What expectation do we have this year? I see Moen gone and Noky signed seems were goona be fighting for our lives again just to make 8th, which is bad.Why?Because Price isn't making 2.75 million anymore.
Now we give him 7 million, i tell you and everyone else i think you know ,a bad stretch at 2.75 million is different then at 7 million. This is Montreal not Florida.Same way Vancouver fans TURNED on Loungo...WHY?
Phoenix Coyotes didn't need Price in net.
Florida Panthers made playoff without Price in net
NJ Devils went to Cup with a 39 year old net minder
None of those teams finished last.
There is life after Price, and with the big return you get from him, you never miss a thing .
Phoenix had Smith, Panthers had Theodore and NJ had Brodeur. They're all good goaltenders. But what made the difference in the end was the team in front of them. None of the goalies really stole the show. They were important and made a difference, but they weren't a brick wall.
We know Price is good. Problem this season, well there were too many of those. Our team played like ****. Price makes a difference.
Yes, so will Brodeur and Nabokov
if we manage to get them
, which we won't be the only ones trying to sign them. Actually, I find that Nabokov i choky in the playoffs.
Thinking that we would get a huge return for a goaltender, such as a top 2 liner, is laughable. Then hoping that you could sign some of the best goalies that easily...
