We had too many players when presented with the same situation didn't work to get themselves out of it, but whined about it and sulked on and off ice.
Price didn't stick around because he was Gainey's pet. He stuck around because he's talented and he took his demotion to Halak with class. You didn't see anything from him last year but support of Halak and his teammates. Price worked hard to re-gain the trust of both Martin and his teammates.
That's something that a lot of players who are no longer with the organization weren't able to do. I don't miss any of them. Entitlement is not a good thing.
