He's a 22 year old who has been assigned the duties of the #1Dman for the Montreal Canadians. People talk **** because he makes lots of mistakes (as young players naturally do), but his ice time speaks for itself. He is the 1st iin Average Time On Ice with 23:43, over a full minute ahead of the 2nd place Gorges with 22:32. The fact is that he is not getting traded, and the coaching and players are trying to get PK focused on overcoming his growing pains faster than others would need to in more limited roles.

The scrutiny this 22 year old is under is enormous, obviously Price and him have an affinity for each other and no doubt its related to their shared experience in the intense spotlight. Price has been dealing with it for longer and more capable of adapting, but as we all remember he did have a sophmore slump of his own.
