Cam Ward was lights out in that run and pretty sure he was Conn Smyth wasn't he?
Ward was a great player.

So was Koivu, so was the Edmonton goalie, and I forget who else they injured. They're the last impressive cup winner of the cap era imo... notice that they have consistently sucked since.

Anyway, with respect to the thread question, yes, I think Price can help us win a cup, but 2006 Carolina is not a good analogy imo, because Habs as currently constituted can't play that dirty game. A better analogy might be 1993 Montreal. 1993 Montreal is often considered to be the Patrick Roy show, but my understanding (I was 9 at the time) is that there was actually a very good team playing in front of Roy.
