Sorry but no he isn't a known top 2-3 guy in the league at handling the puck and you'd get laughed off these forums if you posted that anywhere but here.

I like him too, doesn't mean I have to be riding his dick as well.

And he is known for it by all is peers and its in the other teams game plan.

Price is a key piece to our transition game. Sucks you can't see that and only see is couple big mistakes.
Not true, if you take off the rose colored glasses and watch the game it's actually fairly obvious in some games. It isn't the big mistakes I'm even referring to it's the little ones. Sometimes you can watch him play the puck and he only has around a 50% success rate with the puck winding up on one of our players sticks. It doesn't take anything other than eyes and knowing how to count to notice it. I love Price but some people around here are seriously on the guys dick. He isn't even a top 5 at handling the puck let alone 2-3.

The only thing that sucks is that some people are so clearly bias in favor of our players and can't watch a game objectively, then go around making assumptions about HFboards posters who don't share their opinion.

I guess Thomas is not a terrible goalie since he gave up a couple of weak goals in the playoffs...
If you read my posts I never once brought up big glaring mistakes and in fact have always stated either that it was the little plays or didn't specify. But go ahead making an assumption about me because I don't agree with you.
