Every team is bound to have a bad game, same with every goaltender.

I don't really see it as necessarily a knock on Price, but I remember Halak stealing some games, I remember Theodore stealing some games, and I remember Roy stealing some games. I don't remember seeing a game with Price in net and thinking "Wow, without Price that game would have definitely been a loss."

I definitely prefer the steadiness of Price to almost any other goalie in the league(save Rinne or maybe Lundqvist) but it would be nice to be able to point to a single game and say "Price won that."
