He's had bad games. Every goalie does. Habs fans hold Price up to an insane standard - according to some Price is the only guy on the team who deserves any credit and we'd be the worst team in the history of the NHL without him, to others every time Price could hypothetically save a goal he concedes he's single-handedly costing us games. I know having a terrible offense makes the goalie stand out more, but you can only do that so much.

I don't get why the man can't be judged like a normal goalie. Look at Pekka Rinne; one of the few guys right now I will say is probably better than Price (for now), on a team just as reliant on their goaltending as we are, has been up and down two this season. It happens.

Unless you are Tim Thomas.
