Again....how do we know FOR SURE without having any idea of how he'll conduct himself in the playoffs? We think, we predict, he will probably be as fine.....but do we know FOR SURE? If that happens that he's not that good, will he be the first GREAT regular season goalie that only becomes GOOD or AVERAGE when it counts the most?

Price's value is all about reality mixed with potential. But the potential needs to transform itself into reality. And that will come with the playoffs. Not entirely his fault, we all know that. But he has been drafted as a top 5 player in 2005. And chances are we will know a little bit of his worth in the playoffs in....2013. 'Cause right now it is inconclusive. Okay playoff in 07-08. Good playoffs in 10-11, yet, only a 7-games stint. Again, never entirely his fault, but in general his numbers aren't there AND/OR a lenghty period in the playoffs isn't there either. He will need a Halak run so that we'd start establishing his real value. And some kind of consistency as well. Thing is, he will have a contract before this happens. So what he will be paid, chances are it will NOT be his real value after all.
