He was top 5 last year, but this year (or any other year) far from it. And we won't talk about the playoffs here because it only gets worse.

And no matter how much you wish the idiotic haters were wrong, that's the truth. Sorry.

We're not overrating Price either. He is known by most as one of the, if not the, best young goalie in the NHL. Most people say him, Rinne and Rask interchangeable. There's a reason he's the favorite to be Canada's goalie in 2014 guys, it's not because he sucks
Sure you're not overrating him at all...

That's where I draw the line. He's promising yes, and he has the athleticism, size and technique to become quite good but he's not there yet, and goalies are really fickle and hard to predict.

The blind faith in Price is ridiculous really. There's reason to be cautiously optimistic but I'd like to see a repeat of last season and a strong showing in the playoffs before giving him a crazy contract.
