I'm not going to vote. I like both goalies. Possibly the best 2 young goalies in the game. And I look forward to watching them battle for the next 10 - 15 years.

Although Montreal doesn't have Chara they also have had one of the best defensive teams in the NHL for the past few years and a penalty kill that for a long time was 2nd to none in the NHL.

Both goalies still have a few question marks about them. Although Price is big and has great positioning, his glove hand still seems a bit slow and I'm not as sold on his reaction time. Splitting hairs - he's still fantastic.

Rask hasn't had enough starts for me to be completely comfortable with him as I've seen way to many goalies disappear after a wonderful 50 - 100 starts. He's also a bit more difficult to judge as it's difficult to not compare him to Thomas which isn't fair. Although, in the long run, having to battle Thomas for starts should do nothing but reap benefits down the road. (mixed metaphors)
