I wouldn't trade Price for any goalie in the league either, I think he's at least as good as the other elites in the league and is probably the most complete goalie in the league when you factor in his size and puck handling.

However, fair or not, few people besides Habs fans are going to say he's the best in the league right now. He doesn't play for as good of a team as some of his competition, but the fact is until his team starts winning regularly, Price will have his doubters. Guys like Luongo and Ward are more "established" than Price, even if he's better.

And I really don't want to hear the term generational talent again. Patrick Roy was a generational talent, let's be fair, even the biggest Price fanboy on the planet couldn't equate him with Roy right now.
