Globally, stats favor Price. But not that much...

Pavelec: http://www.nhl.com/ice/player.htm?id=8471715
Price: http://www.nhl.com/ice/player.htm?id=8471679

So, still think Price is gonna sign over 6M/per?

As another comparable....Price is no Rinne...yet...

I'm thinking mid-term deal between 4-5M would appear to be the likelyhood of retaining Price's services.
Depending on the number of years he gets, I think were looking at a cap hit in between 4.75 and 6 for Price
