The Nucks were a far superior team to the Habs in all facets. The number of shots is irrelevant. In fact a high shot total could easily lend itself to a higher save percentage. Quality of shots is what matters. My argument is that the Habs were the 3rd worst team in the league. The quality of shots that Price faced last year was abysmal. How did they compare to what Luongo face? Can't answer that. But Price was hung out to dry last year as the team was decimated, out of sync, distracted and downright putrid.
