My take on this game:

Price sucked we all know that. But he wasn't the only one. The whole D was awful last night.

Bouillon, Markov, Subban and Emelin have 6 tunrovers just in the defensive zone.
How many time we have seen Tavares, Moulson, Nielson etc alone in front of the net? Add 2 pp goal to the mix and you get a recipe for disaster.

Not saying it's not Carey's fault because he's part of the problem (yesterday night) but the whole team was bad.

Another point, seems like every player were scared to lose yesterday all game long, afraid to take and give a hit to. Like last year.

Overall the game was a huge mess. Islanders have 1 line , there's no reason to let 6 goals in.

Markov is exausted out there. 27 minutes yesterday. I know Diaz is MIA but it's still too much for Markov (we all notice all slow he is).

My opinion on Price now:

I don't know if it's just a small portion of fefan that are just waiting for a bad performance to jump on Price but this board was crazy last night.
- Halak was better
- Never won nothing
- Trade Price
- Play Budaj for the rest of the season
etc etc.

Price never won nothing in the nhl yet? I agree. He's still the best goalie on the team + a franchise player + part of the next elite goalies of the league.

He's paid 6.5 we all know that but he's struggling like every good goalie at some point.

Budaj will play next game and good for him. Price will come back.

Nobody is no Roy or Brodeur, nobody is saying that, all the anti-Price need to chill out.

We aren't in first place just because of the system, we did some good thing, Price included.

We lost a game, let's just move on. Great team rise in adversity. Keep in mind that we don't have the players Chicago, Boston, LA etc etc have. I still think we don't have a first place team on paper but since the start of the season we were playing like one.
