Price has been protected really well this season. The team has played GREAT defense in front of him. We have 3rd fewest shots/game. There are 2-3 games that we lost despite outplaying the opponent. I'd expect Price to win those games where we outplay the opponent and play sound defensive hockey. Right now, any goalie (EDIT: any legit NHL starters) would have the type of record he has. He has not been exceptional. The team has played great in front of him.
I'm sure everyone will claim that I hate Price so I can't admit he's been good, but why can I admit he was great in 2010-11 if that's the case ? I just think Price has been solid, above average but not one of the very best, as usual.
You know he can't win them all. Of course he played some bad or weaker games nobody is denying that. He's not perfect. There are better goalies than him this season and I'm sure they've played bad games too.
You're talking like Price should be 16-0 this season.
Habs fans got to be one of the whiniest fanbase in the league. Price has 11 wins leading the league and some still whine why he doesn't have 15 because there was winnable games and he didn't won all of them. Geez, if he was a little bit better in those loss, he would have been perfect this season. There was stoppable shot that he didn't stop, there was winnable games that he didn't win. Why he no perfect!!!!
And let me ask you, those easy games that you said Price won because of great defense and any decent 1st goalie would have won it, how do you know that? Do they have good rebound control like Price? Because bad control means more dangerous shot on net. Do you even agree that Price is good at controlling his rebound at least? Also, how many of those goalies are as good as Price around the net to clear the zone by himself on the PK or stop and control the puck behind the net and stop the opponents's forecheck which would mean more puck possession and shots against.
