Truly top level starting goalies are the rarest thing in hockey. Price has shown enough to join a very small group, and his ceiling hasn't been reached. He's a franchise goalie who has shown great character and resiliency being in the spotlight from a very young age. We're lucky to have him. I think the vast majority of other team's fans would agree.
There's a few problems that I have with Price and no that doesn't make me a hater. I want the Habs to win regardless of who's in nets:

1- Price hasn't stepped up in the playoffs
2- It's 2013, it's 8 years since we drafted him.. enough of "he's young"
3- He's getting paid 6.5 M $ per year. We should expect consistency and domination.
4- He lets in a bad goal every week or it seems so.

Is he good? Yes definitely!
Is he a top 5 goalie in the league? No, I don't know why people keep saying that.

Would the leafs want him? Yes definitely but what's your point?
